Since appearing on the 'Biggest Loser', Damien has dropped from wearing a size 9XL to a 3XL.
In a 'make or break' elimination, Damien was eliminated from 'The Biggest Loser' on April 8, 2007. He was eliminated due to a game twist involving choosing food by calorie content. Having chose the highest food, Damien was immediately eliminated.
Damien was the biggest contestant to ever appear on 'The Biggest Loser' [both Australian and US] with a starting weight of 216.3 kilos.
Damien: (on his 'Biggest Loser' experience) It's given me the tools and the knowledge to make sure I never go back to where I came from.
Damien: (on his girlfriend) [She has] the most beautiful heart of any person I've ever met.
Damien: (on being eliminated from the 'Biggest Loser' due to the triathlon ) I feel I achieved the kickstart I needed to get down to my goal weight. I don't expect to be at my goal weight by the finale. If I can get down to 140kg by the finale I'd be ecstatic. I'm 50kg lighter now but I'm still morbidly obese. There's still a long way to go.
Damien: (on 'Biggest Loser' contestant Chris) He's young, he's cocky, very confident, and that rubs people up the wrong way. He's had two massive weight loss weeks, he's got to hit a wall sooner or later. You look at him and see he can't have that much more weight to lose. He eats a very low amount of calories. He got quite sick two weeks ago and everyone could see it coming.
