MANILA, Philippines - The very first “Pinoy Biggest Loser” will be named on October 8 at the Ynares Stadium in Pasig.

"The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition" hosted by Megastar Sharon Cuneta is set to hold its final episode, dubbed "Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Wellness Fair and Grand Finale" on Saturday.

A final weigh-in will determine who among Angela, Art, Hazel, Larry and Raffy will assume the title along with a P1 million cash prize, a newly furnished DCMI Homes condominium, a Vespa scooter, a 40-inch Sony Bravia Internet TV, Whirlpool appliances and a lifetime gym membership with Fitness First.

As for the second placer, a P500,000 cash, a Vespa scooter, Whirlpool appliances and one year Fitness First membership prizes await.

Meanwhile, the third placer will be able to take home P300,000 cash, a Vespa scooter, Fujidenzo Home Appliances, and one-year Fitness First membership.

In a span of 4 months, trainers Chinggay Andrada and Jim Saret have helped the “Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” contestants burn extra pounds and stay fit for the challenges given by game master Derek Ramsay.

For this, Art has expressed his gratefulness. He said, "All these years, I have carried so much burden, pain, humiliation, anger, and sadness. So, every lost pound was like an excess baggage thrown away and a symbolism of the new me."

Meanwhile, Hazel expressed his thankfulness for having this opportunity which "unraveled the Hazel that has long been suppressed."

Other than the Fab Five, eliminated contestants Alan, Andy, Eboy, Edden, Eric, JM, Joy, Leigh, Ryan, and Winwin will also take part in the grand finale episode of the “Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition.”

They will be having their own weigh-in round, and the one who will lose the highest percentage of their initial weight will be proclaimed the “At-Home Winner” and will get P200,000 cash prize and one year Fitness First membership.
