Biggest Loser presents their five finalist for October 8 finale

THE FIVE FINALISTS of “The Biggest Loser”, now called The Fab Five, was presented by ABS-CBN to the press last Tuesday: Angela, Art, Hazel, Larry and Raffy. Other eliminated contestants were also there to keep them company: lan, Andy, Eboy, Edden, Eric, Joy, Leigh, Winwin and Ryan. We asked them all who they think would win and two names emerged: Larry (the former cop who was fired because he’s too overweight) and Raffy (the good-looking youngest guy who has a facial tic with uncontrollable twitching of his eyebrows said to be inherited from his dad and granddad).

Why them? Here are the answers:

Larry – “Sobrang sipag at tiyaga niya sa workout. Nagre-rest na kami o kumakain, siya, workout pa rin.”

Raffy – “He’s like our little brother. He’s the most deserving kasi he needs the money for his family.”

What will Larry and Raffy do if they’d indeed win? “I will use the money for the education of my children,” says Larry. “I will use part of it for a small business, kahit food cart lang,” says Raffy. “Tapos dadalhin ko yung kapatid ko sa Hongkong Disneyland.”

Raffy has found his ladylove in the show: the lovely Hazel. They’re now considered the Love Team of “Biggest Loser”.

How did they fall in love with each other? Raffy: “First time I saw her, ang ganda niya kahit mataba siya. Nagtaka ako dahil sabi niya, no boyfriend since birth siya e maganda naman siya.” Hazel: “First time ko naman siyang nakita, I found him agad as charming. Kahit chubby siya, malakas pa rin ang charisma niya.”

Our guess is that ABS-CBN will build them up as the network’s newest love team since they both look good enough to be artistas. The finale will be held at Ynares Stadium on October 8. The winner gets P1 million cash, a condo unit from DCMI Homes, a Vespa scooter, Whirlpool appliances, one year membership with Fitness First. Second place gets P500,000, third place gets P300,000 and they both get scooters and appliances also. “Biggest Loser” is aired weeknights after “Guns and Roses”.
