Coast’s Biggest Loser Makes Cut
The biggest loss – Regarding John’s heart condition and it’s effect on his time in the house (Sunshine Coast Daily)
Evicted for breaking the rules, John will not be invited to the finale

John has a very serious heart condition, leading to him being effectively disqualified from the game proper. He will not be eligible for the prize money at the end as that would essentially be offering him an incentive to put his life in very serious jeopardy. Instead he will be supervised and have his diet looked after and he’ll be allowed to do very moderate levels of exercise. The Biggest Loser is hoping that John’s progress will serve as an inspiration for other Australians in a similar position to get fit and healthy themselves.
John’s daughter was due to go into labour on the day of the first weigh in at the White House. He has said that while it is a big sacrifice, it will be worth it in the long run if he can be fit and healthy for his daughter and her child.
