"Biggest Loser" $100,000 winner seeks Detroit couple for Season 6
I recently shared with you about the auditions for the upcoming Season 6 of "The Biggest Loser" which have since come and gone.
But, don't be sad!
Thanks to Season 2 "Biggest Loser" $100,000 winner Pete Thomas, who lost 185 pounds thanks to personal trainer Jillian Michaels and the life-changing hit NBC television weight loss reality show, he now wants to give a two-person team from the Detroit, Michigan area a chance to be on the next season of the show set to air in the Fall 2008.
Pete Thomas has teamed up with the show's producers to host a surprise audition in his local area to be held on Saturday, March 22, 2008, at Gardner-White Furniture in Macomb, Michigan. Thomas will be there to offer his support and suggestions for others who want to be on the show. He shared in my interview with him late last year some of the crazy things he did to get noticed and he's gonna tell these potential contestants what they need to do to grab the attention of the casting company, too.
"The casting team for The Biggest Loser still talk about the funky video my wife and I sent in for the show," Thomas said. "My goal is to help people prepare for the audition in such a way that they get noticed."
In fact, Pete has posted a couple of columns along these lines at his WinningMan.com web site such as "How To Become a Contestant On The Biggest Loser" and even "How To Totally Mess Up Your Biggest Loser Reality Show Casting Audition." Since he is from that area, Pete believes it's time for the show to feature a dynamic couple who will exhibit the same kind of character qualities that he showed in Season 2.
"Detroit has always been a city loaded with personality," Thomas exclaimed. "We want to see talented people with very strong personalities who may have more than a few pounds to lose."
Obviously a huge fan of the show because of what it did for his life, Pete is seeking to instill that enthusiasm for "The Biggest Loser" into the Motor City residents and beyond.
"I want to get Michigan hooked on the show so that people can benefit from the life-changing weight loss knowledge that I learned at the [Biggest Loser] Ranch," he stated. "That's why I personally contacted the network and got them to agree to a previously unscheduled open casting call."
But he's REALLY hoping for a Detroit couple to step up and take advantage of this.
"NBC really wants a team from Detroit, so let's show them what we've got!" Thomas added.
In fact, Thomas is so vested in helping people find the same kind of success that he did with Jillian on "The Biggest Loser," he has created a 10-week class called "Lose it Fast, Lose it Forever" for those people who want to get serious about their weight and health and don't make it on the show. As you know from my interview with him, Pete gives credit to a lower-carb diet along with regular exercise for helping him be as successful in not just losing the weight, but KEEPING IT OFF FOREVER!
So, if you live in the Metro-Detroit area of Michigan and want to have a golden opportunity to be on "The Biggest Loser" set to begin filming very soon for Season 6, then grab yourself a buddy and head on down to 43500 Hayes Road in Macomb, Michigan on Saturday, March 22, 2008, at Gardner-White Furniture from 10am to 4pm. This may be your once-in-a-lifetime chance to be on national television and CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Be sure to tell Pete you heard about this from his friend Jimmy Moore at the "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" blog. :D
