One of our favorite reality television stars, Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels, announced this week that this will be her last season on the hit NBC show.
“It’s my last season,” Michaels told People.com. “The role I plan on taking is passing the baton. I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes. I remember when I was first starting and I didn’t want anyone telling me what to do. But the show is established now and there is a program that the contestants go on so they won’t be lost.”
So what will Jillian do with all her free time? The pescatarian and health advocate revealed she’d like to help strengthen America’s physical education programs and also participate in getting subsidies for organic farms.
“When I look at the platform I was able to have because of the show, I wonder what else I could be doing with it or should be doing with it.
“I love Biggest Loser,” Michaels says, “but it’s a seven-day-a-week job. I’m 36. I want to start thinking about a family. I want to be a mom … I need to be able to find a way to incorporate that in my life.”
Although we’ll miss Jillian on the show, we’re excited to see what’s next for the healthy rockstar!
