Holy weight loss!
On last night’s The Biggest Loser finale, Danny Cahill didn’t just take home the title – he set a series record for most pounds ever shed on the show!
The Oklahoma native, a father of two, dropped 239 pounds over the last few months, falling from 430 to 191 pounds and being named the reality program’s champion over Rudy Pauls.
After earning the prize of $250,000, Cahill turned emotional on the finale. He said:
“Somebody in the audience was holding up a picture of my grandmother, who I was so close to, who died about 10 years ago and every time I would go on a run, I would say, ‘This is for you, Ada,’ and I know she is up there watching me.”
Danny also credited his wife of 14 years, Darci, with helping him achieve his goals.
“My wife works out with me, and if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have won Biggest Loser,” he told Us Weekly. “My wife and I have been through a lot: 430 pounds that she didn’t sign up for! She met me at 175 pounds.”
239 pounds (or like four Nicole Richies) later, Danny Cahill is on top of the reaity TV world. Congrats!
