Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Tri-Cities Biggest Loser is crowned today after losing more than 73 pounds. This year Kia Ora Fitness helped nearly 200 people slim down and shape up in the contest. The title went to Anthony Scott of Pasco. Scott trained everyday for the past 10 weeks and lost 21% of his body weight bringing him to 247 pounds.

Scott says it feels great to lose the weight but he has his family to thank for the motivation. "I came into this to want to lose weight, be around my kids longer. To be an example to them to lose weight, to show them what a healthy lifestyle is, eating right, exercising. Doing all the things we need to do," said Scott.

Scott won a big screen HDTV and laser treatments. The second runner up was Samuel Hernandez of West Richland who lost 60 pounds.

The next Tri-Cities Biggest Loser Challenge will start January 13th.
