Here is why he wanted to be one of The Mid-South's Biggest Losers:
"I am a 44 year old single father of 2 children. I am on disabilty and have tried to lose weight several times with no success. I am currently trying another diet- but it isn't really working for me. I am motivated but don't seem to ever achieve results. I am a candidate for a gastric bypass but really feel like with a little help and motivation I could lose the weight naturally. Thanks for sponsoring this and I hope I am lucky enough to be chosen! (My weight is 450 lbs.) THANKS!"
