Extreme Makeover casting comes to WI


FRANKLIN (WKOW) -- Dozens of people from Wisconsin who want to lose weight auditioned for a popular reality TV show on Saturday.

People lined up in Franklin early Saturday morning, for a chance to get an audition on Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition. The show's producers are looking for people who need to lose at least 50 percent of their body weight.

One man drove from Iowa, saying he's looking for a chance to change his life.

"With my weight and everything I figured this is something I need to do to make myself have a better lifestyle, with my weight issues that I have," says Jason Woods, who auditioned this weekend.

The show is casting 12 people to dedicate a year of their life to get fit.
