The youngest competitor in this year’s Biggest Loser at 18-years-old, Nathaniel can’t recall a time when he was thin, only the feeling of alienation that stemmed from his being bigger than the other kids at school.
Nathaniel‘s emotional wellbeing took a devastating hit when his older brother, who suffered from cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, passed away a few years ago. Distraught, the younger sibling was robbed not just of a dear friend, but also the motivation to do anything but eat.
Presently working at the KFC that his mother manages, Nathaniel is tired of people making flippant associations between his job and his weight, and with the help of his uncles is determined to take control of his life and realise the potential he’s squandered for far too long.
