In a unique, non-competitive show about weight loss “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” documents the amazing makeover of courageous, “super obese” people who, in an unprecedented 365 days, set out to safely lose half of their body weight, ultimately revealing an amazing metamorphosis. The term “super obese” is used to define those who exceed their estimated ideal weight by approximately 225 percent and who are roughly 200 pounds or more overweight.
Trainer and transformation specialist Chris Powell (“The 650-Pound Virgin”) guides each of the eight participants through their transformation process by moving into their homes with their families or loved ones. By assuring that they have the proper nourishment and exercise movement, Chris will provide a fresh perspective to individuals whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight.
In each of the one-hour episodes, the participants undergo a transformation not only of their bodies, but of who they are as individuals. “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” will chronicle each participant’s journey in a stand-alone episode as they go about reclaiming his or her life.
We're beginning a nationwide tour to 9 cities across the country in search of participants for season 3 of the show. Along the way we will be stopping in Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee. Although this may not be in your immediate area, we are hoping to have some candidates travel the short distance to meet with us in an attempt to change their lives.
Candidates are asked to either attend an open call in one of the cities or send in a home tape.
Information about how to apply can be found on the official casting website at www.extrememakeovercasting.com.
