Nearly 200 pounds lighter than when we first met him, Patrick House was named The Biggest Loser last night.
The unemployed former salesman - a resident of Vicksburg, Mississippi and collegiate football player - lost 45.25 percent of his body weight from six months ago, weighing in on the finale at 219 pounds.
House earned $250,000 for this amazing accomplishment, telling host Alison Sweeney: "2010 was a rough year for me. Winning this gives me freedom."
The 28-year old reality champ has already been offered a job at South Carolina's Mindstream Academy, a school that specializes in helping overweight teens. Congratulations are very much in order all around.
