NBC‘s The Biggest Loser won’t be returning until January of 2013, but all of the fans who witnessed the complete nightmare last season can rejoice for the new season. Why? Because the show is looking for more appreciative contestants for the upcoming season! Hooray for not having to deal with anymore Condas! Keep reading for more…
That’s right, the new season of The Biggest Loser on NBC will not include any ungrateful contestants, or at least the casting department is doing their best to avoid that happening again. In a recent interview, supervising casting producer Brandon Nickens told Yahoo news: “For Season 14, we’re doing things a little differently. Instead of looking for someone that meets a certain profile, we’re asking the question, ‘How deserving are they?’ We’re looking for real, genuine people who will appreciate this opportunity to change their lives! It’s really a golden ticket! We spend four to five months searching for the ideal candidates for this show and we listen to their personal stories.”
And the casting team is dead set on keep the dramatics to a minimum for the new season, as Brandon added: “We’re looking for people who are willing to be vulnerable…give in to the process. We’re also looking for strong personalities and positive energy – no drama or conflicts. Our team is really serious about making this a ‘feel-good’ show.” Of course, the show is probably doing so after learning how upset the fans were last season, which eventually led to a ratings drop for the show. Brandon also revealed that the new season will kick off on January 1, 2013 – what a way to start the new year!
Now we can rejoice! Hopefully, this means next season will full of grateful contestants who truly want and deserve to be there!
