CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Biggest Loser: Couples winner is using his victory to trim all sorts of fat from his life.

Chicago resident Michael Ventrella enrolled in the weight-loss competition at a staggering 526 pounds, making him the heaviest contestant in the show’s history.

Through hard work and determination, the newly buff and lean Ventrella won the entire thing this past Tuesday (May 25), dropping an amazing 264 pounds.

However, Ventrella isn’t just losing weight around his waistline.

He plans on using his $250,000 prize to pay off his debt because “debt weighs you down along with fat on your body.”

Ventrella adds: “I’m really cleaning up my life right now. I’ve surpassed my wildest dreams.”

Meanwhile, although his love life is currently “non- existent,” Ventrella isn’t too upset about it because he has a lot on his plate at the moment.

Once he reaches his goal weight, the bonafide loser plans to occasionally reward himself with some greasy Chicago food.
