Jillian Michaels announced today that she is returning to the Biggest Loser. That’s the good news. The bad news is it won’t start until January.
The Biggest Loser is also doing something near and dear to Jillian’s heart and that is adding teenagers to the show (Jillian herself was an overweight teen see photos).
Its going to be controversial as Jillian won’t be able to just scream at the kids with their fragile egos. According to Jillian, “The producers of the show have been consulting some of the top experts — pediatricians, child psychologists — to help us deal with this in the most delicate and appropriate ways.” She later stated that they won’t be getting on a scale.
Let’s throw another aspect that isn’t included in the clip below. On her podcast she stated that one of the producers of the Biggest Loser that she really had a problem with was fired. With her adoption complete, and the producer removed, it created a pretty clear path to Jillian coming back. She had also mentioned on her podcast that she had a few deals in the works that didn’t pan out. I’m glad to have her back, but bummed we have to wait until January. Team Jillian rides again. Get your shirts here.
