NBC has spun off “The Biggest Loser,” giving sexy/scary trainer Jillian Michaels her own show called “Losing it with Jillian.”
Michaels will travel the country showing weight-challenged Americans that they can get the same results as contestants on “The Biggest Loser” without attending the show’s immersive fitness boot camp… In each self-contained episode, Michaels will move into a family’s home and give them a top-to-bottom fitness, nutrition and wellness makeover. Unlike “Loser,” which is more strictly focused on shedding pounds, “Losing It” will take on multiple aspects of living a healthier lifestyle.
“In a way, it’s a response to the comments we always get on ‘Loser,’ ” Michaels said. “We always hear, ‘It’s so easy to lose weight when you move into the camp and you’re living with trainers’ and ‘Would they really be able to lose the weight if there wasn’t money on the line?’” [The Live Feed]
Really? Jillian must not be hearing my comments, because all of mine are about the depths of my masochistic depravity. I’m always saying, “Jillian yelling at people turns me on” and “I think I’d be okay with her strapping it on” and “I don’t think she’d give me a choice about the strap-on” and “I’m okay with that.”
