It seems that two contestants have found love on the ranch. The Purple Team’s Stephanie and Gray Team’s Sam confirm they’re dating and share the sweet details of their romance…

It was almost love at first sight for Stephanie and Sam on NBC‘s The Biggest Loser. “Stephanie first caught my eye when we were in finals week,” Sam says, referring to the days leading up to the start of the competition. “He did introduce himself to me and my mom on the first day when we went to the ranch. I remember thinking he was very cute and there was some flirting,” Stephanie says.

Stephanie says she was definitely attracted to Sam early on, both physically and emotionally.. “To see someone who genuinely is confident, it was just very attractive. His family values are huge. He’s very respectful and communicative, which is hard to find in any man. He’s patient, compassionate, handsome. Overall, he was such a wonderful man that I thought, ‘I really want to see what this is about,’” she says. Sam echoes her sentiment saying, “Steph’s beautiful, regardless of whether she’s overweight. I had to get to know her. The more I got to know, the more I found things about her that I really enjoyed.”

As the two continued to work towards their weight loss goals on NBC‘s The Biggest Loser, the relationship slowly evolved from something sweet and innocent to something much more serious and unique. Sam says, “It slowly moved its way into hand-holding. It was very elementary-style, especially in this environment. I at least wanted to give her a kiss goodnight and make that first move. And I got denied!” Stephanie says she was just nervous but immediately regretted not kissing him. “ I was really upset. The next day we went for a hike and I thought, ‘I’ve got to be the one to initiate now.’ So officially, our first kiss was me kissing him. That was week three,” she says. “I think we have a mutual respect and love for each other that is unique. I never expected to find love while working on me. But Sam is like no one I’ve ever met. He brings out the best in me.”

By week four or five, even NBC‘s The Biggest Loser trainers, Bob and Jillian, knew about the romance. . “They did a lot of teasing. They love and adore Sam, and I think they love and adore me more, so they’re just excited for us,” Stephanie says. As they should be. The couple’s relationship is still going strong and the pair are planning a future together. “I’m looking forward to finding a career in Los Angeles. I’m looking forward to life after The Biggest Loser with Stephanie,” Sam says. “Honestly, it feels like there’s so much promise in our future.”
