The Biggest Loser‘s season finale is May 25, but fans of tough trainer Jillian Michaels won’t have to wait long to watch her at work again.Â The reality star is Â launching her own television show this summer!Â NBC has announced that eight episodes of Losing It With Jillian will begin airing in June. Keep reading for more details on Jillian’s new TV venture and what special celebrity guest will be helping her…
Jillian Michaels, star ofÂ The Biggest Loser, is stepping out on her own with a newÂ NBC show titled Losing It With Jillian. The show will follow the tough trainer as she moves in with families each week and helps them change their dietary and fitness routines. Fortunately, The Biggest Loser star won’t be working alone. She’ll be joined by a familiar face from theÂ NBC weight loss show:Â celebrity chef, Curtis Stone. Stone will be featured on Losing It With Jillian to teach families about nutrition.
â€œWhen your health is out of balance everything else suffers â€” finances, relationships, work and family dynamics,â€ Michaels says. â€œIâ€™m moving in with families across the country, getting down and dirty and rooting out bad habits in every corner of their lives that are preventing them from health and happiness.â€
â€œI love the idea of Jillian crisscrossing America to actually move in with unhealthy families in desperate need of her tough love wake-up call,â€ said the show’s executive producer. â€œItâ€™s the knock on your door that could save your life.â€ Despite the new job, Jillian Michaels will continue her gig onÂ The Biggest Loser. Of the new show, she says,Â ”Biggest Loser is the last resort … our show is an intervention. I wanted an opportunity to … [go] to people’s homes and [teach] them in their own environment.”
Losing It With Jillian will premiere on NBC on June 1st at 10pm EST following the premiere ofÂ America’s Got Talent.
