Neill was born in Indiana and moved every few years due to his father being in the Air Force. He is thankful for this because he was able to see the beauty of his own country and that of other countries.
Neill now works as a web developer for an advertising firm in Oklahoma City. He is very proud of marrying his wife and having their son Aiden.
Neill and Amanda have a very tight bond and absolutely adore one another. That love will shine through and propel them towards their weight loss goals on the show.
Amanda's life began about 4 miles from where she now lives in Oklahoma City. She's the only child of an accountant and a draftsman. She graduated from high school in 1996 as valedictorian, and immediately began her art degree at The University of Oklahoma.
Amanda met her husband Neill in 1999 when they walked down the aisle the first time together at their best friends' wedding (as maid of honor and best man). They married in October of 2004, and almost 9 months to the day later, their son Aiden was born. Amanda is now an art teacher at the Oklahoma City Art Museum and The Fine Arts Institute in Edmond Oklahoma. Most of her free time is spent chasing her 2 year-old son, painting, dabbling in photography and eating.
