Andrew's lost and gained so much

BACK home in Torquay last night a tasty grilled chicken and salad dish was on the menu for Andrew Miles.

Battered chicken alfredo is a thing of the past for the 23-year-old from Hervey Bay who has shed almost 40kg since stepping into the Biggest Loser reality show.

Viewers of the popular Channel 10 program last night saw the Fraser Coast contestant removed from the house.

His brother Nathan remains inside and in with a chance of overall victory.

“I am optimistic that he will do very well,” Andrew said of his prospects. For his own part he is more than satisfied with his effort on the show.

“I was happy because I had accomplished everything I had aimed to achieve.

“I was ecstatic (when voted out) because I would see my family again. I knew I'd miss them when I went in but I never thought I'd miss them that much. I had a tremendous amount of guilt beginning to well up inside.”

Partner Kylie and children Emily, 5, and Ella, 2, were delighted to have Andrew home again after a stint which had its moments of cabin fever.

“It does get tedious because you are basically locked up. You train for six to eight hours a day.”

Andrew has now reduced his training regime to about four hours a day with a 35km bike ride only a starter yesterday morning.

“With the training the endorphins are running all the time so I'm over the moon. Hopefully I'm not a pain to be around.

“I know it sounds corny but it was a life-changing experience.”

His dream of becoming a police officer is a realistic step closer but his 15 minutes will be just that.

“I don't see myself as much of a TV star. I know it's not going to last forever so I am going to enjoy it while I can.”
