The next episode of Extreme Weight Loss Season Four introduces a man from Oklahoma City who put on weight as he battled depression after serving in the military. It also introduces a Las Vegas woman whos been overweight and bullied since childhood. Only one of the two will complete the full year-long transformational journey.

Featuring a unique, non-competitive approach to weight loss transformations, Extreme Weight Loss airs TUESDAY, AUGUST 19 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network.

Kenny is a 35-year-old married father of three who quickly gained 150 pounds after leaving the Marines. When severe tornadoes ripped through his hometown of Moore, Okla. in 2013 destroying his childrens school and his childhood home -- Kenny realized how short life really is and vowed to make a lifestyle change.

36 year-old Christy has been overweight her entire life. Growing up she experienced severe, painful bullying and in elementary school she attempted suicide by riding her bike into oncoming traffic and was hit by a pickup truck. Now a caretaker to her ailing mother, Christy rarely leaves the house.

This episode documents Kennys and Christys physical and emotional journeys.

New in Season Four, each Extreme Weight Loss participant spends the first 90 days of his or her weight loss journey at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center (AHWC) in Aurora, CO. Holly Wyatt, MD, medical director for the AHWC, also serves as medical director for the television program and is seen on the show each week helping participants safely lose up to half of their body weight.

At the end of this episode, one show cast member, Kenny or Christy, will pay it forward by giving a friend or family member the opportunity to transform his or her life. The CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center will provide a scholarship to the one-week, evidence- based Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp transformation program.
