ABC's Extreme Weight Loss Open Casting Call Tour to Come to the Valley Tomorrow

If you've ever seen the show, then you know how impressive the transformations are in ABC's Extreme Weight Loss. Each two-hour episode tells the story on one person's journey, with the help of trainer Chris Powell, to lose half his or her body weight in a year.

And though the show's fourth season hasn't even aired yet, casting already has begun for season five. The show's 13-city casting tour arrives in the Valley this weekend in search for candidates to undergo a full physical -- and often mental -- makeover. Here are the details.

The open casting call will be held at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill in Peoria this Saturday, February 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In order to participate in the show you must be 18 years or older as of March 1, 2014, and you must be a legal U.S. resident.

You can pre-register for the open casting call online, though it's not required. It's recommend that those interested in being on the show also submit a video application in addition to going to the casting call.

You'll need to bring a non-returnable recent photo of yourself and a pen, and you're encouraged to bring family and friends along, too. It's also suggested to bring water and snacks as you'll be waiting in line for a while.
