A month or so ago there was a big write up in the paper and film crews were here with his family and friends down at the waterfront for his homecoming. This was the first time I had heard about him being on the show.
In last night's paper was a really nice write-up on him and said that since much of the show is filmed far ahead of its broadcast date, House and his family have been sworn to secrecy about his progress. He said, Being in California, away from my family for three months, it's been pretty tough. But coming back to this -- I know it's been worth it." At the ranch, House had worked with trainers, Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper. He returns home to continue the work in the second phase of the competition.
The sad part is...he recently got laid off from his job from a food service firm. I do hope Patrick went all the way with the contest and that he will be able to find work soon.
