TRAINER CHRIS POWELL CHOOSES HIS FIRST MARRIED COUPLE, BUT SOON REALIZES THAT THE HUSBAND ONLY COMMITTED TO THE PROGRAM TO PLEASE HIS WIFE, ON ABC'S "EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS"

"Jason and Rachel" - Transformational specialist and trainer Chris Powell chooses Jason, 35, and Rachel, 34, to be the first married couple he'll work with. Except for being severely overweight, these high school sweethearts from South Lyon, MI with five-year-old twins have a picture perfect life. But during their first workout together as a couple, Chris comes to realize that Jason only committed to the program to please Rachel, and Chris hopes the transformation process won't tear them apart. Jason's doubts about success are overshadowing Rachel's excitement and motivation. At their first weigh-in, they're both surprised when Jason comes in at 362 pounds and Rachel's starting weight is 290 pounds. If they can reach their six-month weight loss challenge, Chris promises the couple a trip to New York and the Empire State Building, where Jason proposed to Rachel 13 years ago. During their one-year weight loss journey, Jason and Rachel hope to become a stronger couple and an even stronger family, gaining support and a renewed commitment toward their marriage along the way, on "Extreme Weight Loss," TUESDAY, JULY 2 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

"Extreme Weight Loss" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound. This program carries a TV-PG,L parental guideline.
