ABC's 'Extreme Weight Loss' takes someone who needs to lose 50 percent of their body weight and helps them get in shape. This is an experience someone from Nebraska could have.
"We're looking for people who have the burning desire to change, losing weight is hard and we want people who are committed, who are ready to work out 365 days with Chris and Heidi Powell," casting director Vanessa Bond said.
They're also looking for someone with a story to tell.
"Why they're ready to lose the weight, how they gained the weight, whether they've always been heavy or if something impacted their weight–gain, we want to hear their story," Bond said.
Hundreds of people will be lining up at the Mrs. B's Clearance Center in Omaha, Saturday, for their chance to be on the show. It all starts at 10 a.m.
This weight loss show isn't like some of the others. Participants aren't competing with one another and the casting call is more like a group discussion rather than an audition.
"We want them to have a positive experience, there's no mean judges saying anything, it's a very fun and exciting time for everyone," Bond said.
Casting directors said they plan to see everyone by 4 p.m.
You must be 18 or older to be on the show, but you can bring any loved ones or friends who are younger.
