When married couple Curtis and Mallory Bray applied for The Biggest Loser, they had a tough decision to make—lose weight or lose their health insurance. "I received a letter indicating that I need to be a maximum of 238 pounds in order to be insured," Curtis says. "That's over 150 pounds that I am already over, and if I don't have medical insurance, I fail as a husband. I fail as a father."

At the time, Curtis weighed 381 pounds and Mallory weighed 217 pounds. With three daughters at home, the ranch was the wake-up call the couple needed to get healthy. "We are literally killing ourselves," Curtis said at the ranch. "We can't do this anymore."

Eliminated after only two weeks, Curtis and Mallory were determined to keep losing after they got home. "When you see us again, we're gonna be thinner," Mallory said at elimination.
