Quote: “They tell me I have a heart of gold.”
Graham’s biggest fear is dying at an early age and wants to see his niece and nephews grow up. He is motivated to extend his life because right now he doesn’t think he will be alive in 10 years. He admires all the past contestants as it shows him what he too can achieve at the end; he wants to be taught how to properly look after himself in all aspects of life. Graham would like to be able to fit into a racing driver’s suit and do hot laps in a V8 racing car.

Graham has been large his entire life and all his family are overweight. For the last three years he has wanted to go on The Biggest Loser to get the help he needs to live a healthy lifestyle and to start a family.

This country boy loves his community and wants to help out more but is restricted by his weight. “I would like to fulfil my goal of getting my compressed air license for fire fighting, but I have to be under 100 kilograms.”

Graham doesn’t ask girls out anymore as he had had too much rejection from women. He is determined to shed the kilograms to gain confidence and make new friends with the hope he will find someone he can settle down with and start a family. He is the first son and he wants to give his parents more grandchildren.

Graham has always looked after everyone else before himself, “they tell me I have a heart of gold,” but now it’s time for him to put himself first and get his game on!

Graham’s hobbies include fishing and golf.

My reason for applying for The Biggest Loser:
To lose weight and extend my life as I don’t think I’d still be alive in 10 years otherwise.
I first realised I was overweight and need help when:
I have been overweight all my life, but the last three years I have wanted to get on The Biggest Loser to get the help that I need.
I hope to lose weight but gain:
New friends, new confidence and hopefully find someone and start a family.
A past contestant I’ve found inspiring is:
All of them as it shows me what I can achieve at the end.
The best part of being on The Biggest Loser is:
To be taught how to look after myself in all aspects of life.
I am preparing myself for this journey by:
Enjoying the support of my family and friends – it’s been brilliant.
I think the most difficult part of being on The Biggest Loser will be:
Missing all my family – especially at Christmas.
My biggest weakness is:
Alcohol and big portion sizes.
Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
Snacking when I shouldn’t and my portion sizes.
The one thing I want Australia to know about me is:
I’m a community man – I always looks after everyone else before myself. They tell me I have a heart of gold.
I think I will win The Biggest Loser because:
It has taken me three years to mentally prepare for this and now I’m ready to give 110% effort at every challenge and hurdle they put in front of me.
One thing I have never done because I was overweight I will do once I lose the weight is:
Be trained up for Caba firefighting RFS and fit in a race driver suit and do hot laps in a V8 racing car.
