'The Biggest Loser' is casting for their newest season, and they're looking for contestants from Utica and central New York for their virtual casting sessions.

'The Biggest Loser' television show, which challenges contestants to lose significant amounts of weight for a large cash prize, has been controversial. In spite of that, the show is coming back for a new season, and they could be looking for you.

Last season’s winner, Jim DiBattista, lost 144 pounds while competing on the show, according to producers.

In past years, there have been open casting calls in New York, but coronavirus is preventing that from happening this year. Instead, "The Biggest Loser' is conducting 'virtual casting.'
