AUSTIN, Texas â July 14, 2011 â NBCâs popular reality series âThe Biggest Loserâ is
launching a 13-city cross-country search to find new contestants for the next edition of the hit
show. They will be stopping in Austin, Texas along the way. Individuals and teams of two who
have at least 85 lbs. to lose are encouraged to apply for the new season, which will begin airing
in January, 2012.
Casting producers are looking for outgoing and charismatic teams of two and individuals who
have the personality, desire and competitive edge to vie for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to
lose weight, change their lives forever and compete for a grand prize of $250,000. Candidates
must be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of the United States.
People are asked to not line up prior to three hours before the start of the casting call. Candidates
are encouraged to bring a non-returnable photo of themselves (and their partners if applying as a
team). Casting call applications will be provided on-site.
"We are thrilled that The Biggest Loser has decided to hold a casting call in Austin," said Mayor
Lee Leffingwell. "Although we are sometimes hailed as a fit city, obesity is a problem in our
community just like in so many others across the country. This is an excellent opportunity for
Austinites to step up and challenge themselves to lose weight and get healthy. I encourage
folks who'd like some extra inspiration to try out for the show."
