Dane Patterson and Blaine Cotter
The Biggest Loser Season 7
Dane Patterson and Blaine Cotter were always the heavy guys at the family get-togethers.
Related by marriage, the pair hadn’t established much in common besides the unhealthy pounds they each carried around for years.
“Really, our most common thing was we were the two big, fat guys in the family,” said Cotter, whose first cousin is married to Patterson. “That was how we were related more than anything.”
Today, the cousins-in-law are significantly lighter — and closer — as a result of competing on Season 7 of NBC’s reality weight-loss show “The Biggest Loser.” Deseret News
