Must See TV: Jillian Returns for the New Season of The Biggest Loser
She is known for her straight up, hard talk, and no excuses tolerated attitude - Jillian Michaels is back for the 14th season of “The Biggest Loser” (airing in January). Since she left the show in 2010 at the conclusion of season 10, her fans have been rooting for her return. We’re sure with her being back the show will be better than ever. This season, the sky rocketing statistics of childhood obesity has influenced some slight changes on the show. This season will feature three teams of six, one whom will be a teen between the ages of 13 and 17. Jillian often shares stories of growing up as an overweight teen, and this season’s twist is an issue very close to her heart as she “firsthand how dramatically weight issues can affect every aspect of a child’s life.” In order to delicately and appropriate with young teens being on the show, they will not be weighed in for the broadcast, nor can they be eliminated. While we’re sure Jillian’s tough love tactics will be front and center, the teens will not be subjected to the same tactics as the adult contestants. The focus for the teen’s is to be health, not weight or clothing size. Season 14 will certainly be a different kind of show! Leave it to Jillian, who has recently become a mother of two children, to be more passionate than ever to empower children to live healthier lives. We want to welcome you back Jillian, and can’t wait to see you kick butt in January!
