Layton resident Jackson Carter will sweat it out on 'The Biggest Loser,' a reality TV show and weight-loss competition, which is set to kick off its newest season Sunday on NBC. Dubbed the "first openly gay contestant," the 21-year-old Utahn auditioned for the show in Salt Lake City because he wanted to inspire others to be themselves, whether overweight or gay. He knows about both.
