REDBANK'S Biggest Loser contestant Hamish Elliot is the subject of the affections of another competitor.
All of the show's contestants entered as singles, and it seems romance has arrived for Hamish and fellow contestant Michelle Cortesao.
Before the show began, Ms Cortesao, 24, admitted she had never been kissed or had a boyfriend.
The pair is said to have developed a special friendship during their time slogging it out among a strict routine of exercise and diet.
They will spend a romantic night away this week.
Hamish's extracurricular activities may also help in his quest to shed more weight.
It is believed kissing can burn around 120-325 calories an hour, or five calories a minute, while a 10-minute cuddle-up with your partner each evening could burn up to 100 calories.
