Rick is determined to lose weight so he can fulfil his dream of becoming a policeman. His current BMI is over 40 and to get into the police force he needs a BMI of 30. He’s dreamt of being a policeman since the age of 16 and feels The Biggest Loser is his only hope to lose weight.

Rick lacks self confidence and wants to regain control of his life and be able to have the career he desires.

Jarna Craig

Friend of fellow teacher, Lisa
Age: 38
Lives: Ellenbrook, WA
Height: 171 cm
Marital Status: Single
Children: None
Occupation: School Principal (kids with disabilities – mostly intellectual)

Jarna is worried that she is going to be fat, forty and alone if she doesn’t lose weight now. At 38 years old she is single and blames it on her weight. She would like to find love and have a baby but feels there is no chance of that whilst she’s still at her current size.

With a family history of heart attacks – sadly claiming the lives of her grandfather and uncle – Jarna is terrified she’s headed in the same direction.

Although she’s confident and outspoken she hates being labelled as “the funny fat chick”.

Jarna admits being married to her work – she’s the first one in and the last one out – so has become used to snacking to save on time.

She is taking part in The Biggest Loser with her co-worker Lisa who is her partner-in-crime at work where eating badly is concerned.
