beyond that. A Seattle native raised in Portland with a younger sister, Arthur was always a big kid, but sports helped keep his weight in check until his junior year in high school when he had trouble making the weight of 275 lbs. for wrestling. In the year 2000, he lost his insurance agency and gained 200 lbs., and then gained an additional 100 lbs. after the birth of his son in 2007.

Now a father of two, 34-year-old Arthur has high blood pressure and diabetes. He was inspired by season seven contestant Ron Morelli, and looks forward to going to the Portland Trailblazers games when he has lost weight, something he always enjoyed doing as a child with his father. He also hopes to inspire people who are too large to go on "The Biggest Loser" and let them know that there is hope for them too.
