Kahlil Bell recalls when his cousin Sam Poueu told him he was accepted to be a contestant on NBC's "The Biggest Loser" with another cousin Koli Palu.

"He was always 'big Sam'" Bell said of his Samoan brother.

But Poueu didn't stay big for long. He went from 372 pounds during Season 9 of the show, to 238 pounds, a loss of 142 pounds.

"It's been a great transformation to see where he is now," Bell explained.

But Sam came close to not being able to watch his cousin Kahlil perform in Sunday Night's football game. Sam nearly died the weekend before the NFL season began.
