With the new season of The Biggest Loser on NBC right around the corner, most of us are wondering how the season will go Jillian Michaels, but instead with two new trainers. The show’s executive producer recently chatted about the trainers, but what did he say? Read on to find out!
We already know and love Bob Harper, and luckily for us, he will be returning for the new season of The Biggest Loser on NBC, which premieres on September 20. But what about the show’s two new trainers, Anna Kournikova and Dolvett Quince? The Biggest Loser’s executive producer, Todd Lubin recently spoke to EW about the new trainers. He didn’t tell us much about Dolvett Quince, but he did say: “Dolvett is like an Army drill sergeant. He does a lot of: ‘FOUR! FIVE! KEEP IT UP!”
We know many of you are not looking forward to Anna Kournikova, but Todd Lubin assures us that she is qualified as he said of her: “Obviously she doesn’t have the experience that Bob or Dolvett does, but she’s a certified trainer, and it was extremely important for us that she had that credibility. But mostly she’s drawing on her tennis experience as a professional athlete: She was No. 1 in the world in doubles and she was No. 8 in singles,” and “You’re going to be blown away by how sincere she is, how intense she is, how focused she is for these folks. She’s totally dedicated to the point where she’s getting Bob back into the gym.”
Todd Lubin also brought up why The Biggest Loser chose not to bring back Cara or Brett, from last season as he added: “With Jillian leaving, it was like, ‘We really need to establish a new focus.’…. We were thrilled with last season — that was the hard part. We really liked them. They did a good job. But the show needs to continue to evolve, it needs to continue to get better, smarter, sharper, faster.”
With that said, I guess we should at least give the new trainers a chance, right? Are you excited about the new season of The Biggest Loser on NBC? We can’t wait! Be sure to tune in on September 20 at 8 pm EST for the season 12 premiere!
