Micah Collum is a 23-year-old from Oneonta, AL whose challenging upbringing had a significant impact on his health. With divorced parents, and a mother struggling with addiction, Micah and his six siblings were often left to fend for themselves while growing up. Always bigger than his peers, Micah’s size was actually a benefit in high school where he was a popular, standout athlete in football and basketball. Since graduating, Micah has gained nearly 100 pounds and has struggled to make ends meet while working a variety of jobs. Joining The Biggest Loser at 326 pounds, Micah wants his experience to be the start of a new chapter in his life that gets him on the right track toward a healthy and fulfilling life.
