We last saw John — a Boston fella who, at age 27, weighs 750 pounds — when he was responding to his YouTube audience about whether or not he is gay. (Draw your own conclusions.) But all of his videos on the user account “fatboygetdown” have since been pulled. Even the one that’d been seen nearly a million times, where he is dancing shirtless. Is it because John is deciding to do something with is life? Yes. He wants to be on NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
Plenty of folks would conclude that John’s videos were embarrassing. Possibly so. But we’re enthralled with his new mission: Get on The Biggest Loser. If you’ve never seen the weight-loss reality show, you’re missing out. Yes, it’s a spectacle, but it’s also some of the most gut-wrenching, tear-inducing television on primetime. Yes, more than Grey’s Anatomy. The best part of the show are the “reveals,” when the formerly obese reveal their new svelte selves. This isn’t about pointing fingers are heavy people. It’s about celebrating their will power — of which we have none! — and dedication to living healthy lives.
So we’re joining John’s plight to get him on The Biggest Loser. John pleads that you make his case to producers by writing to:
The Biggest Loser Casting
