The Biggest Loser is back tonight and so is hard-ass out trainer Jillian Michaels! Contestants this season, many of them teens as the premise of the season seeks to tackle childhood obesity, can look forward to a fresh face of Jillian barking at them morning, noon and night.
Jillian returns following a two-year hiatus during which she started a family with her partner Heidi Rhodes. Together they are raising Lukensia, a toddler-aged girl that Jillian adopted from Haiti, and their son Phoenix, the baby Rhodes gave birth to last year.
In a release earlier this year when Jillian’s return to The Biggest Loser was announced she said, "As a former overweight teen, I know firsthand how dramatically weight issues can affect every aspect of a child's life.” She added, “Having recently become a mother of two, I am more passionate than ever about helping empower children and families with the information and resources they need to live a healthier life."
