Jackson Carter from "Biggest Loser 2013" is one of the contestants in Season 14 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. He is a volunteer coordinator for the LGBT Resource Center and works as a movie theater assistant manager in Layton, Utah.

Jackson Carter says his primary motivation for going on "The Biggest Loser" is the kids he mentors as a volunteer coordinator and board member for an LGBT youth outreach center. "I want to be a role model for those kids so that they grow up to

lead successful, healthy lives," says Jackson. 

He was born in Roosevelt, Utah, a small town on a Ute Indian reservation, and raised there with his two younger siblings before moving at age seven to Layton, Utah. Except for a brief period in high school when he was very fit, he has always been overweight and experienced bullying both for his weight and his sexuality after coming out at age 14.  

Now 21 years old and 328 pounds, Jackson is a student at Weber State University, where he is majoring in theater education with a minor in social work, while also working and volunteering. His busy schedule has left him little time to plan nutritious meals or follow an exercise routine, and the convenience of fast food and tendency to eat when stressed haven't helped. Once he loses weight, Jackson looks forward to participating in physical activities with his OUTreach kids, being able to go to the beach and take his shirt off, and changing the lives of those around him who are also struggling with their weight.
