Nearly 1,000 people showed up at a San Diego restaurant for a Thursday casting call for NBC's "The Biggest Loser" that never happened.

The company in charge of the casting call reportedly failed to provide crowd control or outside restrooms, prompting the restaurant to call off the event, KNSD-TV, San Diego reported.

The independent production company in charge of "The Biggest Loser" had representatives at Dave & Busters Thursday and was trying to reschedule the casting call, KNSD said.

Restaurant management said they canceled the event out of concern for the safety of their employees and the much larger-than-anticipated crowd.

"Unfortunately, the situation this morning was not safe despite out very best efforts to make it so," a statement from the restaurant said. "We regret that the event had to be canceled."
