'The Biggest Loser' Premiere Recap: Jillian, Soft? Not Even Close

Welcome. Back. Jillian. Have you missed her? Oh gosh, I have. Jillian is back this season with the show's main focus shifting to combating childhood obesity. There are three child contestants this season: Sunny (16), Noah -- aka "Bingo" (13), and Lindsay (13). The rules are different for them, as they should be. These three will spend some time on the ranch, but will stay mostly at home. The trainers will check in with them regularly and they have immunity for the entire season. While there has been some controversy with having contestants that are kids, the way they have the rules set for them makes it a brilliant example of the ongoing need to put an end to childhood obesity. The kids are called "Ambassadors for Change" on the show, and simply want to fix their respective eating habits while they're still young.

The Return of Jillian
Now for the trainers. Enter Bob, and the crowd predictably goes wild. He is the only face on the show that has been there since the very first season. How does this man still look the same as he did back then? Perhaps his whole "healthy lifestyle" thing could be the key? Next up is Dolvett. Mr. Hard Work, Dedication. Let's be honest, he's a beautiful man with an incredible attitude. Last, but not least, Ms. Jillian Michaels. She makes her entrance through the audience and pounces on Bob the moment she reaches the stage. She's a new mother of two. Will that change her training style? We'll soon see.
