This Long Island family man and deli owner works day and night to provide for his family. Erik was an athlete growing up but after he stopped running twice a day, the weight started packing on. His massive weight gain has tremendously impacted his wife and daughters by limiting what he can do with them. However, don't underestimate Erik; he still is light on his feet and often breaks out into dance moves. When it comes to competition Erik says he will shine and leave everyone in the dust. Erik is the guy that everyone will be rooting for!
