Although Dane is 395 pounds, he still plays sports and is more athletic than anyone his size. Dane fears leaving his family at a young age, and because of his size it is possible that could be in the not-too-distant future. He has to do this, and the love of his family along with his competitive spirit will make sure that he is the Biggest Loser.
Blaine and Dane are very close cousins and friends who love laughing and making fun of each other. They enjoy living less than a mile down the street from one other and both have families of five, which gives them a big cheering section. At a combined weight of 755 pounds, they say their bodies are "pure relaxed muscle ready to be whipped into shape." Both Blaine and Dane have health conditions that they can overcome by losing weight and becoming healthy.
