You may not recognize the gentleman to the left and I may get my butt kicked for posting this pic but that's NBC's Biggest Loser Season 12 winner and native to Kennewick, John Rhode.













John stopped by the 97 Rock studios in Pasco Friday afternoon to talk weight loss, golf and keeping up with other Biggest Loser contestants.

John grew up in Kennewick and as you can see by the picture above he was even a track stud for Kennewick High. Weighing in at 285lbs. and standing 6 feet tall as a freshman the man truly stood out in school. After losing 220lbs. at the Biggest Loser Ranch the man still stands tall and is a truely nice guy. Here's a man that loves this area and still considers this place home.

Check out the full interview with Focker:

John is in town playing in the Ed Troxel charity golf tournament this weekend at Canyon Lakes Golf Course and said there's 3 people he would take a bullet for and Ed Troxel was 2 of those people. That's how much Mr. Troxel meant to John.


Check out the video below of John right after being crowned the Biggest Loser of Season 12.
