At the finals night of the reality show, “The Biggest Loser: Pinoy Edition”, the former policeman, Larry Martin, prevailed to be the first ever Pinoy Biggest Loser. He lost a pound percentage of 39.61% from his last weigh in. He won one million pesos plus lifetime gym membership, condo unit and appliances.
The finalists who received five hundred thousand pesos each are: Art Mendoza (second placer), Raffy Tan (third), Angela Lupangco (fourth) and Hazel Chua (fifth).
Meanwhile, the Pinoy Biggest Loser “home winner” was Ryan Razon.
The Megastar Sharon Cuneta, who hosted the finals night, said that she was inspired by the contestant’s discipline and determination to lose weight. She said: “They really just renewed my faith in myself. Parang nahiya ako sa sarili ko. Sa awa ng Diyos, nasurpresa nang konti ang audience ko tonight.”
Furthermore, the Philippine National Police Chief Nicanor Bartolome expressed the intentions of having Larry back in service during an interview with ABS-CBN. According to him, Larry would be a good role model to his fellow policemen by assigning him in the physical fitness unit.
