Biggest Loser’s Sam: How I Proposed to Castmate Stephanie

When former Biggest Loser contestant Sam Poueu wanted to propose to fellow contestant Stephanie Anderson, he knew just where to do it.

"I wanted to go back to the ranch, because that's where it all started," the hiking guide and trainer, 25, tells of asking Anderson to be his wife Oct. 4 in the NBC show's gym. The pair met and fell in love while filming season 9 in 2009.

The duo, who collectively lost 241 pounds on the show, say they'd love to invite their Biggest Loser family to share in their special day.

"They know what we've been through," radio sales exec Anderson, 30, tells Us. "We'd like to have Jillian [Michaels], Bob [Harper] and Ali [Sweeney] there."

Poueu's partner on the series, his cousin Koli Palu, will also play an integral role as a groomsman. Says Poueu: "My brother Kale will be my best man, but Koli will be in my lineup. He will stand with me as I breathe slowly!"
