‘Biggest Loser’ divorce: Sam Poueu, Stephanie Anderson split up
The “Biggest Loser” wedding that looked on track to yield a “Biggest Loser” baby has reportedly taken an unfortunate turn — toward the first “Biggest Loser” divorce.
Sam Poueu and Stephanie Anderson, who married in May 2012 after meeting while taping the ninth season of the weight-loss competition, have separated and will file for divorce, her rep told Us Weekly on Wednesday.
“It is with great sadness that my marriage to Sam Poueu is ending,” Anderson told the mag.
Making things even more sad: Anderson is seven months pregnant with the couple’s first child, a baby boy due in July.
The couple, who lost a combined total of almost 250 pounds in the season that hit the air in January 2010, went through difficult times even before they tied the knot. In 2011, Poueu suffered a four-story fall off a friend’s roof deck and went through nine months of rehab, according to People. Anderson was his caregiver through his recovery.
[For the Record, 8:55 a.m. PDT May 9: An earlier version of this post stated that San Poueu’s and Stephanie Anderson’s child would be the first “Biggest Loser” baby. Matt Hoover and Suzy Preston, who met in Season 2 and married in 2006, have two children.]
