|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
NBC’s popular reality series “The Biggest Loser” is launching a 13-city cross-country search to find new contestants for the next edition of the hit show and will be stopping in Denver Saturday, March 5 along the way. The casting call will be held from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at Grizzly Rose.
Individuals and teams of two who have at least 100 pounds to lose are encouraged to apply for the new season, which will air in the fall of 2011.
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 not to line up prior to three hours before the start of the open call. Candidates should bring a non-returnable photo of themselves (and their partners if applying as a team). If a partner cannot attend, take a photo of them. The casting team will provide applications; applicants do not need the one on the website for the casting call.
Season 11 is currently airing Tuesday nights at 7p.m. on NBC.
Alison Sweeney is the host of “The Biggest Loser,” which challenges and encourages overweight contestants to shed pounds in a safe and recommended manner through comprehensive diet and exercise as they compete for a grand prize of $250,000. The unscripted and life-altering series gathers contestants from across the country to face real-life temptations, while being provided with approved weight-loss skills and resources in an effort to help them transform their bodies, health and—ultimately—their lives.
Contestants work out under the supervision of professional trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels.
