Jillian Michaels has signed a multiyear deal that will see “The Biggest Loser” trainer join “The Doctors” as a co-host next season.
Michaels, who has made numerous guest appearances on The Doctors, says she’s delighted to get a permanent position. “I could not be more excited about joining such an amazing show,” she said in a statement. “My greatest passion is helping people live their healthiest, happiest lives by empowering them with information and support.”
Michaels will focus on wellness, prevention and lifestyle dynamics in addition to other health-related issues, producers said.
Michaels announced in December that she’d be leaving “The Biggest Loser” at the end of Season 11 to take a year off and focus on becoming a mom and doing more charity work.
