ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss” is having an open call casting in Peoria on Feb. 22, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill located at 9824 W. Northern Avenue.
Contestants will meet with the casting directors in small groups (5 to 10 people), and have an open table discussion. You should bring a non-returnable photo and your personality!
“There is not one specific thing we look for,” said casting director Vanessa Bond. “But in general we are looking for people who have a burning desire to CHANGE. Losing weight is hard, and we want people who are committed to changing their lives.”
Trainers and transformation specialists, Chris and Heidi Powell, explained what makes “Extreme Weight Loss” different from other shows is that you are losing weight over the course of an entire year.
“We set you up for success by transforming your body physically, changing your eating habits, and most importantly preparing you to lose the weight and keep it off!” Chris explained.
