The kids from “The Biggest Loser” Season 14 are getting lots of attention, and it’s easy to see why when you meet a witty eighth grader, who goes by the name of “Biingo.”
Biingo — aka Noah Gray — is 13-years-old, and hails from Maryland. Through his “Biggest Loser” audition tape, we get to see a more personal side of the lovable teen.
“One of my motivations for losing the weight would be to be able to actually play sports,” says Biingo in the video he sent in to NBC. “Baseball — that’s my passion; I love it. And running around the bases, it tires me out just from going from first to second.”
Biingo talks about his obsession with cheesecake and ice cream, and shows off his secret food-stash behind the bed. He also reveals another reason he wants to lose weight is so he doesn’t stand out among his peers. “I want friends that won’t call me ‘tubby’ or anything like that. I just want to be able to be a normal kid, that’s a normal weight, and doesn’t get made fun of.”
Anyone who watched the “Biggest Loser” two-part season premiere knows Biingo has a super star personality. Here’s hoping his determination helps him accomplish his goals.
