"THE BIGGEST LOSER" Casting Director Sets the Record Straight! 
I spoke directly with Casting Director Ian Young late this evening about whether or not having undergone any form of weight loss surgery would prevent someone from becoming a contestant.
The short answer?
"No. As long as they have at least 100 lbs.to lose we don’t care what they’ve tried in the past to lose weight."
Ian went on to talk about what the producers are looking for in potential contestants:
"We’re looking for people with great personality; not as in, telling jokes or performing; but, as in being open and real in front of people they don’t know. They need to be outgoing.They’re going to be on camera in front of millions.They have to be intensely committed to changing their lives and losing the weight."
"The challenge for people who have ‘only’ 100 lbs.to lose is to sustain their will to compete at the highest level; they’re likely to lose it fairly soon – then what? We can’t have them continuing to lose weight – that’s unhealthy! But we can’t have them stop competing or sneaking extra food to hold their own. You see the problem?"
So there you have it.
My opinion?
If you’ve had weight loss surgery and gained back a signficant amount of weight; or, if you’ve had WLS within the last 6-9 months but your slow rate of weight loss has kept you in the morbidly obese weight loss category; and, the opportunity to be on "THE BIGGEST LOSER" thrills you –   go for it!!

Are you an information junkie?
A clippings hoarder?
A research addict?
Does taking action always seem
just a few more variables away?
Are you buried alive in factoids, unable to take action? 
Are you intimately familiar with bouts of OVERWHELM?
There is an antidote to this assault on your efforts to remain rational!
It cannot take affect, however, by studying it or reading about it…
You just have to experience it!
INTUITION,  when developed, is dazzling in its speed,
wisdom, creativity and usefulness in guiding you into
the right and perfect choice, action, decision, behavior,
relationship, answers for you!
The simplest and most immediately practical method of developing
your intuition is learning to "think" in pictures!
Experience the exhilaration and vitality of discovering your capacity
to discover what’s "on your mind," and "in your heart" using your
intuition! How? When?
