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 holding auditions at Planet Fitness in Charlotte on Saturday.

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.
