SERIES PREMIER The Real Jillian
Air Date January 19th 2016
REVIEW: Who hasn’t heard the name Jillian Michaels? I’m guessing not many. She rose to fame while being on the show The Biggest Loser, as a personal trainer. Contestants competed against each other through diet and exercise to see who could lose the most weight. Her Boot camp style both physically and verbally was brutal. She was known to have brought contestants to their knees, crying and breaking spirits. This show earned her the title of America’s Toughest Trainer. After the show ended, she took her training and incorporated it into the general public in the form of DVD’S, books, u tube videos and speaking engagements. With 15 million DVD’S sold, she has written 7 books, developed an active wear clothing line and invested in products and businesses she believes in, Jillian Michaels has created an empire. She now has a reality show that let’s viewers into her private life. Here we see the genuine Jillian and not the trainer from Biggest Loser. We meet her partner of 7 years, Heidi, their two children and a house full of animals. We see the same struggles and triumphs faced by all families. Most of all we see Jillian, the loving partner, mother and friend we all would love to have. The show is funny and heart warming at the same time. I love this show and it seems the rest of America does also. Buckle up. It’s going to be a wild ride, Jillian style!
