Guys, someone associated with The Biggest Loser contacted me a couple days ago, saying the show is now (and has been for some time) looking for a powerlifter who’s
a) technically obese (BMI of 30+)
b) good-looking in a wholesome, non-threatening kind of way
c) interested in losing a lot of weight.
This page has info on what they’re looking for in general:
I don’t know much about reality shows. I think I’m one of the few people in America who can honestly say I’ve never seen an entire episode of one. But if they’re looking for a powerlifter, I think it’d be cool to see a real T-man get the shot.
If you’re interested, send an email to: email@example.com
That goes to Pete Thomas, who was a winning contestant on the show and helps the producers find new talent.
This is from Pete, explaining how to address the email and what you need to include in it:
Put the following in the email:
Subject Line of email:
Biggest Loser Casting (Gender) Name / Age / Weight /
Body of Message:
Include a clear picture in the email or a link to a video of yourself and a few lines about yourself such as,
Name / Weight / How much you want to Lose etc / Any relatives that are overweight? / Why you want to be on the show.
I will pass it along to the casting directors who may ask you to A) come to a open casting call B) Come directly to a private interview C) nothing.
I don’t have any power with the network, I can just pass it along to the powers that be.
That’s everything I know.
If you’re interested, it certainly seems like a unique opportunity. If you know anyone else who might be interested, please pass it along. And feel free to post this in other T-Nation forums.
If anybody pursues this and gets an audition for the show, please send me a PM and keep me updated. Thanks, and good luck to anyone who’s interested!
