‘Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition Season 3’ now casting

In a unique, non-competitive show about weight loss “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” documents the amazing makeover of courageous, obese people who, in an unprecedented 365 days, set out to safely lose half of their body weight, ultimately revealing an amazing metamorphosis.

Trainer and transformation specialist Chris Powell (“The 650-Pound Virgin”) guides each participant 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.

Casting directors are looking for outgoing charismatic individuals who have the burning desire to make the transformation, physically and mentally. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and a legal resident of the United States.

We’re beginning a nationwide tour to nine cities across the country in search of participants for season three of the show. Candidates are asked to either attend an open call in one of the following cities or send in a home tape. Information about how to apply can be found on the official casting website at www.extrememakeovercasting.com.
