NBC's The Biggest Loser has taken a serious tumble in the ratings this season without popular trainer Jillian Michaels competing against Bob Harper. But on November 17, Bob reunites with Jillian on her new daytime gig, The Doctors, and pits Jillian against co-host Travis Stork in a Cross Fit competition.
"Since I left Biggest Loser, I have honestly not heard the end of it about how much people miss seeing us together," says Jillian, who was miffed that audiences never got to witness their emotional on-screen goodbyes. "There was a moment in the Season 11 finale where he said, 'I love her more than anything,' and I did the same. But they cut it from the show, so it was pretty uneventful. The Doctors platform gives us the ability to convey what wasn't deemed important on The Biggest Loser. It is valued here."
Jillian hasn't tuned in to Loser since she left but isn't surprised by the drop in viewers. "I know if Bob had left and I'd stayed, the ratings would bomb in the same way."
