‘Loser’ Attracts Young Men

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Losing a few dozen pounds gains you a lot of male followers.

That’s what Maria Ventrella discovered after competing on The Biggest Loser: Couples.

Though she was dropped from the show this past Tuesday (Jan. 19), the 51-year-old, who teamed up with her son to compete, now has a fleet of young men hanging out with her at the gym.

She explains, “My son’s friends help me train. It’s weird because here’s this older lady at the gym with all these young guys. It’s really fun!”

Since returning from the show, Ventrella has truly worked her butt off, losing more than 50 pounds.

She laughs, “Everyone is saying, ‘You lost your butt. Where’s your butt?’ I’m like, ‘It’s gone and it’s great.’”

Ventrella already sees and feels the difference in her body and is glad she no longer has to shop at plus size stores.

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
