Heaviest Contestant Loses Chance to Become 1st Pinoy Biggest Loser

Eboy Bautista, one of the world’s heaviest Biggest Loser contestants in history, was eliminated Monday (August 1) from the “Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition.”

He was voted out by fellow Bigating Pinoys in the elimination ceremony after falling under the yellow line with former teammate Winwin.

Obviously bothered by an injury he got during the last challenge, the 33-year-old restaurant owner only managed to sweat out four pounds or 1.03 percent of his previous weight in his last weigh-in. He lost a total of 97 lbs. in his stay in the camp.

Although disappointed with his early finish in the competition, Eboy said he remains positive that he will be down to his ideal weight sooner or later.

“There was still so much to learn in the camp. But aside from getting ousted, I have no regrets. I had a total experience. From all the body aches to my hand accident, I wouldn’t trade those moments for anything,” he said.

Right now he is focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and even encouraging his friends and family to also have one. He wants to prove that nothing is impossible even with overweight people like him.

“I learned from Art that you can do things, especially exercise, if you just stop thinking and actually stand up and do it. Like our trainer Chinggay said, never say you can’t until you try. You are stronger that you think you are,” shared the camp’s resident funnyman.

As for his bet to win the title, Eboy said anyone has a fight to become the first Pinoy Biggest Loser. “After Alan left, I really felt I would be the one. Now, looking at those who were left, anyone can be the Biggest Loser,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the remaining Bigating Pinoy Andy, Angela, Art, Hazel, Larry, Leigh, Raffy, Ryan, and Winwin are now experiencing a different kind of training after being brought to a military camp.

There they get a taste of what Marines undergo to remain fit and discipline such as getting up and sleeping early, taking a bath in 100 counts, eating “Marine-style” and also rappelling.

From the get-go, some of them expressed resentment on the manner they are being treated by their “trainer” for the week, Staff Sgt. Pasco. According to Art, who experienced violence growing up, he doesn’t like being shouted and ordered upon. Larry, on the other hand, was excited to try on the drills he used to do as a former policeman.
