Biggest Loser season 9 star Sam Poueu is taking a step towards recovery following his four-story fall Sept. 3. People reports Poueu has left ICU after being treated for head trauma and internal injuries. “We are excited to share that Sam is out of ICU and is currently in stable condition,” Poueu and fiancée Stephanie Anderson’s families told People in a statement. “He still has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but we are so encouraged by the progress he continues to make daily.”
