Heaviest Man in 'Biggest Loser' Wins Season 9


Michael Ventrella who started off with 526 pounds beats younger and more athletic Ashley Johnston and Daris George in winning 'The Biggest Loser: Couples 3'.

For his determination to be fit and healthier, Michael Ventrella has been declared the winner of "The Biggest Loser" season 9. The 30-year-old DJ from Chicago, Illinois was literally the biggest and heaviest man in the camp but he managed to downsize his weight from 526 pounds to 262 pounds. That would be a drop of 50.19% of his body weight.

As the champion, Ventrella is awarded $250,000 prize. "I am feeling proud of myself-which is a new feeling," he said upon winning. "This time I gave it my all. I did it the right way and it worked." He started the competition accompanied by his mother Maria who was eliminated in week 3.

Coming in second place was Ashley Johnston who lost 48.93% of her Body Mass Index (BMI), narrowly followed by Daris George who lost 48.55%. Koli Palu who was also in the final was eliminated early but he received $100,000 for winning the At-Home prize. He lost 188 pounds or 53.35% of his BMI.
