We have a location for the Aug. 20 auditions in Orlando for “The Biggest Loser.” The site this year is the groove at Universal CityWalk at Universal Orlando Resort, 6000 Universal Blvd. They will be there from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., NBC said. The weight-loss series is traveling to 13 cities this summer to audition contestants for the 13th edition that debuts in January. “Individuals and teams of two who have at least 85 lbs. to lose are encouraged to apply for the new season,” NBC has said. Hopefuls must be 18 and legal residents of the United States. The contestants will compete for a grand prize of $250,000.
On Saturday, the show will visit Austin, Texas; Newark, N.J.; and Detroit. On Aug. 6, the stops are Charlotte, N.C.; Washington; and Atlanta. On Aug. 13, the show will visit St. Louis, Salt Lake City and Phoenix. The other stops on Aug. 20 are Chicago and Dallas. The last stop will be Los Angeles on Aug. 27.
Alison Sweeney is the host of “The Biggest Loser.” In the 12th edition, which airs in the fall, contestants will work with professional trainers Bob Harper, Anna Kournikova and Dolvett Quince. That season starts Sept. 20 on WESH-Channel 2.
