I'm very happy for 'Big' Vinny Hickerson from the group "Trailer Choir" for taking the first step to get himself healthy. Hopefully he will no longer be "Rockin' The Beer Gut" as he has joined the reality t.v. show "The Biggest Loser" and will be shedding pounds to win the biggest prize of all...his health.

I watch this show a lot and I'm really looking forward to seeing Vinny on the show.  He really is an incredible guy and deserves to do well for himself.  I've seen this show work wonders for people and really truly hope that it helps him too.  He's got everything else.  All he needs now is his health.

Recently he spoke with Access Hollywood about his early impression of the show and why he decided to join it.
