Biggest Loser is Casting Season 10!!

Many of you message me about getting on the show – well here is your opportunity! Biggest Loser is now casting season 10!

My tips and advice for you—-

1) BE YOURSELF – casting will know if you are “putting on a show” or are “faking it”

2) Don’t try to make yourself look slim! I remember shopping for my open call and I was trying to find a nice pair of dark jeans and black top! After the open call, I realized I shouldn’t of tried to make myself look smaller but it happened out of habit.

3) Be comfortable speaking in front of a few people – if you aren’t, start practicing!

4) Know why you want this opportunity – how will it better your life, why can’t you do it by yourself, what has your weight held you back from(if anything at all)…Be ready with your 30 second elevator speech

5) Arrive early to open call and be considerate to those around you – they could be with you on the ranch OR you can make new friends and start the journey together!

6) Bring some snacks with you especially if you are a person who gets irritable if you don’t eat – you want casting to see the happy you, not the all pissed off you because you haven’t eaten in 5 hours!

7) Bring some pictures(full body showing – not hiding behind kids or friends) with you that you are okay with giving up – once casting gets them you most likely will not be getting them back!

8) If you don’t have any pictures that are full body – take them now and get them developed! Remember color looks better on camera.

CASTING CALL TIPS!

The most common question I’m asked is “How can I get noticed? The answer is this; JUST BE YOURSELF.
Well, what does be yourself mean?
Think of this; Who is the person you are when you hang out with your friends and family?
That’s who we want to see!

An important thing to remember is that you will have a very limited amount of time with us.
Speak up and show us your wonderful personality!
It’s your moment to shine so bring your A game and you will surely get noticed. It’s TV – speak up and don’t be shy – say what’s on your mind – we like opinionated and outgoing people for reality TV shows!

What should I wear? Dress to look your best, but try not to wear clothes that are too slimming. I know, it’s a contradiction but then again it’s TV. We don’t make it , we just cast it.

Bring a current and clear photo of you with your name, contact phone number, address and email written clearly on the back. We will be KEEPING this photo and you will not be getting it back. Ever.

You will be required to fill out a short application when you arrive at the casting call…this is different than the one you print off the website, so whether you print one ahead of time or not, you will still have to fill out the one you receive at the open call.

Feel free to bring any 100+lbs overweight friends and family with you that might want to be on the show. It has yet to be decided whether we will be casting singles or teams for next season so better to be prepared! If you don’t have a partner…YOU DEFINITELY SHOULD STILL COME because we are ALWAYS looking for great individuals for the show!

Be prepared to wait in line. Wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing and bring a book or even a folding chair with you if you like.

You’ll meet many fantastic people in line and you might even make some new friends. Who knows, you might even find romance! It happens.

Please make sure that you eat before you arrive and/or bring some healthy snacks with you as well as water.

IMPORTANT: If you are coming from out of town you should be prepared to either stay in town a day or two extra or be willing to drive back to your casting call city. This is because if you are selected to move forward in the casting process, we will do a one on one interview with you within a couple of days. We generally try to book appointments from those people from 5+ hrs away the next day (Sunday) or on Monday if at all possible. These interviews usually last between 20min-1hr.

*Again, Please bring a non-returnable recent photo of any size that we can put with your application. Please write your name and contact info on the back of it

*You do not need to print the application off the website – We will have a shorter one for you to fill out at the casting call

*Come dressed to impress and not like you just rolled out of bed & Dress weather appropriate

*You can find fun casting tips by show casting directors at www.youtube.com/blcastingteam or by following us on Twitter @BLCastingteam

Good Luck!
