Potential future Biggest Losers and Jillian Michaels fans are about to receive some crushing news. The popular fitness trainer just announced that she is leaving The Biggest Loser to have children, according to Us Magazine.
“I want to take a year off TV and focus on becoming a mommy and doing more charity work,” she Tweeted earlier this week.
She credits her big decision to her experience in filming her own series, “Losing it.”
“Shooting ‘Losing It’ also had big impact on me,” she said of the series, in which she helped kids slim down. “Living with kids, I saw firsthand what I was missing.”
Michaels plans on taking one year off from television to dedicate herself to starting a family and involve herself in more charity work.
While no one can replace the tough-talking trainer, a replacement has already been secured. According to Michaels, the new Biggest Loser trainer is a female and has already been hired.
Season 11 of the Biggest Loser, which starts in January, will be Michaels’ last. It is also the season that we will most likely catch a first glimpse of who the trainer will be.
