  1. Attend an open casting calls. The first 500 people are guaranteed to be auditioned but there is no guarantee past that amount. There are various locations around the United States that are hosting the open casting calls. They will call in groups of like six people or so at a time into a room and ask you questions. Be prepared to answer their questions in a quick but memorable way. Practice ahead of time.

  2. You can fill out an application and send it along with a 10 minute video of yourself (and your partner if they are auditioning for pairs). You'll also be asked to include a photograph (non returnable) of each person applying to become a contestant on The Biggest Loser. It is helpful if you bring this information along with you if you are auditioning in person as well.

  3. Go to and look under the casting link to get more information on locations, times, application and address. They are constantly updating dates and audition locations. If you truly wish to become a contestant on The Biggest Loser television show, you should bookmark that page and visit it regularly.

  4. If they like you, they will ask for you to come for a second interview. Here, you will have the opportunity to go solo in your interview.

  5. If you pass all the interview steps, they will ask that you go through a series of physical and mental evaluations by professionals of their choosing and on their tab. You'll get the best physicals of your life! They won't be expecting someone suffering from obesity to be in optimum health but you will need to be able to show that you are able to keep up with the rigors of the show and The Biggest Loser trainers.

  6. Tip

    Be yourself! Don't be afraid to show your personality. It's vital for the show. Know that there are THOUSANDS applying. The odds in numbers alone are against you but the fact that you put your best effort into trying will reap rewards even if you don't get to be a contestant. I've lost 40lbs since my eyes were opened through the process.


    Don't lie on your application in the hopes it will get you in. It can be harmful to yourself and/or others in the end.
