We don’t know for sure if Rebecca Meyer‘s mother ever told her that any boy would be lucky to have her and if she’d just lose a hundred or so pounds she’d be sure to snag one. After all, she has such a pretty face.
Yet that’s what happened. ]]>“The Biggest Loser” on Tuesday night, the 25-year-old nanny trucked on over to “The Jay Leno Show” and spilled that in addition to getting healthy she got herself a man — in the form of fellow contestant Daniel Wright.
“Daniel was my best friend, is my best friend and leaving the show we talked for like five, six-hour conversations and then, you know, he told me he had feelings,” Meyer told Leno.
This was Wright’s second time on the show. He was last season’s heaviest contestant, going from 454 to 312 lbs. Since Season 8 was all about “second chances” he got an opportunity to come back and lose another 35 lbs. before being eliminated last week.
“Daniel and I have gone through the same thing,” Meyer says. “I mean, he’s gone through an even more intense version of it and I fell in love with my best friend.”
We’re not saying these crazy kids can’t make a go of it. After all, Suzy Preston and Matt Hoover from Season 2 got married and had a couple of kids.
Still, it’s kind of like A.A. They should probably wait at least a year on their own as their new selves before getting involved with another person.
Then again, Meyer is 25 to Wright’s tender young 20. Pounce like the jungle cat you are, Rebecca. Time’s a-wastin’.
