Last week we watched as Olivia Ward took the season eleven crown on The Biggest Loser on NBC. But season eleven was not the only thing we said goodbye to last week as we also bid farewell to trainer Jillian Michaels, whom we all love so much. After the finale, Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels shared their thoughts about her departure. Keep reading to hear what they had to say!
The Biggest Loser fans will certainly miss Jillian Michaels in the upcoming seasons, but she has moved on to bigger and better things in her life. The 37 year old trainer is currently planning to adopt a child and it’s no secret that we will be able to catch her on The Doctors and Dr. Phil. But Jillian had nothing to love to share about The Biggest Loser when she recently spoke to People magazine and told them “To see the show wrap up with three female finalists and a female winner with a group of contestants whom Bob and I adored. It was the perfect ending” and “I am grateful for what the show has given me, but it’s no secret that I’ve been wanting to be in daytime for years now.”
Bob Harper also shared his thoughts with the magazine as he added of Jillian “has been my confidant, friend and foe, my wife at times. We have gone through so much together since season one and she’s moving on, which is great for her.” Bob also said that despite the fact that he is sad to see Jillian go, he is excited to see what season twelve brings and that he is confident in Anna Kournikova – glad you are Bob because the majority of fans are not happy with the decision to replace Jillian with Anna. In my opinion, there will never be a replacement good enough to fill the void Jillian Michaels is leaving behind.
