Reality Reject Drops Polynesian Pounds

MESA, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being Polynesian no longer means being plump for one reality reject.

Passing up a plate of yummy food was just not something reality contestant Sione Fa was used to doing, but the portly Polynesian managed to do just that while competing on The Biggest Loser: Couples.

Fa, who was voted off the weight loss show this past Tuesday (Apr. 7), says, “When we get together as a family, we don’t count calories. We just pile the plate as high as we can and go at it. Weight is a big issue in my culture, but I’m working to change that.”

Competing on the show has led Fa to pursue a career as a trainer, and he plans on taking the lessons he learned from his tough Biggest Loser trainers, and adding his own spin to workouts.

He says, “I had the idea to do a Polynesian workout where I’d incorporate the dances. I would love to share my culture with others that way.”

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
