Patrick House is one very happy skinny man as he has been named as the winner of The Biggest Loser 2010. At the beginning of the contest, the currently unemployed House from Vicksburg, Mississippi was as big as a house tipping the scales at more than 400 pounds at a height of six feet two inches. At the end of the season, he had lost more than 180 pounds.
The former college football player, who now ways 220 pounds says that he is planning on repaying friends and family members he has borrowed money from in the past with some of the money he won for being named the Biggest Loser. What other plans does he have for his $250,000? He plans on taking his family on vacation and then setting up a weight loss center to help other people lose weight.
“That 400 pound guy is long gone,” he told Us. “He’s never coming back. It’s a lifestyle change it’s not a diet. I lost my job in January, so a lot of the money is going to pay back my family and friends that I borrowed from just to live this year. It’s unrealistic to say I’m never going to eat my mom’s pecan pie or my wife’s goat cheese pizza. I’m going to have that, but, instead of eating a half of a pecan pie or an entire goat cheese pizza, it’s all in portion control.”
