“THE BIGGEST LOSER” LAUNCHING NATIONWIDE SEARCH FOR NEW CONTESTANTS

June 27, 2019—Producers of THE BIGGEST LOSER are launching a national search to find new contestants for the next edition of the life-changing hit series which is slated to debut on USA Network in 2020. 

The team is looking for outgoing and charismatic men and women for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to not only lose weight, but improve their overall wellbeing, as well.

The search kicks off this weekend in three markets across the country—New York/New Jersey, Dallas and Kansas City, KS. Candidates must be looking to lose 100+ pounds and be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of the United States. All contestants must apply online at www.BLCASTING.TV
before attending a local casting call. 

“‘The Biggest Loser’ is much more than a TV show, it’s a movement that for over a decade has inspired so many people across this country to get healthy,” said the show’s head of casting, Allison Kaz. “We are casting people from all walks of life—whether you’re young and want to feel confident, a mom or dad wanting to create healthy patterns or even a former athlete looking to get back into shape, everyone has a different story to tell and a journey to go on.”
