Fans of hit reality show “The Biggest Loser” would surely miss trainer Jillian Michaels.
NBC has confirmed that Jillian Michaels is quitting Biggest Loser again.
“After helping hundreds of contestants transform their lives and inspiring millions of viewers at home, The Biggest Loser and Jillian Michaels have decided to part ways and she will not be returning for season 16 when it airs in the fall,” NBC said in a statement. – NBC
It was reported that the trainer was turned off by the too skinny controversy surrounding the most recent winner, Rachel Frederickson. She made headlines when she appeared shockingly too skinny at the Season 15 finale, where she took home the grand prize for losing the biggest weight of 155 lbs.
This is the third time that Michaels has left the series. She previously exited the series in Season 3 and returned a year later. She then exited after Season 11. Michaels then came back to the show in Season 14. Her latest departure leaves Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince as the sole trainers on the show.
The series is scheduled to return to NBC in September.
