Eyeworks USA, the producers of the hit “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition,” is beginning a nationwide tour to 13 cities across the country in search of participants for Season four of the show. Along the way, they will be stopping in Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Austin, Atlanta, Denver, Dallas, Nashville, Phoenix, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Jackson (MS), Chicago and Los Angeles.
Although this may not be in your immediate area, they 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 following cities or send in a home tape.
“Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” - The hit series returns for season three as transformational specialist Chris Powell, author of the New York Times bestseller, “Choose to Lose,” documents the amazing makeover of 15 courageous, “super obese” people who, in an unprecedented 365 days, set out to safely lose up to half of their body weight, ultimately revealing an amazing metamorphosis. In each of the 13 stand-alone, two-hour episodes, the participants undergo a transformation not only of their bodies, but of who they are as individuals. By assuring they have the proper nourishment and exercise movement, Powell provides a fresh perspective to individuals whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight. He guides each of the participants through their transformation process by moving into their homes with their families or loved ones.
The upcoming season is filled with remarkable and eye-opening changes, including twins who work together to shed weight, a married couple, and an inspirational story of an amputee who worked to shed the weight he gained after losing his limb. From the producers of ABC’s new celebrity diving series, “Splash,” “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” is executive-produced by JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Matt Assmus, and Brant Pinvidic. The series is produced by Eyeworks USA. “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” premiers Tuesday, May 28 from 8 to 10 p.m.
