Earlier this week, Jillian Michaels announced that the upcoming season of Biggest Loser will be her last. Apparently she wanted to leave sooner but the producers wanted to make sure she fulfilled her entire contract which runs out after season 11.
I can't believe there have been that many seasons of the show. I have not really watched the past few seasons that much. Do they ever update how people are doing from the earlier seasons? I would be interested to see how many of the contestants have managed to keep all their weight off.
Anyway, Jillian explained that she is leaving the show because she wants to take a year off and have kids.
"I want to take a year off TV and focus on becoming a mommy and doing more charity work." I think she wants some time to try and repair her image which has taken a huge nose dive in the past year with all of the controversies about whether she is a good trainer and also about all those lawsuits involving products she endorses.
My prediction is that a year from now, she will have done some charity work, lined up a new show and will still have no children.
