Mark has opened up about his weight loss journey on the show. “I played football for a year at University Buffalo and I graduated. I was a big boy,” he’s said. “I weighed about 330-340 and then I knew I had to get in shape.”

Though he’s a tough guy in the gym, he’s a self-proclaimed teddy bear, too! “I’m a big teddy bear,” he added.  “I usually tell them, ‘Don’t tell anyone I said that’ because I like the whole tough guy persona but as soon as I smile, it’s hard to hide.”
