In a conference call this week, trainer Jillian Michaels spoke with reporters about the upcoming season ofÂ The Biggest Loser: Second Chances.Â She talks about her philosophies on weight loss and even some changes that will be coming to the show this fall.Â
“So we have these contestants that have been to hell and back to be quite frank. And they’re coming to the campus and the idea is that how do we heal these old injuries and rehabilitate these contestants not just physically but emotionally because ultimately — although we talk about diet and exercise — the philosophy of the show has always been about life,”Â JillianÂ said about the Second Chances themed show.
This season, she and fellow trainer Bob Harper will be working interchangeably with contestants, rather than in competition with one another.Â “I think that this is how the show should have been since its onset. I can’t imagine not working together,” she said. “We have the same ideas and beliefs about where [the contestants] should end up. We have different approaches on how to get there. And I think that we are complementary to each other.”
She added, however, that it will be hard not to get emotionally involved this season. “They were the perfect cast to help me reconnect,” she said.Â “Right now I’m trying to get in that place of being like this is a job; you do your job. You don’t get triggered emotionally. It is not personal. You get in and you do your job,” she added.
