Greetings Floridians! Jessica here with some exciting news >>  NBC's "The Biggest Loser" will be hosting an Open Casting Call for Season 9 of the weight loss reality show.  

Where you ask? Well, right here in Tampa Bay!!!  The Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center will be the venue for this Open Casting Call to be held on Saturday, June 27th from 10AM to 6PM.  Casting personnel will do their best to see the first 500 people, but ask that a line does not form more than 3 hours prior to the auditions.

They are looking for family member teams of 2, which could include parent/child, siblings, married couples, cousins, and in-laws... but if you don't have a partner you may still audition on your own.  Producers are asking for participants with outgoing personalities, as well as the want, desire, and compepitive edge to vie for this once in a lifetime opporunity to change your lives AND compete for $250,000!!!

If you and a family member each have at least 100 lbs. to lose and are ready to change your life forever ~ this Tampa Bay event is for you!  For more information, or if you cannot attend the auditions, visit <

That's all the Tampa Bay entertainment news for now, but Good Luck everyone -- I hope to see a Tampa Bay Team on Season 9 of The Biggest Loser!!!
