The celebrity trainer announced today that she is heading back to the weight loss competition show. Jillian left two seasons ago to pursue other interests, which included welcoming two children, but she's now ready to return to the show that made her a household name.
Jillian was persuaded to return so she can help the show's first-ever teen contestants. "As a former overweight teen, I know firsthand how dramatically weight issues can affect every aspect of a child's life. 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,"
Jillian will be working alongside Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince in the season 14, which is set to debut in January.
I have to admit that I'm THRILLED to see Jillian back! I gave up on the show after she left because it just didn't feel the same. It'll be nice to see her dole out a balance of compassion and tough love to help these teens!
