The famous trainers say they didn’t work with Rachel and are therefore not comfortable commenting on her “journey.” They ask that all questions about the show be directed to NBC.

Many fans are unhappy that Michaels and Harper seem to be putting all of the blame on Frederickson’s trainer, Dolvett Quince, and NBC. Ellen Burford commented, “Oh, Bob. I love you but your hatred for Dolvett needs to simmer down. You and Jill almost seem threatened by him.”

Fans aren’t the only ones upset by the pair’s joint statement. "America's Angriest Trainer" Vinnie Tortorich is calling out Bob and Jillian. Vinnie, author of the book “Fitness Confidential,” says,

“I hope no one trips and hurts themselves while trying to hide behind each other. Apparently Bob Harper isn’t man enough to speak out on his own, so he’s hiding behind Jillian Michaels, as she hides behind the mommy skirt of NBC, saying it’s their problem. Wake up people. The trainers have no problem making money off these contestants, but where are they now that Rachel Frederickson needs a friend? Who is going to protect her? My heart goes out to Rachel. I only want her to succeed and be healthy. Rachel, I’ll privately take your phone call at any time. No one wants to protect her or be her friend? Well, I will. I see the real losers here – Jillian Michael and Bob Harper.”

Dolvett Quince wrote that Rachel’s health is and always has been his biggest concern, adding her journey to good health isn’t over yet.
