NBC ended speculation by announcing that former tennis champion Anna Kournikova will be replacing Jillian Michaels as the new celebrity trainer on the weight loss reality show “The Biggest Loser”. Michaels said that the present 11th season would be her last as she plans to concentrate on her family. The announcement was made during the live finale of the show where Kounikova made a surprise appearance.


The Russian beauty has earlier appeared on the show as a guest trainer where she did tennis based training session. There are also reports that trainers Cara Castronouva and Brett Hoebel, who joined the show for season 11, will be leaving the show and will be replaced by Dolvett Quince who will join Kournikova and Bob Harper.

The reality show which began in 2004 features over weight people competing to lose weight for a cash prize. The person who loses the highest percentage of weight is named the winner. The contestants are sent through a grueling work out program and encouraged healthy living and eating habits in order to lose weight.

Season 12 will premier on NBC in September 2011.
