— As reported earlier, Kim Neilson, who appeared for TNA Wrestling from 2002 to 2004 as Desire, is a contestant on the upcoming season of the NBC reality television series The Biggest Loser premiering January 3, 2012. She is billed as a former professional wrestler and the show’s producers are looking to air footage from her days in the Nashville based promotion. They contacted a YouTube account featuring footage of her in TNA asking who owns its rights.
After leaving the professional wrestling industry in 2004, she became pregnant with her third child, stopped exercising and started overeating. Now a single mother of three at age 38, Neilson weighs 252 pounds and says she is tired of hiding from wrestling fans, friends and family because of the way she looks.
