Former Contestant Remains in Critical Condition

Season 9 “The Biggest Loser” fan favorite Sam Poueu is still in critical condition after falling from a building Saturday in San Francisco.

TMZ reports that Poueu is conscious but is being treated for a punctured lung, a broken leg and a pelvic injury. There has been no word on what caused Poueu to fall from the building.

A spokesperson for NBC released this statement to People Magazine:  “Sam Poueu is a beloved member of our “Biggest Family” family and we are keeping him and his family in our thoughts and prayers.”

Poueu’s fellow season 9 castmate Ashley Johnston has been updating fans via her Facebook page.

“Sam Poueu is making great improvements everyday! He is still in critical condition, but your prayers are being heard so please keep them coming! God is listening and Sam is fighting!” Johnston writes.
