NEW YORK (CBS) After losing 181 lbs. in six months, Patrick House was named the Season 10 winner of "Biggest Loser" on Tuesday night.

The 28-year-old from Vicksburg, Miss., who entered the weight-loss reality competition weighing at 400 lbs., earned $250,000 for his accomplishment.

Before taking part in the show, House lost his job as a salesman and was worried that his battle with obesity would not allow him to see his two young sons grow up. 

But now, House, who plans to use the money to pay off debt, said winning the competition is a fresh start.

"I've changed the future of my life with my family," he said on the finale. "I'm going to be around a lot longer for them."

He beat out Frado Dinten, a 43-year-old New York commodities trader, and 28-year-old Ada Wong, a project coordinator from San Francisco.

Dinten went from 367 lbs. to 205 lbs., losing 162 lbs., while Wong lost 99 lbs, going from 258 lbs. to 159 lbs.

Mark Pinhasovich, from East Brunswick, N.J., won this season's at-home challenge, taking home $100,000. The 31-year-old bartender and recruiter lost 213 lbs, going from 421 lbs. and ending at 208 lbs.
