Season nine contestant of The Biggest Loser, Sam Poueu was injured back in September, as he attempted to climb down a fire escape and fell to the ground instead. Sam was in critical condition for weeks, after suffering internal injuries to his kidney, lungs, liver, ribs, pelvis, leg, ankle, and the most severe – brain injuries. Sam is doing much better now, as he and Stephanie Anderson recently spoke to US Magazine about the traumatic event, and their upcoming wedding!
Speaking to US Magazine, Sam Poueu revealed that he remembers going to a birthday bash on the night of the accident, but then added: “Sometimes I try to remember the accident. But every time I go there, it gets dark and kind of eerie. I’d rather let it be and live.” His fiancee, and fellow contestant on The Biggest Loser, Stephanie Anderson revealed that when Sam fell that scary evening, his entire brain shifted, and: “He hemorrhaged and had a stroke.”
Sam Poueu has spent months making progress and trying to return to normal, and the happy couple are anxiously awaiting their wedding this spring. In the video interview, Stephanie reveals that she would have married Sam this spring whether he was in a wheelchair or not – now that is true love!
