Anna Kournikova of NBC‘s The Biggest Loser recently announced that she would not be returning to the show after this season, but it was not confirmed whether or not the tennis pro was fired, or she quit on her own. This season, we have watched Anna Kournikova struggle to get through to some of the contestants, although others have had successful weight loss on her watch, so we can’t help but wonder where she went wrong? More after the jump…
The Biggest Loser fans will not have to endure Anna Kournikova as a trainer next season, or any season after that for that matter. Anna Kournikova issued this statement yesterday as she announced she was leaving the show: “I enjoyed my time on the Biggest Loser ranch. Although I will not be returning as a full time trainer on season 13, I will always be a part of The Biggest Loser family and my commitment to bettering lives through health and fitness will continue.” It was not confirmed whether or not the tennis pro was fired, or if she quit on her own, but we have a sneaking suspicion that she may have been fired – although some sources say it was a mutual decision.
Last week, when we chatted with Joe Mitchell, he gushed about Anna Kournikova, and how she changed his thinking, but other contestants this season were not as lucky. Bonnie, for one, dealt with the constant feeling that Anna never gave her enough credit for her hard work, while she praised everyone else. Ironically, when Bonnie switched to another trainer, she started to see results that she hadn’t seen all season – coincidence? We think not! Sources continue to claim that Anna was difficult to work with, even referring to her as “a nightmare.”
Anna Kournikova never really caught on with viewers either. Could that be because she never shared much with us? I mean, for weeks we have been listening to Dolvett Quince open up, little by little, and last night he shared his full childhood sob story with us all – and if you are anything like me, you had a tear in your eye while watching. We can’t help but wonder why Anna Kournikova never opened up more, so we may have connected with her better.
So now we want to know: Will you miss Anna Kournikova, or are you thrilled that she is gone? Also, would you like to see Dolvett Quince come back next season, or should he leave next? We know that you have an opinion, and we want to hear it! Comment below and share your thoughts with us!
Also, stay tuned later as Reality TV Magazine has both a press conference with Bonnie, and an exclusive interview with former trainer, Kim Lyons, so we are sure to have more opinions on the exit of Anna Kournikova from these ladies!
