Dallas, a Big Winner on Biggest Loser

I mentioned over the weekend that while at Fair Park for Code 58 media day I stumbled across a Biggest Loser shoot at the Swine Building, where contestants were ushered into the arena and made to wrangle cattle into pens. Turns out, the NBC reality series was here for five days working with a mostly local crew, and among their stops were the downtown 24 Hour Fitness, where cast and assorted extras worked out with trainer Bob Harper, and Victory Park, where, last night, the weigh-in was shown on the plaza's big screens. I've never seen the show, but it's nice to see they found a use for Victory Park.
