KTTC Biggest Loser

Gary Kadansky Gary Kadansky

Rochester, MN (KTTC-TV) --  A winner was announced Wednesday in KTTC's Biggest Loser weight-loss contest.

The men and women who took part in the challenge joined NewsCenter's Joshua Stevens bright and early at the Rochester Athletic Club for the big announcement.

Most of them even brought along a fan club to cheer them on.

After the 12-week program, the contestants lost a combined total of around 300 pounds.

When all the online votes were counted, the winner was Gary Kadansky from Stewartville.  Kadansky lost 43 pounds.

"For years, all I've offered up is excuses. I knew what I wanted to do or what I needed to do, but I didn't have the tools and the opportunity like the Biggest Loser contest," Kadansky said. "What you guys have done has given me a great start on reclaiming my health."

Kadansky received a one-year family membership to the Rochester Athletic Club.

The team of sisters, Katie Klingsporn and Shannon Weick came in second.

Craig Sammon and Ron Chives tied for third place.
