Ed: The Husband
Team: Bob's Team
Hometown: Raleigh, NC
"We want children someday and we don't want to have them like this."
Ed is a laid-back Southern chef. He is sincere and an extremely hard worker while running his own “one-man-show” catering business. With specialties like his irresistible mac’n’cheese, and shrimp and grits, how could he resist not tasting his dishes all day long? Ed was raised in a home where food was the center of everything. He began to really put on weight in his early teen years due to a combination of laziness and junk food. With his wife, Heba, Ed keeps a very busy social calendar where wine, food and friends make it hard to stay healthy. An all-around good soul, Ed wants to change his life in hopes of having a family someday. He is ready to turn his life around for good!
This hard-working, super-social husband and wife are always on the go! Both extremely competitive, they definitely help balance each other out. Heba brings the fire and energy and Ed cools things down with his laid-back Southern charm. They complete each other on many levels; from inspiring each other’s competitive spirits to being each other’s biggest cheerleaders. They have a giant love for life and it is obvious to everyone who knows them!
