One of the contestants from "Biggest Loser" Season 9 is listed in critical condition at a San Francisco hospital, TMZ has learned -- after plummeting several stories from a building on September 3rd.

It's unclear how he fell -- but sources close to Sam Poueu tell us ... he suffered a pelvic injury, torn ligaments, a punctured lung, and a broken leg during the accident.

According to sources, Sam -- who was a fan favorite on the show last year -- is currently recovering in the ICU -- but while he's listed in critical condition, we're told he can still recognize visitors.

Dr. H from "Biggest Loser" tells us, he can't make specific comments about Sam's current condition -- but claims Sam is doing better every day.

Why can't this sh*t ever happen to Mariah Carey or Tila Tequila?

I watched his season and really liked Sam on the show. I hope makes it out ok. Hearing he fell several stories made me feel as if my stomach dropped.

There's a problem here    

Hmmm ... there are only three ways one mysteriously falls from a window (1) They are smashed on one or more substances (2) Someone showed them the window (3) They decided to take the plunge. Listen up folks, anyone who consents to appear on any type of reality show has a few screws loose to begin with, so this ain't that much of a shocker, ya know?

Like most people in the same situation, I bet he's thinking "damn, I can't workout and I'm going to get fat again."

some people have no empathy at all. I am a member of the support group for Sam...I just wish people would get their facts straight before they start commenting on things they know nothing about
