My reason(s) for applying for Biggest Loser are:
I’m marrying my fiance, she’s 50kg and I want to look good for the wedding and trying to have another baby. Also to help inspire other male viewers in my position; make my seven year old son proud and be able to ride my horse again.

I first realized I was overweight and needed help when:
I did a body profile and my body age was 42 and my insides feel like they are rotting away!

I hope to lose weight but gain:
Skills (for working out and nutrition); lifestyle changes; friendships and inspiration.

The previous contestant I have found inspiring was (and why?)
Munnalita; I liked her because she helped others, was very diplomatic and worked bloody hard to lose a stack of weight.

The best part of being on Biggest Loser is:
Working with like minded individuals to achieve a common goal; given total focus to my health as opposed to focusing on work and making health and nutrition high priority

I am preparing myself for this journey by:
Getting mentally ready for the workload; letting myself be out of control and accepting what happens.

I think the most difficult part of being on Biggest Loser will be:
Getting kicked out before achieving my goals; being away from my fiance and seven year old son and being away from my horses.

My biggest weakness is:
Lack of will power with food- I see it and then I eat it!

Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
Always turning to humour during embarrassing, fat moments and not eating healthy food.

The one thing I want Australia to know about me is that:
I’m down to earth, hardworking middle aged bloke that has stuffed up my life by focusing on everything but my health. Also, that I love my missus and family.

I think I will win the Biggest Loser because:
I have the weight to lose; I am mentally prepared for this and I’m like a race horse in the mounting yard, ready to go – just needs someone to take me to the gates and push me over the line!

One thing I have never done because I was overweight and will do once I lose the weight will be to:
I haven’t rode my horse in ages and have a baby with my partner.
