Big Kev sent packing from The Biggest Loser

THE biggest ever contestant in the history of the Biggest Loser franchise was eliminated last night.

"Big Kev" Moore and his mum Rosemary Reynolds were the second team sent packing from the new-look The Next Generation series in one of the show's most heated evictions.

The weigh-in saw the pair fall below the yellow line - along with fellow heavy-weighters Anita and Cher - having lost only a combined 2.4 kilograms in the entire week.

The trainers were shocked to learn that for the first time in the show's history they would be voting out one of the two teams.

"The contestants we'd been fighting to save for the last five weeks we were supposed to put someone's head on the block," trainer Shannan Ponton told The Guide last night on the Logies red carpet.

"Kevin was obviously below the yellow line and wasn't fighting really hard to be there.

"We either send him home to die because he doesn't want to be there or we send someone else home to keep him home not knowing whether he'll keep it up, so it was an absolutely horrible situation."

The trainers passed in their votes, forcing host Hayley Lewis to send the team with the lowest weight-loss percentage packing.

According to the show's producers, the mum and son are working hard at home and sticking to their weight loss goals.

"The hardest thing about weight loss is getting started, but now we have there is no going back," Kevin said.

The Biggest Loser: The Next Generation airs tonight at 7.30pm.
