Hamish wants to make himself happy as well as make his parents proud.

Hamish has been overweight since the age of five and didn’t go a day without being bullied at school. He is determined to put all these bad memories behind him and focus on losing weight and the exciting prospect of living a new life. Hamish would like to regain confidence so he can find happiness and maybe even love!

Hamish would like to inspire people who struggle with the same weight issues and to encourage them to make a change for the better. Although the most difficult part for him will be “trying not to make a clown of myself,” he is preparing himself for the challenge by focussing on what will be a fantastic end result by reaching his goals.

For Hamish it’s ‘game on.’ He wants to try new things outside of his comfort zone. He is determined to win the title of Biggest Loser no matter what and aspires to be like Sam Rouen from Season 3 who won the title (Hamish can relate to his struggles).

Hobbies include cooking, driving, listening to music and going to the movies. Hamish has a fear of riding lifts in buildings.

My reason for applying for The Biggest Loser:
It was a last resort for me to make myself happy and my parents proud.
I first realised I was overweight and need help when:
I couldn’t go a day without getting bullied at school.
I hope to lose weight but gain:
Happiness, confidence and a new life.
A past contestant I’ve found inspiring is:
Sam – as I’m young like he was, I found it easy for myself to relate to his struggles.
The best part of being on The Biggest Loser is:
Knowing I may inspire someone who struggles with the same issues I do, to lose weight and change for the better.
I am preparing myself for this journey by:
Focussing on the fantastic end result that I can look forward to reaching at the end of my journey.
I think the most difficult part of being on The Biggest Loser will be:
Trying not to make a clown of myself.
Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
My stubborness to try new things outside of my comfort zone.
The one thing I want Australia to know about me is:
I have a secret fear of lifts in buildings.
I think I will win The Biggest Loser because:
I will win The Biggest Loser no matter what, as I’ll be reclaiming a new life back by losing the weight, regardless.
One thing I have never done because I was overweight I will do once I lose the weight is:
Go on a bike ride with my father and also maybe race him.
