Ben Shuh from "Biggest Loser 2012: No Excuses" is one of the contestants in Season 13 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. He is a retail store manager from Howell, Michigan. His brother, Allen "Buddy" Shuh, is also competing on the show.

As the fourth of five children, Ben Shuh ("Biggest Loser 13") literally grew up in a fast food family, with a father who was an executive vice president of Burger King. He was born in Dayton, Ohio, and raised in Michigan, Florida, Ohio and Texas.

Sports helped keep Ben in good shape through high school, where he wrestled and played football. He was a starting defensive tackle for a Texas 5A state qualifying football team, as well as a state-qualifying wrestler. He started gaining weight after high school, and the weight gain continued after a divorce in 2002. 

Now 34 years old and 396 pounds, Ben has been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and sleep apnea. He and his wife have nine children: four children each from their previous marriages, one child together and another on the way. So it is a struggle to find time to exercise with his work schedule and very busy home life. Ben believes he will be a better husband and father when he loses the weight, and looks forward to running a 5K with his wife, shopping at regular clothing stores and playing with his kids and coaching them in sports.
