    Don't know where else to post this: Rulon Gardner to be on "Biggest Loser"

    http://www.suite101.com/content/olym...son-11-a320756

    Man, 474. What's lame is you KNOW Bob and Jillian are going to take credit for they physique they unveil under Gardner.

    I'm still going to watch, and I hope he goes the distance. I was curious what happened to him after his 1 MMA fight.

    Wow. He survived death three times. I mean, no wonder he gained weight. Three scrapes of death would make me anxious too.

    Anyone know what he looks like too?

        He really should just get back into wrestling/mma.

          The fellow has a lot to his credit. Best wishes to him.

            I wonder how low he can go? He was always a big dude.

              His competition weight was around 265 I think. I bet he can get down below 320 from 474.

                It really isn't fair when you think about it.

                He'll just cut some weight before every weigh-in on the show and never be voted off.
                He's a former Olympic wrestler, I can't think of anyone who would know how to manage his weight at every given moment than him.

                Anyway, hope he does well, might actually watch this season, the gf likes the show, I might take a look.

                  Wow 474!
                  Wonder if he can sauna off some weight right before weigh ins, I'm sure he's got some experience with that

                    If he doesn't win this it's gonna be a disgrace.

                      I don't really think he can win. He has too much muscle mass. This show doesn't calculate body fat %. It just looks at actual weight lost. Some of the people on the show have managed to lost over 230lbs

                        Who wants to tell the 400+lb guy who beat Alexander Karelin that he's a loser?

                          Hmmm. Good point.

                          Also, I didn't take into account the simple greed factor. Some people will do anything for the $$$$$

                            Could you imagine Bob doing this to Rulan?

                            It would be like "Rulan... Shut the F (splat and dead)"

                              He looks (to me) pretty small for 474. Must be a ton of muscle underneath that fat. If he's still heavily muscled so many years after retiring he's gonna have a hard time losing much.
