7:04 am
too slow, joe! you look like a fish monster. >> reporter: cruz nearly drowned out by protesters and hecklers at a stop in bloomington. the texas senator also confronted by a trump supporter. >> do the math. you asked kasich to drop out. it's your turn. take your own word. >> well, now, i'm curious, sir -- >> time to drop out. >> donald told "the new york times" editorial board that he's not going to build a wall, he's not going to deport anyone. >> once again, lyin' ted. >> reporter: and the cruz campaign having to deal with this. >> the next president of the united states, ted cruz! >> reporter: carly fiorina, the senator's running mate losing her footing as she was introducing the cruz family in lafayette, indiana. trump offering this play-by-play. >> she just went down. she went down a long way, right? and she went down right in front of him, and he was talking. he kept talking. he didn't even look like -- that was a weird deal, man. >> reporter: but cruz trying to
7:05 am
offer a serious alternative to the new york billionaire. >> contrary to the media narrative, bullies aren't strong. bullies are weak. bullies are cowards. bullies are scared. >> reporter: now, right now there's no indication if senator ted cruz loses indiana he's going to drop out of the race but it's going to be very, very hard to make the case to donors and to delegates that he has a path to victory. robin. >> all right, tom. now to the democrats. hillary clinton trying to score a big win over bernie sanders in indiana. as she faces tough criticism from coal miners in west virginia. abc's cecilia vega is here with the latest on all that. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. an uncomfortable moment for hillary clinton overnight when she came face-to-face with one coal miner who put her on the spot. but today in indiana, that vote is up for grabs. bernie sanders is hoping for a win to keep him in this race. in the final hours before indiana's crucial vote, bernie sanders was actually in the hoosier state making his case from ft. wayne. >> thank you, all.
7:06 am
>> reporter: to evansville. >> thank you, evansville. >> reporter: sanders needs to win 92% of all remaining delegates to win the nomination. his supporters still enthusiastic. >> i think that choice is to tell the billionaire class -- >> [ bleep ]. >> -- and the corporations -- well, that is one way to phrase it. >> reporter: hillary clinton feeling so confident about clinching the nomination she moved on to the south. >> go home, hillary. >> reporter: protesters greeting her outside a stop in west virginia. inside clinton coming under fire for comments she made about clean energy. >> we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. >> reporter: an out-of-work coal miner putting her on the spot for something she now says is a misunderstanding. >> i just want to know how you can say you're going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you're going to be our friend. >> i know that and, you know,
7:07 am
i'm -- i don't know how to explain it other than what i said was totally out of context from what i meant because i have been talking about helping coal country for a very long time. >> reporter: with all those cameras there that made for a tough moment. clinton made a promise to bring back manufacturing jobs and she said she wants her husband to come out of retirement to help her come up with a plan for those jobs if she makes it to the white house. >> first job she's giving him and jon karl joins us as well, but cecilia, you mentioned that the clinton team confident about the nomination but they don't really know what's going to happen in indiana. >> no, they don't, only a four-point spread. they are downplaying expectations, they say they have not been there very much. they stopped spending ad money in indiana and bernie sanders, on the other hand, this is a must win for him but even if he does win he may have the momentum to tell his supporters we're going to carry this thing all the way through the convention but we know the math is a very different story for him now. >> the math for donald trump, he's basically about a win
7:08 am
today about making him the presumptive nominee. >> he is right. if donald trump wins big in indiana, he will have almost twice as many delegates as ted cruz and all the momentum. seven contests in a row with no real signs of light for ted cruz at the end of the tunnel. i think he will stay in. he's got the money to compete. there's going to be a financial report today from the cruz campaign that says they have $9 million cash on hand but really it's just about waiting for donald trump to implode. >> waiting to see if something happens. meantime, trump is setting his sights on hillary clinton. >> he absolutely is and hillary clinton, believe me, the clinton campaign is gearing up for a fight against donald trump and it's going to be a very unpredictable fight. >> general election could begin tomorrow. >> it very well could and i'll say they seem giddy about getting ready to prepare to run against donald trump. they're making money off his woman card comments that he made against her recently, like a couple million bucks so far. they're hiring staffers in battleground states. it's going to be -- they're ready and i think they're getting more excited. >> she's in ohio today. cecilia and jon, thanks very much.

7:11 am
airport saying she was rudely groped and humiliated during a full body search. >> they go around your breasts, they basically go under your butt, and they touch things that are not appropriate and it's really embarrassing. >> reporter: van dyken has prechecked but because of her wheelchair she can't go through a metal detector and she told the agent that checked her that normally her wheelchair, hands and feet are checked for explosives. the agent called over a supervisor, she says who performed a full body search checking her private parts. van dyken says in full view of other travelers. >> you said literally every other airport is wrong and any other time you've flown through denver and they didn't do that, they're wrong and i'm right. >> reporter: the tsa says they work closely with the disability community to develop screening procedures that integrate the unique needs of those with disabilities saying, in this case, quote, our officers did not follow correct screening protocols. overnight, van dyken-rouen

7:13 am
overnight, prince's siblings in court moving forward trying to settle his multimillion-dollar estate. all five of the six potential heirs who appeared in court signing off on the judge's emergency appointment of bremer trust to handle the purple one's affairs believed to be worth a reported $300 million. a number which factoring in millions of downloads of his songs after his death could climb even higher. >> feel pretty good about it? >> reporter: the minnesota judge not ruling out the possibility that a will for prince could still be found if his siblings are determined to be the only heirs, the family will eventually have to vote for one person to be in charge of dividing up the fortune. >> as a collective unit each individual heir will have an equal vote in the process. >> reporter: sources telling abc news the superstar was getting prescriptions from multiple doctors. authorities executing a search warrant at his local walgreens but prince's former bassist said he never noticed any trouble with the star's health. >> he was really careful of what he would eat and what he would

welcome back to "gma." and look at those powerful storms moving up the east coast right now. severe weather hits the capital overnight. you see that hail hitting washington, d.c., rain as well. we're tracking it all this morning. also, right now we have breaking news. an american service member killed by isis in iraq struck down by direct fire during a combat operation. and this morning the battle is on for indiana, donald trump saying if he wins there, he could seal up the nomination as hillary clinton and bernie sanders face a tight race in the hoosier state. >> that is coming up tonight. but how about last night, ginger on "dancing with the stars." >> yeah. >> what a gorgeous waltz. bruno called it impeccable and it certainly was. incredible choreography by val. and look at that, three perfect 10s, her first of the season. we'll have more on that, and, t.j., you have a lebron james story coming up. >> he is trying to fill michael

7:32 am
look at what happens after the after pictures and how biology may play a bigger role than willpower when it comes to keeping the weight off. we are inundated with weight loss before and after pictures and reality tv shows where overweight contestants end their seasons quite literally half the man or woman they used to be, but now, a new study says if you regain weight after losing it your body may be to blame. in a recent study a group of scientists followed 14 of the 16 contestants from one season of "the biggest loser," monitoring them for the six years after the show. they found that all but one of them gained the weight back. according to the study, while the contestants all had normal metabolism for their size at the start of filming years after it was over their metabolisms continued to slow down, a mechanism the body uses to return to its original weight. further compounding the problem, researchers found the contestants had plummeting
7:33 am
levels of leptin, a hormone thought to control hunger which left them constantly feeling hungry. >> after you lose weight, your body's metabolic rate will slow down, the number of calories that your body requires is going to decrease and that's going to make it difficult for you to keep the weight off. >> i got my life back. i feel like a million bucks. >> reporter: difficult for people like season eight winner danny cahill. 430 pounds before the show, 191 pounds after, but gained nearly 100 pounds back after he returned to work. and dina murcato, 248 before the show, down to 173.5 pounds, now back to almost 206 pounds. the study found her metabolic rate now burns almost 438 fewer calories per day than would be expected for a woman her size. >> had i known what i know today i probably would not have done the show. i didn't want people to know i was on "the biggest loser" because i don't look like that.
7:34 am
>> reporter: jd roth, a co-creator of "the biggest loser" defends his show. >> when the people leave our show, they are better off than being 400 pounds. i do think the study could have done things a little bit differently. i would have also liked them to take 14 people who kept the weight off. we need to use both to come up with the best way to be healthy because we all know we're still trying to figure it out. >> reporter: in response to the study producers of "the biggest loser" released this statement to abc news, saying, "the lead medical doctor on the show has been made aware of this most recent study and is in the process of evaluating its findings." and for those dieters who do blame themselves this science may lift the biggest weight of all off their shoulders. >> over to robin. >> joining us "the biggest loser" season eight winner danny cahill and abc news medical contributor dr. jennifer ashton. thank you both. danny, so good to meet you. we heard in linsey's piece after you won and you said that you got your life back and you felt like a million bucks. what happened after that? >> you know, i did feel like a million bucks. after that, for a couple of years i kept the weight off
7:35 am
completely. but i was -- i wondered why others were gaining it back but what i didn't realize i was working out two hours a day riding my bike all over town to go where i was going. i was exercising three or four times as much as the normal person and once that stopped, the weight started creeping back on. >> and so, when you hear this study, how do you process that information? >> well, number one, it's great because a lot of the shame that is on our shoulders, i mean, when you gain weight back even when you're in school it's shameful. when you're in front of america, then it's even -- it's ten times as shameful and so many people that i've talked to, including myself, when we found this out we were like, all right, some of it is not our fault. we can't be victim to it but it is our responsibility but some of it has to do with this science. >> and sitting here with you is somebody -- you were just recently, jen, board certified in obesity medicine. >> uh-huh. >> it's not just about contestants like danny on "the biggest loser." this affects everyone trying to lose weight. >> especially in the obesity medicine world so this is something that has been known in
7:36 am
the medical and scientific community for almost 20 years, robin, and it's a concept called metabolic adaptation or some people call it the defense of fatness. let me show you what i mean. if you take two individuals, both weighing 200 pounds -- one is at their ideal weight, one has lost 20 pounds to get to 200, which is an incredible success in the weight loss world. the person who's lost weight at 200 pounds has a slower metabolism and burn fewer calories and are hungrier and less full than a person at the same weight. now, to be clear there are some successes but the majority of people who have lost significant weight at the two-year mark fail to keep it off. they regain that weight and this does not mean that they are failures as danny said. this is medical and scientific reality. >> but how do you hear this information, jen, and not get discouraged? >> well, i think by turing it into a positive because we know that there are multiple factors that goes into the conditions of overweight and obesity. this is a complex problem.
7:37 am
the gold standard now in the world of obesity medicine is kind of a pyramid. and if you look at the bottom, no question, behavioral modification, diet, exercise, then you go to fda-approved weight loss medications because we need to treat this as a chronic illness and then at the top of that is bariatric surgery and it's about using all these tools in your arsenal and incorporating the psychological and emotional factors, as well. >> and it's very important you saw in there still about exercise. >> that's the foundation. >> and that is something you're continuing to do, danny. >> yes, and not as much as i used to and that's part of why i've gained -- i gained most of my weight back over the last year and a half when i got a job because i sit at a desk now and i had to retrain myself and have a whole new schedule. you know, but the numbers don't define me. you know, and i'm not going to be victim to it and we don't have to be. we can -- i mean, i know that i'll do what david did when he tackled goliath. i know that there's a bigger -- there's a bigger god out there that wants me to be well and i am going to do everything i can but i can't do it all.
7:38 am
that's the whole trick. if i keep trying to do it all -- >> that's not going to work. >> i love how you talk about your family and you know why you want to keep your weight down because of your family. >> and i always say, you got to find your why and have a reason why. well, this study to me is a steppingstone into where we're going to direct even more studies and we're going to find a lot of answers so this puts a whole new purpose to my journey. >> see, i love -- you both have found a positive here because people waking up and hearing about this are like, oh, throwing their hands up. >> and always strive for good health, that's important. >> yes, that's the key thing. danny, so nice to meet you and, jen, you'll take questions on twitter because i know you will have a lot of questions. tweet her @drjashton. george. >> okay, robin. coming up here -- david hasselhoff claiming he only has $600 in his bank account, says he's nearly broke. we'll get into that this morning. and "deals & steals" on

8:32 am
i love the lowe's and also right here on the beach, such good memories for me growing up, so i'm excited to be here but most excited because i have all these amazing women-run businesses with phenomenal deals, so first up, this is one that "gma" viewers are going to recognize. soy delicious. and you'll recognize it because not very long ago when i first found this company, in one day "gma" viewers bought 9,933 of these candles and you've e-mailed to say, bring them back. so we've brought them back. it's a phenomenal company. started by two best friends, maggie and georgette both born and raised in miami. both of them were public schoolteachers and then decided that they instead wanted to create a company so that they could have more time for their kids and they created this beautiful soy candle, and what i love is that they've brought us all new scents, six new scents plus travel candles like the little teeny travel candles that come in a variety of sets, so i love that. so, there's a big assortment for everybody. packaging and display they say was the thing that got them noticed, and that's what allowed the company to really take off.
8:33 am
you will love these deals. depending on the assortment that you choose, these start at $26.50, but today only for "gma" viewers, slashed in half, so really just starting at $13.25. [ cheers and applause ] >> yay for soy delicious. okay, next up, i love this company too, a new one that we found. this is called by lilla started again by two best friends. i love that theme. michele and colette born both in colombia, didn't know each other well very well there but moved here and became really good friends. they both had phenomenal careers and got married and decided to quit those careers and ultimately with three kids, both have three kids under 10 years old, realized rlths you know, we're itching to use our brain to make some money. they started this company to rebel against the ordinary black elastic that everyone has around their wrist, beautiful jewelry on then an ugly black elastic around your hair.
8:34 am
let's create a beautiful black elastic, and it started as a hobby. they were selling at a school bazaar fund-raisers to make money and have fun and turned into a very serious business. they're now -- they have a lot of media coverage from the top editors. they're sold in spas, boutiques, just a really beautiful assortment. there's a variety of different ones to choose from, two, five and seven-packs. a great deal on these too. normally they start at $15, today only everything is slashed in half, so really starts at $7.50. by lilla. last but not least, we take the cake. a really cool business. it was a husband and wife team who own this business. and interestingly, this is a company that lori bought about 14 years ago when she went into a bakery and loved the cake for her son's third birthday and said, i'm not just going to take the cake but buy the bakery, so for $72,000 she bought the bakery. she does not bake but does all
8:35 am
the sales and marketing and she leaves the baking to the pros. everything is made fresh. no preservatives. all made by hand. it's been in oprah's favorite thing and we've got two beautiful favorites here. two bundt cakes that come in the most gorgeous packaging. there's the key lime, because, of course, we're in miami that comes with this amazing key lime frosting that you'll get, as well as the chocolate fudge chip ganache, i'm like messing it all up, but it's phenomenal. you'll love this, normally $56 slashed in half. you get both for $28. [ cheers and applause ] and, robin, robin, you know that's -- >> i'm just saying, i'm just watching amy devour the bundt cakes. i mean, the sparks are flying over there. >> worth every calorie. >> hey, tory, it's time for that surprise for the owner of we take the cake. tell us more about lori. >> it is. okay, so lori is here with her team, and i got the heat dancers
8:36 am
to come on in here too, so let me tell you something about lori. before i can tell you about that, lori believes so strongly that cake is not just dessert, cake is about a celebration. it's a symbol of celebration of life, of happiness, of family and friends. lori does something really cool. she donates a cake to the broward's children hospital every time a child ends their chemo treatment, so they call it the end of chemo cake celebration, and you do a dozen of those a year. that was a big -- [ cheers and applause ] she does about a dozen of those a year. so when our sponsor vistaprint heard this, when we told them your story, they said they wanted to make it possible for you to extend the celebration beyond end of chemo to be able to celebrate all the milestones that sick children have in the hospital, birthdays, proms, holidays, special events, so that $10,000 is for you and you guys since you're the bakers, you guys, they make the magic happen. so you'll be able to give cakes all year round. >> thank you so much. that is phenomenal.
8:37 am
we are so excited to be a part of the celebration with these kids, and the fact that we can now, you know, have more parties and extend this, awesome. >> awesome. >> thank you so much. >> we think it's awesome too and we think what you do is awesome and we think this miami crowd is awesome. [ cheers and applause ] as everybody is going home -- they don't even know why they're cheering but they're all going home with something from all the companies. >> i don't think we'll get you back, tory. i think you're on the road, and you're going to stay there. having so much fun. great cake. all the good that lori does, as well. give her a big hug for us. get the codes and links for "deals & steals" on wheels at on yahoo! plus a special deal you can only find on "gma's" twitter page and tomorrow she's going to hit the road again, hall of fame. oh, no, the rock & roll hall of fame, cleveland. you know a little about that. >> i do. >> can you find out how to join her there on our website, so if you're there in the cleveland area and you want to

8:39 am
years regaining her sight after undergoing surgery on her spine stunning doctors and the entire medical field. abc's gio benitez is here with her story. this truly is remarkable. >> reporter: unbelievable. good morning to you. for 21 years she didn't even know what her seven grandchildren looked like or even her cat and dog until now, and this morning she says she's convinced this is an act of god. >> in the mornings i get up and i look out here and the sun is coming through the trees and the beans is coming down. >> reporter: describing the scenery may seem ordinary, but for mary ann franco, it's a sight to behold. for more than two decades, mary ann was legally blind after suffering a bad car accident in 1995. it took another accident more than 20 years later to cause what she calls an act of god. after falling down in her florida home, she received surgery on her spine to alleviate pain in her neck and arm, and when she woke up, a miracle.
8:40 am
>> i said, lady, you with all that purple on you, i says, get over here and give me something for pain, and my niece says, what did you say, mary? >> reporter: all of a sudden mary ann could see. neurosurgeon john afshar of martin health system who conducted the surgery says he's never seen anything like it. >> i really don't have a scientific explanation. >> reporter: his theory? >> mrs. franco's vision was impaired from her accident 20 years ago and it could have been a result of the artery being kinked, and then when we performed the surgery itself, we unknowingly probably unkinked that vessel, re-established blood flow and, therefore, she could have regained her vision. >> really good to see you. >> oh, 6, 2, 9, 2, 5. >> that's not bad, 20/50. >> reporter: and if you think mary ann regaining sight is incredible, get this, she says she was color-blind before her accident and now she cannot only see but in color too.
8:41 am
>> you're wearing blue and brown and your tie is kind of brownish. yeah, you're so handsome. >> oh, thank you. >> what a sweet woman, and mary ann's daughter recently flew in from michigan to see her mom, and mary ann, she just couldn't stop talking about her daughter's appearance. she says she hopes to truly see the rest of her family this summer. >> oh, i can't wait for her to meet her grandchildren. that's such a unique experience. >> isn't that amazing? she has two great grandchildren. she's going to see them for the first time. >> thanks for bringing that to us, gio. coming up next on "gma," as you save for college how to make sure you cover everything from tuition to textbooks, it's all coming up next.
