    RICHARD HATCH


    Hometown: Newport, RI


    Occupation: Television personality


    Richard Hatch is best known for winning $1 million and the first season of the long-running reality series “Survivor” in 2000 and appearing on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2011. He returned to “Survivor” in 2004 for “Survivor: All Stars,” penned a book entitled “101 Survival Secrets” and also appeared on “Dog Eat Dog,” “The Weakest Link,” “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” “Battle of the Network Reality Stars” and “Family Feud.” Overweight his whole life, Richard says his biggest motivation for going on ‘The Biggest Loser’ is his “amazing and fit husband, Emiliano.” The Newport, R.I., native and the oldest of four children says childhood abuses and a lack of expressed love negatively affected his self-esteem, leading to weight gain.  Richard spent five years in the Army and attended the United States Military Academy at West Point. He then went on to earn a degree in applied behavioral sciences and management from National Louis University and received his master’s degree in education and counseling from Providence College. Prior to his “Survivor” appearance, Richard spent 15 years as a corporate trainer and motivational speaker. Now 314 pounds and suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol and pre-diabetes, the 54-year-old father of three says, “I look forward to living less stressfully after losing the weight.”

    The Biggest Loser!

    in Entertainment


    Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley The Total Tutor interviews not ONE, but TWO Finalists of the the "Biggest Loser" Season 13-Mark Cornelison, and Buddy Shuh!

     

    BUDDY SHUH was born on an Army base in Landstuhl, Germany and raised in Michigan, Ohio and Florida with his four siblings. In high school, Buddy was captain of both his football and wrestling teams and was voted "most athletic" his senior year. While attending Ohio State University, he played football for a while, and he later received a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Eastern Michigan University. When Buddy stopped playing sports, he stopped exercising, and that, coupled with a poor diet, led to his weight gain. 

     

    MARK CORNELISON wanted to go on The Biggest Loser because he's ready to make the life changes necessary to get healthy and hopes to give his "smokin' hot wife a smokin' hot husband!" He was born in San Angelo, Texas and raised in Abilene with his older sister, who has Down syndrome. He received a marketing degree from the University of North Texas, and he says a poor diet and lack of exercise led him to start gaining weight in high school. Now 43 years old and 291 pounds, Mark suffers from high blood pressure, high cholesterol and acid reflux.

    NFL Star Biggest Loser Contestant Scott Mitchell

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Scott Mitchell.


    Scott Mitchell was a standout athlete growing up, excelling in football and setting the course for his impressive career in the NFL. He was born in Salt Lake City and grew up in Springville, Utah with three older sisters. After attending the University of Utah, Mitchell played 12 seasons in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. He was drafted in the fourth round by the Dolphins and backed up Pittsburgh-born Hall of Famer Dan Marino. In 2010, Mitchell was inducted into the University of Utah Hall of Fame.


    Mitchell's biggest motivation for going on the show THE BIGGEST LOSER was seeing his dad die of obesity-related causes early this year, causing personal concerns that he could be headed down the same path if he did not choose to change his lifestyle.  At 46 years old and 366 pounds, Mitchell has sleep apnea and high blood pressure. Weight has been an issue for Scott since he was about 35, mainly due to a busy life and poor diet. As a devoted and loving father, and with five kids ranging in age from 11 to 21, he wants to be sure he will be there for his family, a decision which made him ready to embrace a healthy lifestyle. When he loses the weight, Mitchell says he wants to look amazing in clothes and be physically active.

    NBC's Biggest Loser Winner of Season 17 ROBERTO HERNANDEZ

    in Entertainment

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview NBC's Biggest Loser Finale Winner Season 17  ROBERTO HERNANDEZ.


    ROBERTO HERNANDEZ


    Hometown: Burbank, IL


    Occupation: Physical/health/driver’s education teacher


    Roberto Hernandez was born and raised in Cicero, Ill., growing up with his twin brother and teammate, Luis, and two older brothers. Though he has been overweight his whole life, he was active in sports, playing football for four years in high school, two years in college and three years on a semi-pro football team.  He and his twin were the first in their family to attend college. Roberto got his undergraduate degree in exercise science at Milliken University and then studied school administration in graduate school at Governor State University. “I have wanted to get healthy every day of my life,” he says, “but it never seemed reachable.” Now he’s ready to lose weight for his family and for his career since it is difficult as a PE teacher to encourage his students to be fit and active when he is not a healthy role model. The husband and father of three boys is 36 years old, 348 pounds and suffering from high cholesterol and hypertension. Once he loses the weight, Roberto looks forward to training for an Iron Man competition, running a marathon and riding a motorcycle without people laughing at him.

    Pete Thomas of Biggest Loser - Sticking to Your Fitness Goals

    in Fitness

    Sharon McRill, Owner of The Betty Brigade, will be talking with Pete Thomas from The Biggest Loser about sticking to your fitness goals.


    In November 2005, Pete Thomas walked away from the finale of NBC’s The Biggest Loser a winner - and a loser. He won $100,000 for losing the most weight of all the contestants that season. What he lostwas 185 pounds in only nine short months – most of which he lost at home after being “voted off” by the other contestants.


    At his largest, Thomas tipped the scales at over 416lbs. As a child, Pete never learned about nutrition and exercise due to his transient lifestyle – a result of his mother’s serious mental illness. As a young child, he was left alone or with his younger sister— forced to find food wherever he could. Both Pete and his sister were put into foster care.
