The Biggest Loser... the Expo on Friday night, we were walking, minding our own business then I looked up and said, "I think that's the guy from the Biggest Loser." Beth looks and says, "Yeah, I recognize the shirt." All we could see was the back of his plain green shirt, no words. Beth and I started weaving in and out (the theme for the weekend apparently!) until we could see the front of his shirt and his face.

Beth touched his arm, "Excuse me? Are you from the Biggest Loser?" He nodded and said, "Yep! That's the only place you can get this shirt!" I guess you can't buy the team colors with the logo on it. We were SO starstruck and freaking out. Matt was rolling his eyes at us as we took a picture. Apparently, we were either the only ones that recognized him (except one lady who asked for his autograph) or no one else was as excited to meet him as us because really no one else stopped him.

He was so cool as we chatted with him, just very down to Earth asking what corrals we were in and our goals and telling us about the people walking with him. Beth went on and on about what an inspiration he was and he was like, "Good, that's what we like to hear." Anyways, it was a very cool experience if you can't tell by the huge smiles on our face:
As we got in the car to head back to Beth's granny's, (Beth is the super skinny one in the light blue), Beth comments, "He probably thought I was either a big liar or used to be really fat." We all agreed, we'd go with he thought she used to be fat. LOL!
