"The Biggest Loser" family has lost a beloved member. Daniel Wright died after a long battle with cancer at only 30-years-old.


Daniel Wright appeared on the reality TV show "Biggest Loser" as a competitor in the seventh and eighth seasons of the weight loss competition. According to a GoFundMe page first published in December 2017, Wright had been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

He underwent chemotherapy and dozens of blood transfusions to treat his cancer but relapsed in December 2018. Months later, the 30-year-old has died.

"Yesterday the world lost a bit of its light," former castmate Danny Cahill wrote on Facebook.


Wright’s wife, Rebecca Wright would often give updates on his health on her Facebook page. She kept fans, friends, and family up-to-date with Wright's treatments and progress.

Rebecca’s last post was on May 24, two days before Wright passed away. She explained that her husband was undergoing treatment after noticing blood clots in his vomit and stool.

Since his passing, several former Biggest Loser contestants have spoken out on social media. Many of the contestants shared their condolences.


Season 12’s Joe Mitchell took to Facebook to share a message writing:

“Please keep Rebecca Wright and her family in your thoughts and prayers. After a long heroic fight, my fellow Biggest Loser and Browns fan Daniel Wright is at peace now in our Lord and Saviors arms. He was a hero and a man of faith who inspired so many, including me, during his short time on this earth.”
