LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Losing weight suits one formerly flabby fella just fine.

After months of hard work on The Biggest Loser: Couples, ousted contestant Sam Poueu is making his fashion dreams come true.

The 24-year-old, who was eliminated from the competition this past Tuesday (May 4), has always been a clotheshorse, but his size never allowed him to rock the styles he’d admire in GQ magazine.

Poueu used to travel 45 minutes from home to the nearest big and tall shop to find clothes that would fit.

Now that he’s “the buffest loser,” however, he can buy the “daring and edgy threads” he’s always wanted.

He’s saving his most exciting purchase for when he really cuts the fat.

Says Poueu: “I’ve never worn a suit before. I’m still working on getting the body for that because I want a European cut. I can’t wait. I’ll probably be bawling on that day.”

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
