The most recent "Biggest Loser" hails from the Chicago suburbs. Could another local be crowned next season?

The NBC weight-loss competition is launching an 11-city search to find new contestants for the next edition. People who have at least 80 pounds to shed are being encouraged to apply. The casting call will swing through Chicago May 4.

Casting producers are looking for "charismatic individuals who have the desire to change their lives forever and vie for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lose weight and compete for a grand prize of $250,000." You must be at least 18 years old. Click here for details on how to apply.

People won't be allowed to line up prior to three hours before the start of the open call. Candidates should bring a non-returnable photo of themselves.
