Today announced that Jillian Michaels is going to do a companion to Biggest Loser. The network picked up eight episodes of Losing It With Jillian. On her new show she’ll be traveling the country showing over-weight people how to get in shape, lose weight and get the same results as Biggest Loser, but in their own environment.
From the press release, “In each self-contained episode, Michaels will move into a family’s home and give them a top-to-bottom fitness, nutrition and wellness makeover.”
UM, WAIT A MINUTE!!!
Does that not sound exactly like Jackie Warner’s new show Thintervention?? The new Bravo show where Jackie Warner (who is Jillian’s ex-girlfriend from back in the day) will go to family’s homes and give them a wellness makeover?? From the Bravo press release, “Thintervention will follow Warner as she works with people in their real lives with work and family.”
Jackie’s show will follow the stories of the subjects rather than being self-contained like Jillian’s, but this sounds all too familiar, doesn’t it??? It’s going to be the battle of the girl jocks.
