BIGGEST LOSER... HERE WE COME!!!!!

About a week ago I found out The Biggest Loser was having an open casting call today in Chicago and I immediately called Cameron to tell him the good news. So today him, his friend Andrew, and his Aunt Dori went down and stood in line for 8 hours for the audition process. He said they took a group of about 10 people in at a time and asked questions to the group and you basically had to fight for time. Turns out he made buddies with the interviewer earlier in the day, not even knowing the guy was who he was, and after the interview was over the guy pulled the three of them aside and said how impressed he was with them and basically said they'd be getting a call back for individual interviews next week. He said they hadn't found hardly any people in Chicago so the chances of them getting a call back were huge! Cam thought he wouldn't be getting a call until later tonight, but they called him around 4:45 to set up a time to do a one hour camera interview next week!!! So if he makes it he'll be on the show with his Aunt Dori and his friend Andrew would be on with his sister. They're doing strictly family members this season so thank goodness Dori was here too! We're sooooo excited, it's been a crazy day!! Keep your fingers crossed!! :) He said the line was actually pretty hilarious, apparently one lady passed out from the heat and there were ambulances and fire trucks everywhere. Later in the day, the same lady, about 450 lbs sits on a stack of chairs and fell on her butt and couldn't get up. Cam and Andrew had to help her! Poor lady! The casting director told Cam they actually had people complaining that they didn't have anywhere to sit and they had to climb lots of stairs... are you kidding me!?! And your'e trying out for The Biggest Loser?! Hello!!! Anyway, it's been an exciting day, can't wait to find out what happens next week! I'll keep you posted!


Cameron got to meet a few of the cast members from last season... Kristen, in the middle, was one of my favorites. They got to talk to her for 20 minutes and said she was really cool!
