Who says winning is everything? If you ask Rebecca Meyer, she might just tell you losing is. The latest castoff from "The Biggest Loser" told Jay Leno last Tuesday night that not only has she shed 122 pounds, but that weight loss allowed her to find the love of her life -- who has also lost big.
"I'm actually dating Daniel Wright...Daniel from the show," Rebecca said. Swearing that nothing had happened between the two during "The Biggest Loser," Rebecca said things heated up later. "After leaving the show we talked for, like, five, six-hour conversations and then...he told me he had feelings."
In case you're not a Biggest Loser junkie, 25-year-old Rebecca started this season at 279 pounds. Her weight struggles have gone from taunting schoolmates writing "Becky is fat" on her garage door to people now saying, "She's so ripped." Rebecca's new-found slim figure has given her a new-found confidence and when asked about being eliminated from the reality show, she smiled and replied, "I think it was an excuse to get rid of me because, you know, I was going to beat them."
Daniel made his Biggest Loser debut last season as the show's heaviest contestant ever at that time. Weighing in at a whopping 454 pounds, the 20-year-old lost 60 pounds before being voted off. But that didn't stop him. He was given a second chance and invited back this season to "finish what he started." After getting the boot for a second time, Daniel said he now weighs 239 pounds.
They may have lost on the show, but they won each others hearts in the process. "I fell in love with my best friend," said Rebecca.
