Danny was overweight most of his life. There was a time in high school when he lost 75 pounds, but after a few years in college his weight steadily increased to a life-threatening 450 pounds.
Danny coached his son's football team and desired to be able to do more with his young, energetic children. Danny is concerned his daughter is following in his footsteps and is beginning to struggle with her weight. His son would love to go camping and hunting with him, but his weight made those things virtually impossible.
Danny wanted to win The Biggest Loser to save him from this unhealthy lifestyle. He did not want to leave his wife and children early in life. Danny is an accomplished musician, having played in Donny Osmond's band. He wants to have a long and healthy life playing music and enjoying his family.
Since coming to The Biggest Loser ranch, Danny has lost over an astounding 240 pounds, but more importantly he's learned the importance of incorporating exercise with good, healthy, wholesome foods into his diet. It's no wonder Danny is the winner of NBC's season eight's The Biggest Loser and The Biggest Loser Ever!
Since winning The Biggest Loser, Danny has appeared on Good Morning America, The Jay Leno Show, and many other television, radio and print media.
