Marion chats with Genghis about his journey at home, and how he dealt with life after the resort. Genghis shares his struggles with his diet, and his determination to win the title for his country.
Raj bursts through the image of his former self, and his family and friends go crazy with excitement.

Genghis is the first one up on the scales. The excitement is palpable as he gets on the scales and his numbers start to come up on the scale. Genghis’s starting weight was a hundred and sixty two kilos, and his current weight is a hundred and five kilos. Genghis has lost a massive fifty seven kilos, and his weight loss percentage stands at 35.19 %. The second finalist to weigh in is Raj. He goes up on the scale and his starting weight of a hundred and forty four kilos comes up on the board. The total kilos lost is an impressive sixty seven kilos which brings him to 46.53% weight loss. This immediately puts Genghis out of the race and Raj is visibly overjoyed that he is still in the running. Nai is the last up on the scales. His starting weight in the competition was a hundred and thirty seven kilos and marion informs him that he needs to lose at least sixty four kilos to beat Raj to be crowned asia’s next Biggest Loser.
Nai’s current weight stands at seventy four kilos, and his weight loss is sixty three kilos. This makes raj the biggest loser and Nai unfortunately loses out to his arch blue team enemy.

He talks about how proud he is for overcoming every single adversity and achieving this ultimate goal. With balloons and confetti popping,, the second season of the biggest loser asia wraps.
