Matt Hoover was the winner of the second season of The Biggest Loser. Starting out at 339 pounds Matt dropped an astounding 157 pounds to finish in first place at 182 pounds.
In this season the producers smartly decided to judge based on the overall percentage of body weight lost instead of judging by who lost the most pounds. Matt started out with a body mass index (BMI) of 48.6 and finished the show with a BMI of 26.1.
