Eyeworks USA, the producers of the hit Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, is beginning a nationwide tour to 13 cities across the country in search of participants for season four of the show. Candidates are asked to either attend an open call in one of the following cities or send in a home tape: Salt Lake City, Utah; Milwaukee; Austin, Texas; Atlanta; Denver; Dallas; Nashville, Tenn.; Phoenix, Ariz.; St. Louis; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Jackson, Miss.; Chicago; and Los Angeles.
In Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, transformational specialist Chris Powell, author of the New York Times best-seller Choose to Lose, documents the amazing makeover of courageous, “super obese” people who, in an unprecedented 365 days, set out to safely lose up to half of their body weight, ultimately revealing an amazing metamorphosis. In each episode, a participant undergoes a transformation not only of their bodies, but of who they are as individuals.
By assuring they have the proper nourishment and exercise movement, Powell provides a fresh perspective to individuals whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight. He guides each of the participants through their transformation process by moving into their homes with their families or loved ones.
Information about how to apply can be found on the official casting website at www.extrememakeovercasting.com. Casting call attendees should bring a nonreturnable photo. Casting Call Applications will be provided.
