Recently, it was announced that Jillian Michaels would not be returning for the new season of The Biggest Loser, and the news did not really surprise anyone, but it did leave fans wondering what would happen in the new season. Well, we’ve got our answer! Two new trainers will be joining the hit show when it returns in September.
Facebook and Twitter fans were not surprised to learn that Jillian Michaels was leaving The Biggest Loser again, but they were left wondering if the show would bring in any new trainers. Well, NBC announced recently that they will be bringing in two new trainers for the new season: Jennifer Widerstrom and Jessie Pavelka. “We are excited to welcome Jessie and Jen into The Biggest Loser family, and know they will be valuable players on this life-changing show that continues to inspire millions of people to embrace a healthy lifestyle,” the network said in a statement.
Pavelka is best known for starring in Lifetime’s reality show DietTribe, as well as several British weight loss programs. And since you’re probably wondering – yes, Jessie is related to Jake Pavelka, who starred on The Bachelor – they are cousins. As for Jen, she is a fitness expert for Fitbie.com and a life coach for MSN.com. Widerstrom is also a former star of American Gladiators.
And don’t worry about Bob Harper or Dolvett Quince, because both of our favorite trainers will be back next season as well. Yes, for the second time in the show’s history, the show will have four trainers. It should make for an interesting season!
Now it’s your turn to sound off! What do you think about The Biggest Loser adding two new trainers? Should they have just left it with Bob and Dolvett? Comment below and tell us what you think.
