Kid, You're Gonna Be a (Reality TV) Star!

Are you fat? Do you want to lose weight and think being embarrassed on national television would be the best way to do it?

ABC is casting for a new reality show tomorrow at Live Sports Cafe (405 Main) from noon to 4 p.m.

Here's the pitch:

Each of the candidates chosen for the team can win tens of thousands of dollars while taking part in the biggest weight loss experience in American television history. The new show is different from any other program on TV and takes the viewer along on a journey with a select group of full-figured and heavy-set participants who triumph and achieve their personal goals while inspiring the lives of millions.

We're not quite sure how this show is going to be different from all the other ones, so we'll just have to take their word for it. — Keith Plocek
