'Biggest Loser' Dane Did Not Run That Marathon Exactly

Posted by Fara Kearnes on February 26, 2009 10:17 PM |

dane pattersonDane Patterson was eliminated from "The Biggest Loser" after last night's weigh-in amid a lot of agreement that HE JUST HAD TO GO since he was the strongest contestant after having lost the most weight (100 pounds). He posed the most serious threat to the other losers who also want that fat cash prize.

But in the follow-up segment, Dane is shown running across the finish line of a 26.2 mile marathon in Arizona with his wife. Whoa-hoa, people thought, good job .... uh, even though he's still obese and didn't look a bit tired. Turns out he got a ride for a portion of the race...

The goatee'd big guy told the viewing audience he was proud of his accomplishments and would be fine continuing his weight loss program.

"I'm proud that I'm walking away from The Biggest Loser ranch with a record, I lost 100 lbs. in eight weeks, no one in the history of the show has done that and I'm just so grateful for the opportunity that I've had to be on the show."

Back at home in Mesa, AZ, he trained with his wife since leaving the show with the goal of running a marathon with her.

Dane, 27, supposedly completed the marathon in the eye-popping time of 3:53 while still, clearly, being 100 pounds overweight.

It turns out that other runners have come forward posting on blogs today say that what was shown on the show - isn't so.

In fact, Dane was picked up by a van along the course and dropped back down somewhere prior to the finish and then he ran across the finish line for the camera. He and his wife were disqualified but it was represented on the show that they had "finished" in under 4 hours - which is an incredible feet even for a regular marathoner.

It's sad about the dishonesty but Dane was a great guy on the show. His wife claims they ran 23 of the 26 miles - still a great feat! - but that needed to be explained if it is true.

I would have been more impressed had he finished it with a time of 5 or 6 hours or longer. Just as long as he did the whole thing.
