Fitness guru Cara Castronuova isn't very discriminating ... she'll go on a date with ANYONE who's willing to pay the asking price -- $10,000.
Cara -- an ex-trainer on "The Biggest Loser" -- tells TMZ she's raising money for her charity -- Knockout Obesity -- by offering a romantic evening in NYC with anyone who ponies up 10 grand.
The best part ... she's open to men and women.
Cara says she hopes to go on at least 3 dates so she can send 50 overweight kids to fat camp. She's moved by the heartbreaking letters she gets ... including one from a boy who told her he desperately wants to shed lbs so other kids will stop pinching his stomach.
So what do you get for your money? Cara says the date consists of dinner at a really nice place and then seeing the new Rocky musical on Broadway.
But here's the deal ... you have to pick up the tab for dinner ... and pay your own way to NYC. She'll take care of the theater tix.
There could be an added bonus ... she says, "Maybe I can find love and kill two birds with one stone."

2/4/2014 3:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Fatness often plagues NFL players after they retire -- but former lineman Alan Faneca tells TMZ Sports he's helping his old teammates win the battle against obesity .... just like he did.
Faneca -- who played 13 NFL seasons while weighing 320 lbs -- has dropped all the way to 213 lbs ... and ran a full marathon in UNDER 4 HOURS this past weekend.
"There's no reason to be 320 and be walking around post-football," Faneca says ... noting that he made the decision to shed the weight after considering the long-term health issues that have plagued NFL big men in the past.
And now that he's successfully slimmed down, Alan says he's passing along his weight loss secrets to some of his old friends from the Steelers, Jets and Cardinals.
"I have had some buddies reach out that have had trouble and struggled," Alan said while appearing on the "TMZ Sports" TV show ... explaining, "If you dont make that transtiton kind of quick, all of the sudden that 320 turns into an ugly 350."
Faneca says he still gets cravings for chocolate chip cookies -- but says he's managed to ween himself off his most dangerous snack item ... a snack that contained 1,000 CALORIES.
Producer Dr. Luke Target
Of Twitter Death Threats
2/4/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ke$ha's music producer Dr. Luke is in serious danger, according to the LAPD, after some of the singer's fans went nuclear -- blaming Luke for her eating disorder.
LAPD's Threat Management Unit filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- asking for a search warrant to hunt down the identity of people who are threatening Luke's life on Twitter.
The vengeful tweets started after TMZ ran a story that Ke$ha entered rehab for an eating disorder because Luke taunted her about her weight. Ke$ha's friend told us ... Luke told her she "looks like a f**king refrigerator."
In the search warrant docs, cops point out some of the tweets, including:
-- "You need to be worried because IMA slit your throat before January is over."
-- "You ugly fat ass bum bitch. Im gonna carve u like a pumpkin with a long sharp knife."
-- "Im gonna gut you like a fish then skin you and glue ur wrinkly raisin skin to a fridge!"
-- "I'm gonna slit your F**KIN throat open then gouge your eyeballs out."
Cops are taking the threats seriously, particularly because one tweet gave the home address and phone number of Luke and then invited followers to kill him.
