Oh hey! And then it's time to catch up with O'Neal, of O'Neal and Sunshine fame! As you may recall, the two initially didn't "earn" a place on campus. But then they came back and won our hearts, until they got a little annoying. But mostly they stuck with the heart-winning. O'Neal started on The Biggest Loser at 389 pounds, and now weighs 225. He looks pretty great, and has apparently dumped all of his financial resources into someplace called Fitness North. Oh wow, that makes me really nervous. It's a fitness program in Minnesota featuring amazing hikes and amazing cardio workouts and a lot of similar things to the Biggest Loser ranch. Sunshine is on hand to yell at the campers, or whatever you call them, when she isn't in school. O'Neal says that he's taking what he learned on the show, and teaching it to others, who in turn teach it to other people. I think you're REALLY paying it forward when you maybe go bankrupt in service of helping others lose weight. Let's hope we don't next hear them in an NPR piece about the intersection of reality TV and the economic downturn.
Next, we catch up with season seven father and son duo, Mike and Ron. If you'll recall, Mike had a sibling at home, Max, who was also quite obese. Ron, whose current total weight loss is 174 pounds, says that getting Max on board has been their biggest mission. Max was seventeen years old, and over 400 pounds. Also, he was super, super heartbreaking. And now, Max is 18 and weighs 270 pounds -- that's 160 pounds total lost! Ooh, this makes me so happy. Max says that he has a new lease on life, and actually has a smile on his face. He's well on his way to becoming a hottie like his brother. Ron is very proud. They have a new business too -- the Morelli Health and Fitness Camp. It was Ron's brainchild, and he says that he wants to help kids who were in the same boat as he and Mike and Max were. We talk to Sam, one of the campers, who is now adorably into exercise. Ron gives Bob credit for his success, for pushing him farther than he thought he could go, but never so far that he couldn't do it. Bob saves lives!
