Silverton Casino Hotel hosts “The Biggest Loser” Rebecca Meyer

Silverton Casino Hotel hosts “The Biggest Loser” Rebecca Meyer

Meyer makes resort her home during Las Vegas 5K


NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” Season 8 at-home champion Rebecca Meyer is hitting it hard in the valley during the Las Vegas 5K race this Saturday, May 12 as part of her 50 in 50 by 30 Challenge.

Meyer will be staying at Silverton Casino Hotel during her time in town as the resort is one of the sponsors for the race. Her time in Las Vegas will be an inspiration to all.

“It’s already been a really busy year,” said Meyer. “It may sound corny, but I’m especially looking forward to racing in Las Vegas, because 1) it’s Las Vegas, and 2) because I love Pinkberry yogurt, and they’re the sponsor of the Las Vegas 5K this year.” Meyer said she first tasted Pinkberry yogurt while in California competing on “The Biggest Loser.”

With the Utah Run Like a Girl Retreat 5K, the Corpus Christi HITS Triathlon Series sprint triathlon, the TowneBank 8K at the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach, the 5K Gristmill Grinder and the Kent Island Metric Half Marathon in Md. completed so far in 2012, Meyer still has many events to go. Next up in May are Nevada and Oklahoma:



“I have to extend a huge heartfelt thank you to Giant and Forrest Ridgway at Bike World,” noted Meyer. “Now I can train and compete in triathlons on my new Avail 1, which is really exciting for me,” said Meyer.

In addition to support from Giant® Bicycles and Bike World, Champion System is providing race apparel for all Meyer’s races. Meyer also added she is seeking a corporate sponsor to help underwrite her traveling expenses.

“This is a good opportunity for the right corporate sponsor, I think; one that wants national exposure as I travel throughout the United States,” said Meyer.

But racing isn’t the only challenge Meyer has faced since becoming the Season 8 $100,000 at-home winner of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.” In fact, Meyer acknowledges that her “Biggest Loser” experience was just the beginning for her.

“It’s been a little over two years since I left the ranch and started my life back in Des Moines, and I’ve learned a lot about myself and training in that time” noted Meyer. “The journey of lifelong health and fitness has no end. There is no being ‘fixed.’ Rather, it’s allowing myself to be my own normal and embracing what that is at every step in every configuration.”

Meyer has spent the better part of the last two years speaking to groups large and small about what she’s learned during her transformation from an overweight, sedentary person to an ISCA certified personal trainer. When she’s not speaking or participating in a race, she and her now fiancé Daniel Wright, also an alumni from Seasons 7 and 8 of “The Biggest Loser,” spend their days training others through their new company, FitnessWrightNow, LLC.

Movie and Rock Stars Invade the Laugh Factory Las Vegas This Week: Gerry Bednob, Bob Golub and Ace Guillen Will Perform

Movie and Rock Stars Invade the Laugh Factory Las Vegas

This Week: Gerry Bednob, Bob Golub and Ace Guillen Will Perform

The legendary Laugh Factory Las Vegas at the New Tropicana Las Vegas is proud to introduce this week’s impressive comedy lineup: Gerry Bednob, Bob Golub and Ace Guillen will take the stage May 7-13.

Gerry Bednob blew audiences away in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” as “Mooj,” the older, short-tempered co-worker of Steve Carell’s character “Andy.” Now, this scene-stealing comedian is bringing his talent to the Laugh Factory Las Vegas where he will be headlining for the week.

Bednob’s refreshing brand of comedy has led to a meteoric rise in the entertainment industry that has garnered the respect of audiences, critics and industry peers. Prior to appearing in comedy blockbusters such as “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” Bednob had roles on notable television shows such as “Wilfred,” “Undeclared,” and “Seinfeld.” This Trinidad-born comedic powerhouse of East Indian heritage got his start at an open mic night and went on to perform on “The Merv Griffin Show” and win the 1993 Star Search International Stand-Up Competition.

Joining Bednob is Bob Golub, also known as “The Polish Madman.” Golub, known for his versatile and unencumbered comedic style, drives audiences mad with laughter. This “madman” is equipped with a comedic prowess and a relentless drive for success that brought him from childhood poverty and time in prison to an appearance on “The Tonight Show,” a role in Martin Scorsese’s 1990 box-office hit “Goodfellas,” and an invitation to the White House. This success is not limited to the realm of comedy; he developed and produced the first stand-up comedy for the hearing impaired. This fundraiser for the League for the Hard of Hearing in New York has raised more than two million dollars.

Rocker turned comedian Ace Guillen is the freshest face in stand-up. After touring with rock bands and being named a finalist for the Inland Empire Music Awards, Guillen turned his talent to comedy. With rave reviews in major newspapers and magazines, it’s no wonder he performs regularly in major venues across the country. Guillen has made appearances on National Lampoon Radio on XM Satellite Radio, NBC, Comedy Central, and was also a cast member of the sketch comedy show “Unacceptable Behavior” on SiTV.

Laugh Factory Las Vegas features different marquee acts each week, hosting the hottest comedians in the business, from established stand-up superstars to the young rising stars of tomorrow. Laugh Factory Las Vegas shows are performed daily at 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $29 (plus applicable taxes) or $44.95 (plus applicable taxes) for VIP tickets. Special two-for-one tickets are also available for locals and Tropicana Las Vegas hotel guests for both 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. shows.

USA Sevens Rugby Breaks Attendance Records with 64,551 Fans During 2012 Event at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas


USA Sevens Rugby Breaks Attendance Records with 64,551 Fans
During 2012 Event at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas
Largest American Crowd Ever for Live Rugby Event


The sport of rugby and city of Las Vegas are proving to be a perfect match after the 2012 USA Sevens international rugby tournament broke all previous attendance records in its third year at Sam Boyd Stadium. 

The three-day tally of 64,551 rugby fans was a significant increase in attendance from the 2011 USA Sevens. A crowd of 30,323 on Saturday, Feb. 11 was the largest crowd to ever attend a live rugby match in the United States. Attendance was 10,611 on Friday, Feb. 10 and 23,617 for the semifinals and finals matches on Sunday, Feb. 12. 

“We brought USA Sevens to Las Vegas because there was a feeling this city was the perfect international backdrop for our diverse fan base,” said A. Jon Prusmack, owner and CEO of USA Sevens LLC. “Ten years ago, when we took over operations of the tournament, we had a vision to grow rugby in the United States. This weekend’s record-breaking attendance figures prove that vision has become a reality.” 

Those who made the trip to Sam Boyd Stadium for USA Sevens were given the chance to enjoy 45 rugby matches during the three-day competition as 16 international teams battled for points in the HSBC Sevens World Series. After a thrilling championship match, which came down to the final play, the team from Samoa emerged as the champions with a 26-19 victory over New Zealand. 

Additional activities for attendees at Sam Boyd Stadium included the three-day fan festival outside of the stadium, the USA Sevens women’s series matches and the Las Vegas Invitational amateur tournament presented by Station Casinos. 

“Our entire organization is ecstatic with the fans’ reception of our event in Las Vegas,” said Jonathan First, president of USA Sevens. “We promised our fans world-class rugby competition and an unforgettable international party experience. That’s exactly what we delivered. The atmosphere was unbeatable throughout the weekend, and the passion each nation’s fans showed for their teams proved that rugby crowds are some of the best in sports today. Once someone attends a USA Sevens rugby event, they truly become a fan for life.” 

In between the days of rugby action at Sam Boyd Stadium, fans were able to check out a multitude of events throughout Las Vegas at Caesars Entertainment and Station Casinos properties. Events included an international beer festival, reggae bash, autograph signings with the competing nations and the official wrap party on Sunday night. 

For those fans unable to attend the tournament, they were able to watch live action on Saturday and Sunday on NBC, NBC Sports Network and Universal Sports Network.
