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. They will be stopping in St. Louis, Missouri, 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.
The casting call for the St. Louis area will take place on Saturday, Aug. 13 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Chesterfield Mall, 291 Chesterfield Mall (at the intersection of Highway 40 and Clarkson Rd.)
For those who are unable to attend a casting call, information on how to apply to the show and submit a videotape if you cannot attend is available on http://www.thebiggestlosercasting.com/ .
Casting producers are also making stops in Austin, Dallas, the New York tri-state area, Detroit, Charlotte, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Chicago, Orlando, Los Angeles and Washington, DC.
