SHOW ALUMNI DIES AT 38
Sad news for the Biggest Loser family. Damien Gurganious,who competed on the show in 2009 with his wife (then-fiancee) Nicole Brewer, has died. He was 38 years old.
Nicole posted the following message on her Facebook page:
"As most of you know, I never post on social media. So, it is highly ironic and deeply sad that my first true post is to inform you of the tragic loss of my beloved husband, Damien Gurganious," she wrote. "Damien suffered from the sudden onset of a rare autoimmune disorder, Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), which caused inoperable bleeding in his brain. Damien passed away on Monday, November 24, 2014. All of you who knew Damien can attest to his generous and loving spirit, his outgoing and gregarious personality, and his caring and compassionate nature. Damien always desired to bring out the best in those around him by offering encouragement, support and love, often couched in his own hilarious and sage adages."
Damien is also survived by a two year old daughter named Giselle.
The show will air an in memoriam when the show returns next week.
TVGrapevine sends their condolences to his family during this difficult time.
