VIDEO: Jillian Michaels Wants Out of The Biggest Loser

Just months after a controversial season 15 finale, Jillian Michaels is ready to leave the show

The Biggest Loser is about to lose more than just unwanted pounds — the show will be losing trainer Jillian Michaels as well, according to PEOPLE.

“She is deeply concerned about the direction the show has been taking,” said the source. Michaels is reportedly unhappy with multiple aspects of the show, ranging from how she herself has been portrayed to the controversial weight loss of winner Rachel Frederickson from last season’s finale.

This wouldn’t be the first time Michaels has left the show; the trainer opted out after season 11 but was back again by season 14.
