According to a source at People Magazine, Michaels may be considering quitting The Biggest Loser again. The source says that the trainer is concerned about the direction the show is going in and is “turned off” by the poor care of the contestants. This comes just months after the controversial season 15 finale.
Michaels wants to distance herself from the Biggest Loser brand. Especially considering what happened with Rachel, her feeling is that there isn’t proper attention paid to the contestants’ health or wellness.
Additionally, Michaels has also grown tired of the “bad guy” persona she has developed on the show.
The show uses her as the bad guy, and anyone who knows Jillian knows she’s not the bad guy at all. She’s a loving mother of two kids. She’s not the negative person they portray her as. She wants to be in a place where she has more respect.
