'The Biggest Loser' Season 10 Winner Is ...

MSNBC.COM - Formerly unemployed father of two Patrick House once described 2010 as a "terrible year," but now he has to admit, it hasn't been so bad at all.

Sure, he lost his job as a sales rep, begged and borrowed to keep a roof over his head and at 400 pounds, feared his battle with morbid obesity would mean he'd never see his sons grow up. But by Tuesday night, all of that seemed like another life and a much different year, as a healthier, happier and 181 pounds lighter Patrick won the $250,000 grand prize and the title of "The Biggest Loser."

The well-earned honor came after the cavalcade of eliminated "Loser" hopefuls took the stage and showed off their own impressive results and amazing transformations. All combined, the at-home gang lost nearly 2,000 pounds, and individually, some of them even outperformed the grand-prize winner himself.

Among those who won the obesity battle off the ranch with bigger than on-ranch results were Adam Hurtado and Rick DeRoque. The two men shed more than 45 percent of their starting weights, with losses of 220 pounds and 185 pounds, respectively. Still, despite those numbers, neither of them took the top at-home prize.

The $100,000 went to the recently booted Mark Pinhasovich, who started the competition at 421 pounds and left the game barely resembling the man fans first met. He lost an incredible 213 pounds, a smidge more than 50 percent of his starting weight. Mark credited his success to his family back home and his new "Biggest Loser" alumni family.

Of course, it was thanks to a few of Mark's "Loser" pals that his didn't walk away with the biggest win of the night.
