Matt and Suzy get engaged on The Today Show

The Biggest Loser 2 produced a lot of weight loss—and a relationship. This morning, the couple that met on the show, Matt Hoover and Suzy Preston, got engaged on national television.

On The Today Show, Matt said, “Suzy has no idea our relationship is about to get a little closer, I hope. I have gone through a lot of changes in the past year. You have seen me at my worst. … I want to keep changing, but I want you to be by my side. I had this made for you. I’d like to ask you to be my wife!”

Suzy, crying, said yes. Suzy tells People, “I saw him at his worst, absolutely. And he saw me at my worst. He saw me sweating and passing gas.” People reports that Matt and Suzy’s “romance began secretly in the show’s eighth week with long, chatty walks.”

As to their impending wedding, Matt told the magazine that Suzy will likely plan it, but he wants them to “get married in church. But other than that, we don’t have anything definite in mind. It could be big or small, in Seattle area or in Hawaii. I’ll leave all that up to Suzy.”
