If you've always wanted to be a part of NBC's The Biggest Loser, your chance is coming to the Chicago area soon.

A nine-city, cross-country search is about to begin to find new contestants for the next edition of the show. Teams of two who both have at least 80 pounds to lose are encouraged to apply.

According to a press release, casting producers are looking for outgoing and charismatic teams to compete for a grand prize of $250,000 and, of course, lose weight in the process. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of the United States.

The casting call will take place Saturday, July 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.at The Biggest Loser Resort located at 250 Schick Road in Bloomingdale.

People will not be allowed to line up prior to three hours before the start of the open call. Candidates should bring a non-returnable photo of themselves and their partners. 

For more information you can check out the NBC casting page or The Biggest Loser website.
