El Cubano Gordo - The Sequel

In last year's competition, Steve Lee began the contest weighing 204 and was crowned champion after losing 24 lbs and 12% of his body weight.

This year the rules have changed. ECG2 is moving towards a points based system and with its new and improved system will include both a weight loss and physical fitness challenge.

The 10 contestants will earn one point for each pound they lose.

The physical fitness challenge comes in the form of a mini-triathlon consisting of a swim, bike and run. Contestants will participate in the Ameriprise Sprint Triatholon in Miami, FL on May 4, 2008. Contestants are expected to complete the triathlon within 1 hour and 30 minutes, and they will earn one point for every minute under 1:30. For every minute over 1:30 they will lose one point. For example, a contestant who loses 10 lbs and finishes the race in 1:15 will earn a combined 25 points.

The winner will be the contestants with the most combined points and will announced at the conclusion of the race in Miami.
