TBL Casting Call

For those of you brave enough to let Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper kick your ass around the gym while America judges from its couches, The Biggest Loser is now casting for season 8. Details in the linky. I personally won't be trying out because
  1. I don't think I'd make a very compelling story;
  2. I doubt I'd be what they want for TV personality;
  3. I'm not in a position to just stop school during my final semester of graduate work and be on a TV show for a few months; and
  4. I've kinda shot myself in the foot by already losing this much anyhow. This season's casting (in comparison with the past couple) clearly demonstrates that the producers are looking for people with much more extremely dire need to lose weight.
That said, if any of you out there are struggling with this weight loss business and want to share your story with a national audience, by all means, give it a shot. Be aware, though, that the past 2 casting calls have drawn more than half a million applicants each.

Good luck! I'll be watchin for ya!

By the time they finish casting & filming both of us will be either at goal or have been sitting at goal for a while.

I saw you on the WW boards.
Really, like the blog!
I've posted this like 3 times on the board already, and never got a response (maybe you don't want to respond-but hopefully you just didn't see them): I go to KUMC too!

Don't worry I won't like awkwardly stalk you on campus or anything, I just thought it was funny!

See ya around on the boards!
