A Chicago attorney is among the 15 contestants competing to lose the most weight on the current season of NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
Bobby Saleem is 28 and weighs 358 pounds — a lifetime high for him. In the video above, he talks about how his “aha moment” came when he ripped the inseam of his suit pants just before needing to appear in court. “I want to look good in a suit when I go to court,” he says.
The show, in its 15th season, follows overweight contestants through a grueling exercise regime to see who can lose the most weight. Another contestant on the current season is from Plainfield, IL.
The current season premiered Oct. 8. It airs at 7 p.m. CST on Tuesdays.
