Jillian Michaels has announced that she will be returning to "The Biggest Loser". There is a new twist to the familiar format, and it may surprise you! The new season of the NBC weight-loss show will feature overweight teens between the ages of 13 and 17. It's definitely a controversial move for the series. Michaels spoke about the childhood obesity epidemic on the "Today" show, and stated that it is an issue that needs to be handled.
Some critics are concerned that featuring children on the show may be inappropriate. I personally question whether it is safe for a child's emotional well-being to be featured on television show of this nature. I definitely agree that it is an issue that needs to be addressed. I wonder if "The Biggest Loser" is the best way to deal with this problem. I guess we will all have to wait until January to find out!
