I have to admit, I have really only watched bits and pieces of the Biggest Loser along the way. When it first started I did...then faded off....checked it out when they changed up the coaches...and faded off....but the show is coming back...and so is Jillian!
Now how I became huge fans of Jillian and Bob since I wasn't watching the show faithfully...I have no idea. :) But if you check out my work out videos that I have and DO in the basement...its all those 2. They are great work outs and I like them...and I do them.
But now the show is starting up again and Jillian is back! Why am I bringing this up? Nope...no being paid to support the show....altho that would be cool...but because people are excited about it. And I have to admit...I kinda am too....it fun to see her get so passionate about the people she is kicking butts on! And you just like her....it was even brought up this weekend at Ellas family bday party...when it was starting and how people were glad she would be back.
Me too! altho I am going to have to take over some of the DVR space from the hubby!
Here is an article on her return too that got me talking about this whole thing this morning!
"First of all, I missed this one," she said, grabbing the arm of fellow coach Bob Harper. "And I was excited to meet [Dolvett Quince]."
She also likened coming back to fans at a pop concert, eagerly awaiting a superstar's performance of one of their greatest hits.
"With that said, also, you leave the show, and you want to do new things and everyone's like, 'That's great.' 'You wanna do this? Good for you, we support you, that's wonderful. Can you go back to 'Biggest Loser'?'... Bob and I saw Madonna in concert recently and she played a lot of new music and we were like, 'Cool. When's she gonna play 'Holiday'?'" the trainer laughed. "And 'The Biggest Loser' is sort of my version of 'Holiday.'"
Jillian said she also came back to the show, which this season features youngsters, to help inspire.
"I greatly overestimated how tremendously inspired the American public gets by the show, so I'm excited to be back for that reason as well, and then childhood obesity is something we've all fought on a myriad of fronts," she continued. "Bob works with the First Lady, I work with The Clinton Foundation, Dolvett does what he does, and having a vehicle like 'The Biggest Loser,' the resources and the exposure -- to be able to exploit that is really exciting and I feel we've all done that."
As for how long she'll be around this time, Jillian hinted she has no plans to leave.
"I will stay on at this point as long as you'll have me," she said, looking at her producers.
