Biggest Loser Casting New Trainers

Looks like the contestants won’t be the only new faces at the Biggest Loser ranch in season eight. NBC has announced it is looking for certified personal trainers who “are ready to change someone’s life forever.” No word yet on whether Bob and/or Jillian are being replaced, or if they will stay on to welcome the new trainer(s). Our NBC contact said “we’re just keeping creative options open for next season.”

To apply, you should meet these requirements:

  • Must be certified
  • Must provide references
  • Nutritional credentials a plus
  • Experience with overweight clients
  • Strong personality
  • At least 18-years-old
  • Legal U.S. Resident

Live casting calls for the trainer auditions and Season 8 contestants are taking place in the following cities and dates:

  • February 21: NYC, OKC, Louisville, Chicago
  • Febuary 28: Dallas, Detroit, Nashville, Charlotte
  • March 7: Houston, Miami, Columbus, Phoenix
  • March 14: LA, San Diego

You’ll find further details and an application at NBC.

They better NOT take Jillian(my fav) or Bob off!!!! I would Like a 3rd trainer no more then 3 but don't takeBob or Jil off!! I don't watch America Idol anymore because of the 4th judge!! If they take Jillian off she is and will always be my favorite trainer!! Plus they will always know how to train people!! Can't wait for a new trainer, but I want Bob and Jillian to stay!!

Hopefully they’re just replacing Kim. She hasn’t been seen on BL since she made one of her own team members turn against her in season 4. That was also the last time BL was singles and not couples.

If Jillian And Bob leave the show it will not be near as good as it is now.
I think Jillian is the best trainer ever!
Please keep them on!

Oh man! I really hope they don’t get rid of Bob & Jillian. That is one of the biggest attraction of the show. I’m sure that there are other well-qualified trainers out there. But, Bob & Jillian have become the symbol of the show. The fans are following them!

I really love watching the show! I really don’t think they should replace the trainers. If Jillian isn’t on the show I don’t know if I will watch it anymore. She is a kick A– trainer and she knows what she is doing she digs deep and gets to the bottom of what is happening with each person. THEY CAN NOT MAKE IT WITHOUT JILLIAN.
Bob is great as well I am just a Jillian fan!

I would really like to see Tony Horton of P90X fame there. That would be cool.

I am a huge fan of Bob. He is a wonderful trainer and the contestants all love him. He does not need to yell and swear at the contestants to get them motivated (With the exception of Joelle LOL). If they get rid of Bob and Jillian they will lose a large fan base. BUT sometimes it takes change to keep ratings up.
