BURBANK, CA � June 24, 2008 � NBC's popular reality series "The Biggest Loser" is launching an 11-city, cross-country search to find new contestants for season seven of the hit show. They are looking for outgoing and charismatic teams of two who have the personality, desire and competitive edge to vie for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lose weight, change their lives forever and compete for a grand prize of $250,000. Season six of the series -- "The Biggest Loser: Families" � will premiere in the fall and will feature husband-and-wife teams and parent-adult child teams.

Teams for season seven of the show can include family members (siblings, cousins, grandparents, parent and adult child, etc.), spouses, dating or engaged couples, co-workers, former teammates or athletes, best friends, college students and retirees. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of the United States.

While they will try to see everyone, "The Biggest Loser" casting teams guarantee the first 500 people in line will be seen. People will not be allowed to line up prior to three hours before the start of the open call. Candidates should bring a non-returnable photo of themselves and their partners.

Alison Sweeney ("Days of Our Lives") is the host of "The Biggest Loser," which challenges and encourages overweight contestants to shed pounds in a safe and recommended manner through comprehensive diet and exercise as they compete for a grand prize of $250,000. The unscripted and life-altering series gathers contestants from across the country to face real-life temptations, while being provided with approved weight-loss skills and resources in an effort to help them transform their bodies, health -- and ultimately -- their lives.

Ben Silverman (NBC's "The Office," "Ugly Betty"), Dave Broome ("A Model Life with Petra Nemcova," "Tsunami Aid: A Concert of Hope"), JD Roth ("Age of Love," "Beauty and the Geek"), Todd A.
