NBC's popular daytime drama Passions welcomes The Biggest Loser couple Matt Hoover (Season 2 winner) and Suzy Preston (Season 2 finalist) as they make their acting debut Thursday, March 16 (2 p.m. ET on most NBC stations, check local listings).

Hoover and Preston, who taped their scenes on the Passions set in Studio City, California on Friday, February 3, portray a romantic couple hopelessly in love and enjoying an evening stroll through Harmony. The pair shares a loving exchange and kiss during their guest star appearance.

Hoover and Preston kindled their relationship while filming Season 2 of NBC's hit weight-loss series The Biggest Loser, which he went on to win and she placed 3rd. It was during a moment when Preston cut Hoover's hair that viewers caught a glimpse of a budding romance. Their long-distance relationship has kept them apart for only a few weeks at a time since The Biggest Loser finale in November, as they have been busy on various promotional events for the show. Hoover is now a full-time motivational speaker and Preston continues to style hair.

Passions, is the creation of celebrated daytime drama scribe James E. Reilly, who is considered by many industry insiders to be one of the most innovative and prolific writers of his time (TV Guide named him one of Television's Most Valuable Players, February 2001). Passions is produced by NBC Universal Television Studios in association with Outpost Farm Productions, Inc. Lisa de Cazotte is the executive producer.
