Stephen Kmet from "Biggest Loser 2016" is one of the contestants featured in Season 17 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. He is teamed up with his wife, Jacky Kmet. Stephen is a pharmaceutical sales recruiter from Hainesport, New Jersey. His starting weight is 309 lbs.

For Stephen Kmet, a husband and father of two children, being overweight has not only impacted his health but also his career. As a former pharmaceutical sales manager, he says, "presentation and image are everything. Companies don't want to hire an obese person to represent them and their health products." So he has had to take a less lucrative position in his field and now works as a pharmaceutical sales recruiter.

Born in Summit, New Jersey, and raised in nearby Union with an older sister, Stephen later graduated from Albright College with a degree in business administration and went on to get his MBA from Rutgers University. He was a big kid growing up, but says he really gained weight in the past five years after a job layoff, the diagnosis and death of his father from ALS and the diagnosis of his five-year-old son with juvenile diabetes. He also stopped playing hockey after his son was born, and consumes a lot of fast food and soda.

Now 309 pounds and suffering from sleep apnea, the New Jersey Devils fan and avid poker player looks forward to being able to play ice hockey again, teaching his son how to play and to skate, coaching his 12-year-old daughter in field hockey, as well as learning how to surf.
