Jillian Michaels famously left The Biggest Loser because she felt the show had taken a negative turn and destroyed her reputation as a health and wellness advocate in favor of promoting dramatic weightless results. But Jillian hasn’t left reality TV behind for good – she’s embarking on her own solo show and she’s also rebranding herself after taking a public beating.
In an effort to reestablish her image after her merry-go-round relationship with the Biggest Loser, Jillian now reveals a softer approach – and a more down-to-earth one. Like “hell no!” she doesn’t like to exercise, “I watch the clock every minute,” the personal trainer admits.
“People assume that I think I’m better than that show. I do not. Also, there’s a misconception that I keep leaving,” Jillian explains. “On season three, I was fired.
