12/16 - Patrick , Terry Walters, Mike "THE MIZ" Mizanin,

Patrick - WINNER - NBC's "The Biggest Loser"
Twenty-eight-year-old Patrick didn't realize he had any health issues before The Biggest Loser, but soon discovered he had sleep apnea, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and was pre-diabetic. It wasn't until Patrick was in college that he really started putting on weight. While pursuing his degree in business management at Delta State University, he was an offensive lineman for the school's football team and consumed large quantities of food to maintain that position. An injury forced him to stop playing, but he continued to maintain the same diet. Now 400 pounds, married, and the father of two young boys, Patrick's weight affects every aspect of his life - from choosing restaurants with seating that can accommodate his large size, to being unable to go on rides with his sons at the state fair. Determined to have a better, healthier life with his wife and family, Patrick looks forward to riding roller coasters at amusements parks, playing with and coaching his sons, and not using seatbelt extenders on the plane.  In an exciting, two-hour live finale on Tuesday, December 14 (9-11 p.m. ET), the winner of NBC 's hit series "The Biggest Loser" will finally be revealed, along with the incredible transformations of all season ten contestants. And in the first part of the show, the third finalist - as determined by America's vote - will also be revealed. All of the contestants from season ten will return for the finale to weigh in one last time and show America how much weight they've lost since the beginning of their weight-loss journeys. The transformations will be profound, not just for the finalists, but also for the eliminated contestants who all continued to lose weight after returning home from "The Biggest Loser" ranch. Those returning will also include the contestants who lost the seven-city challenge in the premiere episode and never made it to the ranch, but continued their weight loss journeys at home. In the most recent episode that aired on December 7, Alfredo "Frado" Dinten (Staten Island, New York) and Patrick House (Vicksburg, Mississippi) weighed in above the yellow line, securing their spots as two of this season's three finalists. Contestants Elizabeth Ruiz (Lawrence, Massachusetts) and Ada Wong (Gilroy, California) fell below the yellow line, leaving America to choose between them to determine the third place finalist competing alongside Frado and Patrick for the $250,000 grand prize.

WWE's Mike "THE MIZ" Mizanin - "WWE Tribute To The Troops" NBC
World Wrestling Entertainment®, in conjunction with NBC, will honor the United States Armed Forces with its third annual telecast of its holiday special, "WWE Tribute to the Troops." This year, top WWE Superstars and Divas will travel to Fort Hood, Texas to entertain the nearly 350,000 military personnel, family members, and civilians that make up the largest active duty armored post in the United States Armed Services. Thousands of men and women from Fort Hood have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. The hour-long special will air Saturday, December 18 (8-9 p.m. ET / 7-8 p.m. CT) on NBC. Be good. Be bad. Be MIZ.That's the saying... Why you ask? I created a character called The Miz because of a feeling I get. Everyone has a Miz in them. People fear bringing their MIZ out because of what everyone's reaction may be. They care too much about what people think instead of being themselves. That fear, that feeling of being scared is what gives MIZ it's amo! Whether it's the fear of approaching someone you desire in a bar for the first time, bungee jumping, sky diving, or just plain old fear of anything, it's allowing yourself to be scared! But when you are being Miz, you step up to that fear and turn that knot in your stomach into energy which then turns to adrenaline which builds up and builds up until you explode. And that my friends is when you are being "MIZ." The Miz is bringing out that raw, primal side. The side that has no judgements that is just you. It doesn't care what people think or how they'll react. The Miz steps up to that fear and shoves it right up someone's ass. Some people say "Be yourself." I say Be good. Be bad. BE MIZ.
