“The Biggest Loser” Divorce: Sam Poueu and Stephanie Anderson Split with Baby on the Way
There’s a bust-up headed to The Biggest Loser Ranch — and we’re not talking about Bob and Jillian. Sam Poueu and Stephanie Anderson, who met and fell in love on the NBC weight-loss reality hit, are divorcing.
In a statement Wednesday, Stephane said:
“It is with great sadness that my marriage to Sam Poueu is ending. Thank you in advance for respecting our privacy during this difficult time.”
Sam and Stephanie who collectively lost more than 200 pounds during their time on the program. They started dating in 2010 and married last year. Anderson is seven months pregnant with the couple’s first child.
Stephanie stood by Sam when he suffered near-fatal injuries in a four-story fall from the roof of a San Francisco apartment building in 2011. Sam was rushed to an Intensive Care Unit with head trauma and several internal injuries — including pelvic injury, a punctured lung, torn ligaments and a broken leg — when he tried to climb down a fire escape at a friend’s apartment after being locked out while on the rooftop of the building.
No reason was given for the split.
