An offensive lineman for Tennessee from 1987-90, Davis was an All-American and an Outland Trophy finalist. He went on to be drafted eighth overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1991 NFL Draft, kicking off a five-year NFL career. In 2012, Davis was hired to head UT's Vol For Life program.

Week 11 (Nov. 29 airdate): Making it to makeover week ... and the final four!
Yes! It is Makeover Week. Everyone wants to make it to Makeover Week and let me tell you, it was AWESOME! This is the week you get to clean up and wear real clothes as opposed to the "Biggest Loser" clothes that we have been wearing for the last 11 weeks. This is the time that you get to see what you are going to look like when you get home and, if you are a big fan of the show, then you know that this is the episode where you get to see your family members for the first time since getting on the ranch.

Wow, what an exciting week of new things and now we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. This is our last week on the ranch -- we get to go home to our families.

First things first. Along with the makeovers, we had a challenge this week. It was the dreaded "put the weight back on" challenge. This is where you have to put back on all the weight that you have lost and see what it feels like. This really lets you know where you have come from.

Former Vol Antone Davis To Appear On "Biggest Loser"

The Knoxville News Sentinel has a story on former Vols OT Antone Davis appearing on the Biggest Loser:  

The 12th edition of "The Biggest Loser" will be a battle of the ages -- which is not a prediction of the season's quality but a statement of fact about the way it's organized this time around.

At the start of the season, which premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20, the 15 contestants will split into three groups based on their ages -- under 30, between 30 and 49 and 50 and older. They'll then quickly have to make one big decision: which trainer to choose. "Biggest Loser" veteran Bob Harper is returning, but he's joined by two newcomers to the show, fitness expert Dolvett Quince and former professional tennis player Anna Kournikova.

The contestants include a former NFL player, Antone Davis, who has seen his weight rise to 447 pounds since he retired in 1997; Bonnie Griffin, a 63-year-old grandmother who lost her home in Hurricane Katrina; and Patrick Ferrari, who wants to lose weight so he can pass the physical requirements to be a police officer.
