Twin Cities station manager wants to be Biggest Loser


Elmwood (St. Louis Park) Station Manager O’Neal Hampton, Jr. and his daughter, SunShine Hampton made their television debut last night on Season 9 of the popular NBC reality show The Biggest Loser: Couples.

O’Neal and SunShine are competing with 10 other overweight couples to achieve the greatest percentage of weight lost during the course of the show.

In their first physical challenge, the Hamptons competed to outpedal other teams, including identical twins who collectively weigh nearly 1,000 pounds. But the main focus of the show is not the contest itself, as competitors receive the help of physical trainers, nutritionists and other medical personnel to achieve their weight loss goals and build a new, healthier lifestyle.

It's great that the Hampton's are doing this together; support from your family is so important when trying to lose weight. I've struggled with my weight all my life and I'll be rooting for them. They'll be an inspiration for us all to be adopt healthier lifestyles.
