The Biggest Loser on NBC is known for weight loss,so why on earth would a contestant sell a 1.5 lb burger? It’s true, one of the contestants from this season is selling 1.5 lb burgers – so who is it and why? Keep reading for all the details!
That’s right The Biggest Loser fans, one of current season eleven contestants has been selling 1.5 lb burgers – not quite the inspiration you would expect out of someone trying to lose weight. So who is it? It’s our Olympic Gold Medalist Rulon Gardner who is selling a 1.5 pound hamburger at his Wyoming restaurant, while he is busy competing on the show. “The mighty Rulon Burger” at Rulon Gardner’s Burger Barn restaurant is so big it’s molded in a pizza pan and comes on a bun with all the toppings.
So why would he sell such an enormous burger? Apparently, Rulon has a challenge for all newcomers to his restaurant – if you can finish off the burger plus a basket of fries and a 44 ounce drink in 20 minutes, you will receive a signed Rulon Gardner Olympic Champion T-shirt and get your name on Rulon’s Wall of Fame. Interesting, but I have to wonder if he will continue to sell this burger after he leaved The Biggest Loser ranch, or if he will revamp his menu into a healthier menu for his patrons? We’ll just have to wait and see, but in the meantime, if you are in the area you may want to stop in and try his burger…if you are not trying to lose weight that is!
Tune in Tuesday at 8 pm EST for a brand new episode of The Biggest Loser on NBC!
