Fan favorite Jillian Michaels has returned to “The Biggest Loser.” This reunites Michaels on screen with her longtime partner, Bob Harper. Michaels, Harper and fellow trainer Dolvett Quince appeared on the Jan. 11 episode of “The Dr. Oz Show.”
Dr. Oz asked Jillian why she left the show two years ago. Michaels explained two factors were at work: she wanted to start a family and she wanted to try new things.
Jillian became the mother of two children in the same week last May. Michael’s partner gave birth to a baby boy the same week Jillian adopted a two-year-old girl from a Haitian orphanage.
Michaels said she was pulled back to the show. Harper is thrilled to have her back and said it is like his pal “came home.” Bob and Jillian clearly have a close friendship. In fact, Harper is so excited to have her back, he has a hard time putting her down.
Bob demonstrated his CrossFit skills by hoisting Jillian above his head, a move he does frequently now.
