Here’s a sneak peek at the inspiring, and heart-felt stories of this season’s cast. In the Season 4 premiere of Extreme Wight Loss Challenge, “Ty and Charita” (Oklahoma City, OK; Colorado Springs, CO) reveal two very different – but equally compelling – stories of struggle. However, for the first time in the series’ history, only one will succeed at shedding hundreds of pounds, while the other is the first ever to quit Chris’ program!
Charita is a 32-year-old hairstylist who stands 5’6” and weighs 310 lbs. Raised in a strict, religious family, she turned to food to cope with a bad decision she made at 19. She works two jobs, struggling to support her husband and three sons.
19-year-old Ty is a 6’4”, 480-pound baseball phenom who’s struggled with his weight since he was 10. Then already over 300 pounds, Ty was nearly twice the size of others on his baseball team. Baseball agents and coaches have informed him that the only thing standing between him and a professional contract is his weight.
Coached by Chris and Heidi, Ty and Charita’s transformations will be filled with both turbulent moments and amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Ty will get a chance to work out with Major League Baseball All-Star Josh Hamilton (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), who is one of his heroes. Charita will start a new career as a Zumba instructor, and get the chance to spend time with her favorite R&B group T.G.T. (Tyrese, Ginuwine & Tank). She also gets to meet with celebrity chef Rocco Dispirito to help show her “How To Lose A Pound A Day.”
Everything changes when Chris and Heidi uncover surprising information about one of the two participants. Ultimately, one of them will quit, unable to handle the pressure. The transormations are life-changing, and the stories will move you to tears. Don’t miss the Season Premeire of “Extreme Weight Loss” on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 on WOTV 4.
