Compared to some Western countries (ahem, US), Taiwan’s residents are beanpole-skinny, however perhaps there’s some folks out there carrying around a few extra pounds they’d like to shed who also want a shot at reality-TV stardom!
The Asian edition of the hit weight-loss reality show, The Biggest Loser, is currently holding auditions for Season 2. Through July 5th, interested applicants may send in their applications online at www.biggestloserasia.com. The show’s winner, the “biggest loser”, stands to win US$100,000.
The requirements: “Applicants must be citizens and residents of Asia between 18-55 years old and speak English fluently. All must have the desire, passion and commitment to lose weight once and for all to gain a healthy body and ultimately, a new lease of life.”
You can watch the past season of Biggest Loser Asia on the Hallmark Channel (on Chunghwa Telecom’s MOD in Taiwan).
