Hundreds vie for spot on "Biggest Loser"

Hundreds vie for spot on "Biggest Loser": "Staff with the show pointed to one man who clearly had that strong desire -- Larry Culley, 58, a lawyer and aspiring voice artist from Staten Island, N.Y., who drove into Pittsburgh and arrived at 11 a.m. yesterday. Mr. Culley, who weighs 366 pounds and wants to get down to about 200 pounds, said this is his fourth audition attempt.
He said he wants to be selected for the show because his weight is interfering with his life and his health. He said he believes he has what it takes to connect with the audience."

I wonder. What was Larry's weight the other three times he auditioned for the show? And, what did he eat as he arrived in Pittsburgh?

There is no time like the present, pal.

By the way, I found out in our recent trip to Peoria that one of my friends from the good old days was on a past season of "The Biggest Loser." He was a firefighter who had a vintage firetruck and owned an ACE Hardware Store -- and his kids were swimmers. His son was a very fast swimmer and swam in the Big 10 Conference -- and is now a high school swim coach.

I'll need to go back and look online at hulu at the past seasons to find some of his segments.
