Biggest Loser’s Matt and Suzy are dating

The Biggest Loser 2 gave its contestants new, more slender lives, and now it’s given two of the competitors romance.

Winner Matt Hoover and Suzy Preston, who placed third, are officially a couple. Matt tells People magazine, “I think it’s going to be great. She is awesome.”

Suzy said they bonded over their shared experience. “I saw him at his worst, absolutely. And he saw me at my worst. He saw me sweating and passing gas,” she says. Matt agrees, telling the magazine, “We have a lot in common. Going through something like we went through is life-changing. We are not the same people we were before all this and we are both at a point in our lives where we know what it’s like to be fat and miserable — and what it’s like to be happy and healthy.”

People reports that although Matt “lives in Iowa, … he is contemplating a move to be closer to Preston, a hairstylist, in Seattle.”
