This week sees Chris Powell facing his toughest Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition challenge ever when a 26-year-old fast-food addict who weighs 490 lbs. attempts to lose 110 lbs. Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition screens on Thursday, August 25 th at 7:30pm on 3. Wally, a 26-year-old caring husband and loving father, is also a self-admitted fast food addict. Turning to food at an early age to cope with a rough childhood, Wally weighs in at 490 pounds when he meets trainer Chris Powell.
Wally’s weight loss progress appears to be going well, until Chris receives a troubling email that leads to an emotional intervention. Wally’s addiction to food has caused him to spiral downward, and Chris wonders if Wally is beyond the kind of help he can offer.
“He would rather pick an addiction over me, over his family, over his wife, over his daughter. He would rather pick his food over anything,” trainer/transformation specialist Chris Powell says of this week’s contestant, Wally. Worse yet, over the episode Wally will lead Powell to believe he is on track with both his exercises and weight loss routine.
So how will the trainer react to this deception? Find out when Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition continues on Thursday, August 25 th at 7:30pm on 3.
