They lost the weight — and gained a romance. Daniel Wright, 20, a student from Willow Spring, N.C., and Rebecca Meyer, 25, a student from Des Moines, Iowa, were best friends on the ranch while contestants on The Biggest Loser. And now, OK! can exclusively reveal — they’re a couple!
The couple dropped a few hints of their romance, including Daniel’s promise at his elimination on Nov. 10 to introduce friends to his “new girlfriend” at the episode’s finale. Rebecca’s tears at his elimination was also an indication of her true feelings for her new beau.
The newly slimmed down twosome decided to make things romantic during a Sept. 11 phone call, and have spoken on the phone every day, a source close to the show tells OK!.
“They initially planned to see each other one week every month, but it has increased to two weeks,” the insider reveals.
