NBC's "Biggest Loser" show returns for a 14th season this Fall and there's an open casting call for contestants next Saturday in the Chicago area.

The open casting calls typically involve a lot of people showing up for interviews. We talked with the Biggest Loser Casting Director, Hollan Weathers, by Skype, about what kind of contestant the program is looking for.

Hollan said, "Nurses, firefighters, sanitation workers, you know, anybody that has 85 plus pounds to lose. People that have a good personality, people that have a story to tell, and everybody has a story to tell, and, just anybody that's ready to change their lives."

We can't promise to get you on the show, but we can help. If you want to audition for "The Biggest Loser" next Saturday in Downer's Grove, Illinois, we are giving away four "front of the line" passes for Saturdays' open casting call, so you'll hopefully have a shorter wait.
