Damien seems to have it all. With a busy rock band that plays regularly in Darwin venues, a loving girlfriend and confidence to burn, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only one small Ã¢â‚¬â€œ or should we say large Ã¢â‚¬â€œ detail that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t quite fit: the fact that heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 216 kilos!
It just doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t seem right to Damien who has 6 athletic brothers and knows that under the flab, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a fit body waiting to be freed. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s tired of being the odd man out in his close family and sick of the niggling paranoias that come with being so large. All his life, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dealt with the embarrassment of being overweight. In fact, early in his life, DamienÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s parents tested him for thyroid after seeing early signs of obesity. Before moving to Darwin, the talented muso lost 40 kilos, but quickly returned to his unhealthy eating habits.
Lately, the paranoia associated with his weight has become difficult to bear. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s even wondered if fans of his band are more interested in his talent or his extreme stage presence! As the largest competitor on the show, Damien needs The Biggest Loser to provide the discipline and expertise to achieve an incredible metamorphosis. He loves his life; now itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s time for Damien to take the dramatic steps to prolong it.
