Biggest Loser News; Red Team Trainer Not Returning

Kim Lyons, the trainer who replaced Jillian Michaels on The Biggest Loser during its third season, will not appear on the show’s upcoming fifth season. Jillian Michaels, who returned this season, will return as a trainer alongside Bob Harper for The Biggest Loser 5.

A press release announcing the upcoming fifth season of the show, which will feature couples, says that “[t]he series features trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels.” Kim isn’t mentioned.

An NBC spokesperson confirmed to me exclusively that Kim will not return, as she had other “opportunities,” including the January release of her new book, Kim Lyons’ Your Body, Your Life: The 12-Week Program to Optimum Physical, Mental & Emotional Fitness. The spokesperson said it’s “a possiblity” Kim could return in the future—which, of course, Jillian did this season.

Kim’s publicists said essentially the same thing. “Given the timing of the new season and filming starting so soon after the current season’s closure, Kim had many prior commitments and projects […] that she had to focus on. She is still committed to the Biggest Loser family and remains a valuable part of the show. The door is absolutely open to her returning,” her publicist told me.

On Tuesday’s episode of The Biggest Loser 4, Kim found that her entire team had been eliminated from the competition, the first time that’s happened in the show’s history.
