“I really want to help Tiffany and I want to achieve my own goals so that I will be able to live a full and active life with my family.”

Bob was a policeman for 26 years and one of the red markers in the history of his weight gain was becoming a deskbound cop after being a street policeman. The real problem came later, though, when Bob opened a roadhouse café, where he eats hot chips pretty much all day when he’s working, as well as all the other fried temptations.

This Biggest Loser contestant misses all the activities he used to enjoy doing, such as abseiling, canoeing, hiking and scuba diving. He also wants his grandkids to see his true self when they look at him – not just his extra weight. This business owner also wants embarrassing incidents, such as the time an office chair collapsed under him in an important interview, to be a thing of the past.

The grandfather is very close to his Biggest Loser partner, his daughter-in-law Tiffany, who he regards as his own daughter and who he has always encouraged to lose weight.

“This is not just about losing the weight but changing the limiting factors that are holding me down,” Bob explains of being part of the Biggest Loser. “I said to Tiffany that if we are willing to humiliate ourselves on national TV, then we are willing to do anything because we have reached that point where we can’t take it anymore!”

Favourite foods:
Kebabs, curries, Mexican.
Krispy Kreme Donuts with freezing cold, full cream milk.
Root beer (Bob has an American root beer shrine in his house).
Roast pork or lamb with buttery mashed potato.
Pavlova/trifle.


TiffanyName: Tiffany Herdsman
Age: 27
Height: 163cm
Lives: WA
Status: married to Ben.
Children: Isabelle (1)
Occupation: part time office worker/mother
Biggest Loser partner: Bob (father-in-law)

“Being on the Biggest Loser is going to be an internal competition with myself more than anything.”

As well as being a mother to Isabelle, Tiffany works for her father-in-law, Bob, carrying out office duties for the family roadhouse café. She is very close to her father-in-law and says that their weight issues draw them together. “We have a mutual understanding of each other and we share a closer bond together than anyone else in the family because of our weight and our life histories,” Tiffany explains.

A devoted wife to Bob’s son, Ben, Tiffany worries about the effect her weight gain is having on her marriage, “My husband likes a curvaceous woman, but the amount of weight I’ve put on has made him unhappy and I know this.”

This contestant wants the energy to fully participate in family outings again, as it is she always feels tired and is embarrassed to be seen with others in public. Tiffany wants to be a more active mother for Isabelle and a healthier mother for any future children she may have – a difficult ultrasound due to her weight when she was pregnant is an experience that this young mother is keen not to repeat.

This chocoholic wants to change a lifestyle that consists of watching too much television and eating a block of chocolate when she’s both happy and sad.

“It is going to be hard and it is going to be confronting, but I finally want to achieve my objective,” expects Tiffany of the Biggest Loser. “This show will be the reality check that I need.”

Favourite foods:
Creamy garlic prawns
Lasagne
Beef and rice with béarnaise sauce
Hot chips
Chocolate

    How Rude are you calling Tiffany a mutt, the whole point of this show is to make alliances. Are you jealous are you as that's what it sounds like, and I must say how UN AUSSIE you are for even posting that comment. To you and your family if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it at all as it's people like you that put others in a depression and can start there eating problem. Go get your head read.

    your just another one of those racist little homos that tries to be a keyboard homo
    hiding behind his/her keyboard you homos are why the Cronulla riots started by
    name calling you are seriously pathetic and stupid for thinking you can even post
    much less be mature on the internet if you have been taught to be a keyboard
    hero try again then again your lazy sausage fingers make up for all the crap
    grammar you are typing right now and by the way retard I said no offense which
    means no offending words intended and if you and your fat family think that its
    a bad thing you need to use a dictionary cause you seriously are a nethanderthal
    YOU FAIL! and you need to grow up and get a life already the way you type is like
    a little kid just like your insults get over yourself already! I hope this shows that
    your un compromisable efforts to try and take over comments on the internet are
    just a noobish failed attempt you seriously are mistaken

    Omg I am so laughing at your comment right now fat lips!

    your telling me to get my head right look who’s talking big mouth who thinks
    they know everything about a weight loss show its just a TV show no one cares
    get over your life!
