Jesse Wornum: Biggest Loser 11 Contestant

Jesse Wornum was eliminated from Biggest Loser in week eight, a premeditated move he made to protect the other young people on his team, as well as his son Arthur. In addition to the 52 pounds he lost on the ranch, he’s lost 17 more at home. Arthur is no longer taking medication, something he says “normal people” do. “I feel good!” he exclaims about his renewed health.

“What the ranch provides that you can’t get out here is total dedication to the cause,” says Jesse about his time on Biggest Loser, which is an isolated and secluded experience. It also provided an opportunity for the already close father and son to reconnect, a relationship he says is much stronger today.
