Former “Biggest Loser” trainer, Jillian Michaels, has come out to reveal why she decided to leave the reality competition.
Jillian took a break from the show for one season in 2006 but then, later announced that she would be permanently leaving the show in 2010, after she returned from her one-season break.
However, in 2013, she returned to “The Biggest Loser,” only to shockingly announced that she is resigning from her post last month.
She told People magazine that although she is “grateful to the show” and “sad to leave,” she confessed that the show’s producers and her have not been in agreement over some issues for some time now.
Jillian also pointed that the recent episodes of the show have not portrayed the full picture.
“In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love.” she said.
“(But in recent episodes) you saw none of the relationships, none of the bonds that I build with my clients. Millions of people have this warped negative perception of me,” she added.
One incident, though, that has really pricked her was when she was accused of cheating by allowing her team to take caffeine pills without the show’s producers’ consent.
That incident even rippled down to affect her daughter’s when her daughter’s camp-mate said: “I know who your mom is – she’s a cheater. I saw it on TV.”
Where will the personal trainer move on to now is not confirmed but she has quite intelligently stated: “I came to the conclusion that moving forward, I need to be able to have an impact on the outcome of what I do.”
