Man quits 'Extreme Weight Loss' for first time in show's history

'Extreme Weight Loss': Contestant Quits For The First Time Ever

On "Extreme Weight Loss," a client quit for the first time in the history of the show.

Ty: "Just ... let me go home."
CHRIS: "If you do that, chances are you will probably fail."
Ty: "As far as I'm concerned right now, the show is over."


Chris Powell and his wife Heidi were sad to see Ty give up so easily. His excuse? He originally came on the show to slim down for an opportunity to play in the big leagues, but turns out his scout was a fraud. When Ty found out he wasn't really being scouted, he gave up on everything.

The Twitterverse was outraged at Ty, upset that he refused help and willingly quit a chance of a lifetime.

And Fans on Facebook agreed, saying they would give anything for just ten minutes with Chris or Heidi, and that Ty took the place of someone more deserving.

SEEMS TO ME THAT HE NEEDS SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO. AT THIS TIME HE ONLY SEES THAT LOSING WEIGHT WILL NOT CHANGE ANYTHING. MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE HIM HELP FORM A TEAM OF YOUNG PEOPLE TO PLAY HIS GAME. SOME TIME WE LOSE THE VISION, BLESSING OF HELPING OTHER PEOPLE

Ty is only hurting himself in the long run, and one day he will realize his foolish mistake.,

Hopefully but I would not count on it. This guy does not want to put in the time to help himself. He just wants it to be easy without working for a goal.

I did watch the show last night and after he was showed
the paperwork on his so called coach or scam artist that is
when he said he did not want to continue I think his father
should have taught him that if you want anything in life it takes
work no one is giving you something for nothing he had or has no
concept of that. I feel sorry for him that he missed a great opportunity
but that is what we do when we are young (stupid mistakes) I hope
he does achieve his goal in life my advise stay strong keep your dreams
learn from your mistakes. on a better note the one that did stick with her
goals looks great

A guy like this acheives nothing because he refuses to work for it. He will be a fat lard ass who will wind up collecting benifits because he is too big to work and develope health issues that we will be paying for and all because he does not want to commit to anything that includes working at something. Go home big baby and have momma change your giant depends too.Have you jaws wired and for sure you will lose weight and get off you couch and do something.

Wow, You know...the guy may have wasted an opertunity but damn. "hi beautiful" wow...you are a real judgemental *******!

He's probably well aware that he's passing on an opertunity but he's not the first and won't be the last. And it is his choice. People surprise you sometimes. Sometimes handing someone the gift of a lifetime isn't what helps them. Look at all the people that have spend hundrends of thousands of dollars on rehabs only to get wasted on the way home from the place. They were given a once in a lifetime chance to save themselves a crapload of pain and misery and they blew it off. After going to jail and loosing their jobs, wives/husbands, kids THEN they do something about the problem. And not a minute before then. That's just how it works. Calling this guy the names you did isn't helping him a bit. I hope you feel better.

Good Grief, this Little Boy, obviously, had deeper problems than Chris & Heidi should have to deal with. It's a shame a more deserving person didn't get that shot at a chance to change their life!

He sounds like he suffers from depression. With a hopeful moment gone, he fell back into it.

As the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. I would stay on the show as long as possible just to work with Heidi.
