The final weigh in marked a remarkable amount of weight loss in the history of The Biggest Loser. Michael Ventrella may be The Biggest Loser but he is truly The Biggest winner! This is a man with a huge heart! Be sure to check out photos and videos below.

As a biography, Michael Ventrella is a deejay from Chicago, Illinois. He is 31 years old. Growing up, he has continuously struggled with his weight trying everything from using over-the-counter and prescription pills, diets, nutritionists, starvation and bulimia. He is most-known for winning the title The Biggest Loser winner 2010. He shed the most weight in the hit television series to date. When he began the show, he weighed in at 526 pounds, ending with an amazing 262 pounds, in just six months.

Not only was Ventrella the “heaviest contestant” on the phenomenal show, he also trimmed down the most weight by any other contestant. By the final weigh in, he “lost 50.19 percent of his body weight” totaling 264 pounds, easily breaking the record from last year’s winner, Danny Cahill, who shed 239 pounds. As for his competition? Second place winner, Ashely Johnston and third-place winner Daris George, stood trim and thin, as the remaining finalists. Even though they did not win the grand prize of $250,000, they won their life-long battles with weight, the biggest gift in the world.

After accomplishing his biggest challenge, and seeing the total amount of weight loss, he excitedly commented, “I thought there was a glitch in the matrix!” adding, “I thought, ‘What is wrong with the monitor?’ I can’t believe this. I just proved no matter what it is, possibility or not, it can happen.”

Before his winning weigh in, Michael gave his biggest supporter, his mother, a flower, who lost an estimated 114 pounds on his behalf. Ventrella spoke very highly about his motivating mother sharing, “I figured I am going to go ahead and do it because that lady means so much to me and is my inspiration. Not only did she give me birth, she gave me the motivation to change my life and have a rebirth.” Wow, what a touching moment.
