    Does anyone know why Jillian Michaels wasn't on the 3rd season of biggest loser? In the promos for the upcoming season they said that she was kicked off the show and now she's back.

    I'm not completely sure of the reasons, but I think she quit and then did Biggest Loser in Australia.

    I'm sure they threw her a bunch of money to come back - she's far more interesting than the blonde.

    From what I heard, she was "doing her own thing." She was on the radio, and doing all types of personal appearances last season ....I kinda missed her.

    Indeed, Jillian's replacement was pretty bad. Will there be three teams this season?

    Excellent! Bob strikes me as the guy you want as your friend when on a fitness program, but Jillian is the one I would want to be my trainer. If they have a "Scrawny Guy with a Gut and Love Handles" version of the show I will sign up.

    The third team will consist of members that were voted out. They will be Jillian's (black) team. So she won't appear until later in the season.

    What about last year's host, Charlotte something? Was she fired? I think it was getting to the point where it would have made more sense for her to be a contestant on the show rather than the host. (I know - I'm mean, but it's true!)

    Heh, when we watched the show Tuesday night my wife said wow the host lost a lot of weight. I had to tell her it was a different person. :)

    They finally made the right decision and found some Hollywood type actress to host. Caroline Rhea was horrible and I think she kept adding more weight eah season!

    I'm so glad Jillian's back. She really kicks arse. I didn't not like the Barbie they replaced her with.

    From the Update Show last week:

    I know Suzy just had a baby, but didn't Matt look big again?

    Wow. I sure couldn't have been more wrong about why Jilian was gone. I figured they simply replaced her with a "hotter blonder" trainer. Eye candy for the masses... My Wife and I were pissed. Glad to see it was her own call. Kind of smacks of a "David Caruso" if you ask me, but hey, at least it was her choice and she wasn't forced out as we assumed. :p

    I watched the first episode of this show last night. I went to highschool with one of the contestants, Jez (on the black team).

    I don't get why they set up Jillian's return as the BIG SURPRISE of the season and they let the cat out of the bag in the first 3 minutes... (let alone in the marketing coming attractions since you all seemed to already know about it).

    Talk about a spoiler - the entire mystery motorcyle rider with the black helmet riding past the bus completely ruined.

    and the new host? *YAWN*

    she mighta been doing her own thing but the rumors last year was she wanted too much money to reup so they did kick her off to cool down and return when the money was more agreeable to the network.
