David Gurnani is the Biggest Loser

And David Gurnani is very happy about it. The Indonesian David Gurnani sheds 83kg to walk away with $139,000 and a car to win the title in The Biggest Loser Asia TV reality show!

THE Biggest Loser Asia reality show ended on Tuesday with Indonesia's David Gurnani taking the top prize after losing 83kg.

Weighing in at 74kg, the 1.82m 25-year-old walked away with US$100,000 (S$139,000) and a Renault car.

'I was not sure that I would win, but I knew that I had given everything that I could, so I really thank God for everything,' he tells Life! in a telephone interview from Indonesia two days ago.

The 16 contestants of the weight-loss reality show spent 13 weeks at a villa in A'Famosa Resort in Malacca. There, they were subject to a gruelling exercise regime and had to give up any kind of unhealthy food. Then, they returned home for two months to continue their weight loss before the final weigh-in on Tuesday.

'We had cereal for breakfast and tuna sandwiches for lunch, it was a shock for me,' says Gurnani. 'I would never eat WeetBix cereal at home, it's tasteless. And I wanted noodles or rice for lunch.'

But he slowly got used to the regime, and by the end of the stay-in segment of the reality show, he lost 55kg.

From Straits Times, "Biggest Loser is big winner".
