"Biggest Loser" Hosts Casting Call in Phoenix

In 2008, Ali Vincent lost 112 pounds and won $250,000. 

The then-32-year-old from Mesa was a cast member on The Biggest Loser and became the show's first female winner.

Today, she's a speaker, spokeswoman, author, and soon-to-be creator of her own charitable foundation. And she says it all started with an open casting call in Phoenix. 

This weekend, NBC's bringing its big casting crew back to town and looking for contestants for the next season. Fair warning: it's not easy, and you might not someday create a charitable foundation, but you definitely could trade a ton of weight for some serious cash.

The Biggest Loser crew will be at Superstition Springs Center in Mesa from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Saturday, August 13. 

 The show's organizers say you don't need to worry about filling out an application or videotaping a submission. Just show up, fill out a form, and convince the crew you can lose at least 85 lbs.
