We asked Jillian Michaels this morning if she planned to stay and her response was direct, “I might not be.” She said she’s working with NBC, acknowledging that they’ve been great in negotiations, but said “certain things need to happen” for her to stick around another season.
Listen to our interview with Jillian now, as she describes her personal conflict with the season seven contestants, and debates her role in the show going forward.
Anyone watching Biggest Loser season seven can sense that Jillian’s just not that into it. She told us she’s not happy, in fact she’s “miserable.” She warned us in our season six finale interview that season seven would be a tough one because the contestants have “figured it out,” stating that they say just the right things for the camera, and even arrive on campus asking how they go about getting an agent. Jillian told us that while she has kept close, personal relationships with previous contestants, this season was difficult because she just simply hated some of them.
Jillian says there is a price to pay when you’re unhappy all the time, so for now, the decision remains TBD as she sorts it out with NBC.
See part one of our interview, in which Jillian discusses her new book, “Master Your Metabolism.”
