The new season of The Biggest Loser on NBC is almost upon us, and most us are wondering how the season will go without our favorite tough trainer, Jillian Michaels. However, Bob Harper has recently revealed that he is going to be tougher this season! Read on for more…
Bob Harper tough? We’ve always known trainer Jillian Michaels to be the tougher one on The Biggest Loser, while Bob always came off as more supportive. So where is the toughness going to be in the new season? Bob Harper says that he will be toughening up this season. In a recent interview, Bob Harper said of the new season: “I’ve gotten possessed by Jillian a lot. You’re going to see me in a different way, not taking ‘no’ for an answer, getting people to stand on their own two feet,” and adds: “Now that Jillian has moved on and is working with ‘The Doctors,” I’m getting a chance to spread my wings in my own way. I’ve got to do what I can for these people, as passionately as possible.”
While it may take us some getting used to this season without Jillian, but with the addition of new trainers, Bob had nothing but good things to say about them. Bob Harper boasted of Anna Kournikova: “She’s a sweet woman and a really strong competitor,” but he is also aware of how demanding the job is as he added: “It’s going to be a real struggle, I think, because it’s such a specific job. You can come in with all the heart you want, but you also have to know what to do.” Though he did not comment on trainer Dolvett Quince, Quince will also be joining the training team for season 12.
