How to get on the Biggest Loser
One question that I get emailed about more than almost anything else lately is “How can I get on the Biggest Loser?”
I know that many people are interested in the show, after 7 or 8 seasons now people have seen so many success stories on the Biggest Loser that they can’t help but think that there is no way that they can lose the they want to lose without getting on the biggest loser.
I for one don’t believe that at all, no matter if you want to lose 20 in one month or lose 100 pounds in a year there are always ways to lose the without going on a TV show. Really! Believe it.
How to get on the Biggest Loser
Ok, now after that if you really want to know how to get on the Biggest Loser I have a plan that won’t guarantee anything but I think will improve your chances to get on the Biggest Loser.
Just to let you know, you need to be a resident of the US to get in. no Canadians or others allowed
Before you get started go to the Biggest Loser Casting page. Click here for entry rules and procedure.
First of all, you have to fill out an application form at the NBC site and send in a video. As you can imagine there are quite a few people trying to get on the Biggest Loser and the only way that the people in the casting department can narrow down this huge list is by kicking people off the list or finding exceptional people.
The only way that you can be chosen for the Biggest Loser is to have an impressive application and video, there is no other way to make an impression.
Biggest Loser Application Tips
The application is long, 9 pages in fact so print out a couple of copies. Make one rough copy with lots of notes and give yourself at least a couple of days to really lay out what is important and what will be qualities that set you apart from everyone else trying to get on the Biggest Loser.
After you have filled out all the notes then get another copy of the application and print all the answers very clearly in the space provided. Keep your answers very clear and direct, do not use any unnecessary words, this is one of only two ways to impress those judges.
Biggest Loser Video Tips
The video that you make is going to be the real way of setting yourself apart from all of the other people trying to get on the Biggest Loser TV Show. Try to have the best production quality that you can.
As far as the length of video make sure that it is not any longer than 10 minutes. As you can imagine there are a lot of videos to get through and the people casting the Biggest Loser are going to only want to spend a few minutes and if they have not been caught by you by then they will move on to the next tape.
Make sure that your video is fairly closeup, you do not want to be too far away from the camera and no one should have to strain to hear what you have to say.
Try to be very upbeat, not like you are crazy but on the other hand, remember that they casters for the Biggest Loser are going to be looking for people that are fun and interesting to watch. If you are just heavy but will not draw in viewers then people will not want to tune into the show, so you will not be chosen.
Make sure you do wardrobe changes. Show the casting people on the Biggest Loser what you look like in a bathing suit, workout clothes, regular clothes and this way that will also get a feeling for what you are like.
Finally, let the viewers of your video know what you are like and why you should be on the show. which helps you to be very clear as to why you need to be on the show, your past successes and failures, your weight loss history and how you want to make the change for you and the people around you.
Will you get on the Biggest Loser?
As you probably know that chances of getting on the Biggest Loser are slim but unlike a lottery they are going to pick 16 people every season so there is a chance if you present yourself well to actually get on the show.
Good Luck, if you do get on the Biggest Loser leave a comment and let us know.
