DALLAS, Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NBC's popular reality series "The Biggest Loser" is once again launching a cross-country search to find new contestants for Season 12 of the hit show. Individuals and teams of two who have at least 100 pounds to lose are encouraged to apply for the new season. Auditions in Dallas will take place Saturday, March 12, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Methodist Dallas Medical Center, 1441 N. Beckley Ave. in the Hitt Auditorium. The auditorium is located in the Service Building near the intersection of Colorado Boulevard and Bishop Avenue.
In addition to the opportunity to be cast for the show, each contestant for NBC's "The Biggest Loser" at Methodist Dallas Medical Center will be a winner with a head start to good health. Methodist Dallas will offer a free health fair for contestants featuring motivating speakers with valuable tips on different aspects of good health, healthy cooking tips, simple fitness and motion exercises, and an opportunity to interact with professionals and organizations that will share ways to lead a healthier lifestyle.
"The Biggest Loser" Season 12 debuts in the fall of 2011.
