Forty-three-year-old Paul Marks from Rockledge, Florida is a humorous big guy resembling a huge teddy bear. He is determined to get fit and healthy, as he is concerned about his family history of bad health. His father died at age 47, while his grandfather and great grandfather at ages 49 and 51, respectively. Paul says that he is determined to break the trend, and thus teamed up with his ex-wife Kelly Fields
to lose weight together.
A former military man with a heart of gold, Paul likes rooting for the underdog probably because he thinks he is one of them. Despite that, Paul most likely will charm the viewers of NBC's The Biggest Loser, in which he teams up with Kelly to lose weight.
Paul and Kelly comprised the Yellow Team on NBC's The Biggest Loser 5. Paul entered the competition with 303 lbs. He was eliminated on week 8.
