An Interview With ‘The Biggest Loser’ 4 Contestant David Griffin

David “Cowboy” Griffin lost triple digits thanks to “The Biggest Loser”

Continuing my series of interviews with former contestants from “The Biggest Loser” Season 4, I have pleased to welcome David Griffin. Fans of the show will remember him as the “cowboy” who was a member of the Kim Lyons-led Red Team. See what he has to say about her training, what he thought about the show prior to being a contestant, and what his purpose in life is now that he’s shed triple digits.

Here’s a brief snippet:

1. Today we welcome David Griffin from Season 4 of one of my favorite television shows ever–NBC’s weight loss reality series “The Biggest Loser.” David weighed in at 368 pounds when the cameras started rolling and went on to lose a total of 140 pounds through this experience. CONGRATULATIONS David on such a remarkable achievement and I’m very proud of you for making the commitment to improve your health as it is something that will stay with you for the rest of your life. I thought it was interesting that you had never even watched “The Biggest Loser” before you became a contestant. As an obese person, did you feel the show was too personal and embarrassing since you knew you had a problem? Or did you just not care?

Even though at one time I tipped the scales at a little more than 400 pounds, I had never been much for watching television. So it had nothing to so with embarrassment or not caring–I didn’t even know that the show existed.
