Chris Powell had his hands full with this week's lucky participant in 'Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC). More than anyone we've seen before, Wally is deep into an addiction to food, and it proved more than Powell could handle.
During the first three months, Wally was doing fine and even hit his three-month goal. But that's because Powell was living with him, motivating him to work out, and more importantly keeping him out of those drive-thrus.
Wally's level of addiction to food is as bad as any drug addict or alcoholic. He lies to friends and loved ones, sneaks money to buy the food and even spiraled into despair. Powell tried to do what he could to help Wally find his inner drive and will to succeed and change, but it was just setback after setback.
