‘The Biggest Loser’ Jillian Michaels returns with three kids and one quitter:
She’s back, Jillian Michaels made her return to “The Biggest Loser” as a trainer on Sunday’s premiere of season 14 after taking a two-cycle break from the weight-loss competition. And this time, it sounds like she won’t be leaving again for awhile.
During a panel with the cast at the TV Critics winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., on Sunday afternoon, the trainer said that she was excited to be back and that “I will stay on (‘Loser’) as long as you’ll have me!”
“You leave the show, you want to do new things. Everyone’s like, ‘That’s great! Good for you! We support you. Can you go back to ‘Biggest Loser’?’ ” she told reporters. “(Fellow trainer) Bob Harper and I saw Madonna in concert recently and she played new music, and we were like, ‘Cool! When is she going to play ‘Holiday’?’ ‘Biggest Loser’ is sort of my version of ‘Holiday.’”
Trainer Jillian Michaels returns after two seasons away and says the childhood obesity issue hits close to home. “I do have two kids and I appreciate the issue in a really different way now,” says Jillian. We learn the three kids will spend one week at the ranch, then continue to work from home, checking in regularly with their trainers and returning to the ranch for special workouts.
