The question of who will be replacing bulldog trainer Jillian Michaels when she exits The Biggest Loser this season to start a family and pursue new career opportunities may finally have been answered.
According to x17online.com, the show has signed tennis star Anna Kournikova to fill Michaels’s formidable shoes.
NBC will make an official announcement as to who will be joining the show’s training team on Tuesday’s The Biggest Loser’s season finale. If it is Kournikova, she will work alongside the show’s longtime fitness guru Bob Harper and this season’s newcomers Cara Castronuovaand Brett Hoebel moving forward.
Kournikova, who made her debut at the U.S. Open when she was just 15 years old and was named ESPN’s Hottest Female Athlete in 2002, is no stranger to the extreme weight loss show. She appeared on The Biggest Loser in October 2010, guiding contestants through an intense tennis-themed workout.
