Jillian Michaels is leaving Biggest Loser

Someone posted this tidbit of news over on the casting page discussion, then I saw Jillian’s tweets about it and now it has made the news (all based on her twitter, no official statements have been made).  Basically, it looks like this upcoming season premiering in January will have a new trainer … that will go on to replace Jillian.  You can read the article here.  What do you all think of a Biggest Loser without Jillian?  She has definitely killed the competition when it comes to producing winners.  My impression from talking to other contestants who know her and listening to her is that she has definitely been the biggest expert on the trainer side of things on the show, but I’ve actually never met her – she wasn’t around on season three, my season.  That was the year she left the show because she said she didn’t like what they were going to do to the 36 of us sent home the first day – it was a pretty mean move at the time!
