It seems like forever since the days of just Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels tackling the contestants of The Biggest Loser together, and since Jillian’s departure a few seasons back, we’ve seen many new faces fill the former trainer’s spot. But throughout all of the chaos and trainer changes, one staple has remained: Bob Harper – and honestly, I think most of us couldn’t picture the weight loss show without him.
Needless to say, when fans learned that host Alison Sweeney would be leaving the show, panic began to set in as to what Harper’s fate would be. Would he be the next leave? Thankfully, Harper is not leaving the show, but he is taking on a different role for the new season – as the new host! So, what exactly does that mean for the rest of the trainers?

Whew. Can you say thankful? I certainly am that Bob Harper is not leaving The Biggest Loser. With almost all the familiar faces leaving over the past few years, we couldn’t even imagine the show without Harper’s compassion, wit and expertise. And luckily, we don’t have to know a season with Bob, yet.
“I’m super excited about taking the position of host on The Biggest Loser,” Harper told People Magazine recently. And while he won’t be training the contestants, he will put a different feel on the show. “I know all of the ins and outs [of the show]. And let me tell you, the weigh-in room is going to be a completely different ballgame with me at the steering wheel,” Harper continued.
So, who will be training the contestants? Well, anyone who knows me, knows how much I admire Dolvett Quince, and if you’re like me, you’ll be thrilled to know that Dolvett will also be back for the new season as one of the trainers. As for the newbies, Jessie Pavelka and Jen Widerstrom, it looks like Jen has also signed on for the new season, but so far, no word on whether or not Jessie will return.
