Could somebody please tell me?

Where to find out the weights for the participants? On a lark, I came to elcubanogordo.com but they are not here. My fault I guess for not knowing.

I'm in the dark here people. Show me the light.

Like the premiere on Feb. 2, I am LOST!

(not a loser last week, unfortunately)

Starting Weights for El Cubano Gordo IV

We've got 16 contestants in the 2010 El Cubano Gordo which makes the starting pot $1,600. This year features former champs Steve Lee and Pete Meyers, who are back with plans to regain their former glory and physique.

Several competitors have a partner to work with: Husband-and-wife teams Steve and Mary Lee, Dea and Tom Hughes, and Chris and Kristi Brand will work together to shed the extra pounds.

Returning New Yorkers this year include Chris Bell, Colleen Soriano and Cathy Salazar, and they're joined by first-timer Rory O'Connor.

Ever-present contestants Al Muzaurieta and Frank Pena will once again throw their hats in the ring with hopes of coming out on top.

Rounding out our list of competitors are two women from Florida and Connecticut, who might have the work-out advantage due to climate and space.

The next three months will fly by, so let's get off to a good start. Good luck, everyone!
