MINNEAPOLIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Second chances don’t come around often, so one former fatty is taking full advantage of the ones he gets.

After damaging his body with poor eating habits, O’Neal Hampton decided to change his life by signing up for The Biggest Loser: Couples.

So far the fan favorite, who was eliminated this past Tuesday (Apr. 27), has lost 124 pounds.

This isn’t the first time Hampton has gotten a second chance.

Back in college, he turned down a girl who asked him to the Sadie Hawkins dance because he was “the biggest football star on campus” and thought he could do better.

When he was left all alone on the night of the dance, that girl came knocking on his door and gave him sass about blowing her off.

She gave him another shot though, and the two have been married ever since.

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
