`Loser' Avoids Gaining Sympathy Weight

Thursday, February 4, 2010 17:20 GMT

ORLANDO, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One reality TV “loser” is hoping his pregnant wife doesn’t make him fat.

Biggest Loser: Couples contestant John Crutchfield, who was booted from the show this past Tuesday (Feb. 2), doesn’t want history to repeat itself.

After gaining a whopping 200 pounds years ago when his wife got pregnant with their first child, he’s avoiding falling victim to the cravings now that they’re expecting another baby.

He says, “We eat healthier, but she gets those cravings for certain things like chocolate milk. But I’m doing really well this time. I stay away from the foods she eats.”

Crutchfield isn’t imposing his healthier habits on his family.

In fact, he likes the challenge of seeing them eat whatever they want while he sticks to his strict diet.

The task will be especially tough on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 7), since Crutchfield’s “biggest weaknesses” are chicken wings.

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
