Newcastle's Jodie Pestell, a contestant on The Biggest Loser Families, had a transformational makeover on the Ten Network reality program on Sunday night, but it was her boyfriend's marriage proposal that stole the show.
When Jodie began the show with her father Terry and sisters Melissa and Ali they had a combined weight 560kg.
Jodie's boyfriend of four years, Anthony, had made no secret of his desire to make Jodie his wife, buying an engagement ring a year ago. But Jodie did not want to get married until she felt better about herself.
After seeing the happy, confident new Jodie, Anthony was inspired to drop to one knee, telling his girlfriend: “You look so beautiful. I’m proud of you. I love you. We’ve been together four years. It’s been the best four years of my life and you make me really happy. Will you marry me?”
An ecstatic Jodie replied: “Oh my God! Yes, I’ll marry you!”
Jodie explained: “Anthony was waiting for the right time to propose. And he chose Makeover! I’m getting married!”
