Wanna Be On ‘The Biggest Loser’ 6? Now Casting Couples!

Wanna be on “The Biggest Loser?” Here’s your chance!

People are always asking me about how to become a contestant on NBC’s weight loss reality show “The Biggest Loser.” Ummm, how the heck am I supposed to know? While I have applied to be on several reality TV shows before–CBS’ “Big Brother” twice, “The Weakest Link” game show, and NBC-TV’s hit “Deal Or No Deal”–I lost my weight in 2004 when “The Biggest Loser” debuted so I never attempted to be on the show (although I think I would have been quite competitive if given the opportunity to do it).

But I have taken a closer look at “The Biggest Loser” application and asked some of the former contestants to share how they got on the show. Take a look at what Season 2 $100,000 at-home winner Pete Thomas said he did to get on the show (the craziness that he did is detailed in #2 of my interview with him). Season 4 contestant Isabeau Miller said she thought 3 Ball Productions, the casting agency for “The Biggest Loser,” is “looking for genuine people who really wanted to lose weight, and of course, had the potential to be even more attractive as slim people.” So use that as your guide if you are interested in being on the show.

Remember, just BE YOURSELF and let your personality shine through (of course, you have to HAVE a personality first, ya know?!). Look at Season 4 contestant Jez Luckett, for example. He set up his own web site with cute little graphics and writings that showed the producers he deserved this golden opportunity to show America he has what it takes.

Of course, personality only gets you so far–the casting directors also want competitiveness. Jim Germanakos, also from Season 4 and the $100,000 at-home winner that year, said in my interview with him that both he and his brother Bill (who was the $250,000 grand prize winner of Season 4) have the competitive juices flowing and had a simple philosophy for the show: “First we try to beat each other and then we try to beat everyone else.” It’s a great template for future contestants to think about.

So do you think you have what it takes to be on Season 6 of “The Biggest Loser” set to begin taping in the early summer 2008 and airing this Fall on NBC? If so, then CLICK HERE to learn more about the open casting calls that are taking place in February and March as well as how you and your teammate (yes, they are doing couples again for Season 6) can make a video telling the casting company why you should be considered for the show. GOOD LUCK!!!
