Let's see what our favorite Biggest Losers are up to
We caught up with past Biggest Loser contestants at the casting call on Saturday. Bill, Jim, Stacey and Jenn loved NeverSayDiet and their energy was incredible. They all looked great, maintained their weight loss and have ventured into other projects to help others do the same
The Germanakos Twins (Season 4)
Since they have left the show as the overall winner (Bill) and the at-home winner (Jim), the brothers have created a company called Weight Loss Twins LLC (WeightLossTwins.com). The brothers go around the country talking about their Biggest Loser experience and inspire others to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle. They've also started a new website (TeamDiets.com) where fans can get advice and information on everything from diet and exercise tips to healthy recipes. They're still great friends with all the past contestants and meet up with them from time to time. They even called Bernie on Saturday to bust his chops a little bright and early in the morning.
What Bill said about the casting call
"Let me say what a pleasure it was to work with the great folks from iVillage and NeverSayDiet.com during the recent open casting calls for Biggest Loser 8!!! My brother Jim and I had a wonderful time."
What Jim said about the casting call
"Being able to say hi and spend time chatting with all the excited prospective contestants and trainers was great."
Jenn Widder (Season 5)
At the casting call, Jenn was all smiles as she came out to help us out and pump up the fans. She told us that she's still great friends with Maggie and currently works for the American Cancer Society as the events coordinator. Jenn and Maggie worked together at a weight-loss camp in Ferndale, NY, and were thrilled that sign-ups for the camp increased after they returned from the show. Jenn is inspiring people all over—we love it!
What Jenn said about the casting call
"Sitting at the tables listening to the stories of each person's journey of what made them want to try to be the next Biggest Loser made me realize how lucky I was to have been chosen for the show. It truly amazed me how many people are touched by the show and want to be a part of it. I met some of the greatest people on Saturday, some stole my hearts for forever."
Stacey Capers (Season 6)
Although their time was cut short on Season 6, Stacey and Adam have maintained their weight loss (Did you see how great they looked at the Biggest Loser live finale?) and started a website for their company to help others that are struggling with weight loss (ICanDoFitness.com). "We wanted to spread the knowledge of what we learned through our experience and inspire people to believe that they too can do anything and everything they put their mind to. All they have to do is prove it to themselves," she said. On top of that, they are also creating a non-profit foundation called "Capers 4 Fit Kids" dedicated to preventing childhood obesity.
What Stacey said about the casting call
"The casting call was awesome! It was so wonderful to meet people and talk to them about their dreams and aspirations and the challenges they have faced throughout their lives because of obesity. There was so excitement in the air, along with the wind chill! It was great talking to them and it was touching to know how much they are inspired by The Biggest Loser to make a change in their lives."
