"Biggest Loser is going even bigger with its next season, when 526 pound Michael Ventrella -- the show's largest contestant ever -- tips the scales for the show's ninth season. Prior to Ventrella's 500+ pound weigh-in, the heaviest contestant was in season eight, when Shay Sorrells began the show at 476 pounds." I hope the guy is able to lose weight, but being so large, it will be interesting to see just exactly what he's able to do from the beginning. For example, how long could a person that big realistically stay on a treadmill? A minute or two at most??
