On March 1, more than 170 people lined up for the chance to appear on the popular ABC show "Extreme Weight Loss." The Bariatrics Center at The Nebraska Medical Center was a sponsor for the event. Auditions were held at Mrs. B's Clearance & Factory Outlet Center located next to Nebraska Furniture Mart. Despite the cold weather, the line started to form at 3:30 a.m. To qualify for the audition, candidates need to lose half their body weight. Once a contestant is chosen, they will have 365 days to lose the weight with the help of celebrity personal trainer Chris Powell. The fifth season of "Extreme Weight Loss" is expected to begin filming in May. For more information on the Bariatrics Center at The Nebraska Medical Center, visit their website:
