Cousins and former Rancho Cotate football linemen Sam Poueu and Koli Palu are taking it off.

Sam weighed 372 pounds and Koli 403 when they began working off the weight in front of TV cameras for NBC's wildly popular "The Biggest Loser." They're co-stars of the program's ninth season, which begins Jan. 5.

Koli, 29, is Tongan and a football coach at Windsor High. Sam, 24, was born in American Samoa and he works as a security guard.

It'll be fun to see what becomes of them.
