Growing up around his father's band, Michael was inspired by music and became a mobile deejay at the very young age of 11. This exposure to large crowds allowed him to feel comfortable as the center of attention. Starting at a young age, Michael has always struggled with his weight. In recent years he has tried everything he could to lose weight, including dangerous over-the-counter and prescription pills, trendy diet plans, expensive nutritionists, starvation and, at his most desperate attempts, forcing himself to be bulimic. Michael's biggest goals are to pursue a career in advertising and public relations, and to eventually meet the love of his life and start a family.
The Team: Both Maria and Michael are proud to be 100% Italian-American. Unfortunately, most of the food they cook and eat is not the healthiest. Maria and Michael agree that with the help of The Biggest Loser they can find ways to substitute old world unhealthy ingredients with modern healthy alternatives. This mother/son team hopes to set an example, and send out a message to all Italian-Americans, that keeping your traditions and culture alive does not necessarily mean carrying on old, bad habits.
