MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) leadership on Monday said they are open to having Larry Martin, the very first Pinoy Biggest Loser, back in the service.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, PNP Chief Nicanor Bartolome said they will take a closer look at PO1 Martin’s record since he may just have the right job for him.

If he is accepted back, Bartolome said he might be assigned in the physical fitness unit as he would be a good role model to his fellow policemen.

Martin left the PNP in March 2002 because he knew could not pass the “34" waistline policy” of former PNP chief and now Senator Panfilo Lacson.

Martin decided to join ABS-CBN’s “Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” this year.

He entered the Biggest Loser camp weighing 255 pounds.

After 125 days inside the camp, Martin lost 101 pounds and now weighs 154 pounds.

In a separate interview, Martin already expressed his desire to go back to service. – Report from Gus Abelgas, ABS-CBN News
