Based off of her tweets, I'm getting that she's off the Biggest Loser after season 11 when her contract is up. Anyone got the scoop? Any idea what she's planning on doing afterward?

Her show this summer was a success so maybe they'll have her do more. You never know until the announcement is made. If they really want to keep her on BL, they may give her a contract renewal she can't refuse.

I hope she stays. The show really lost something when that other chick was on.

Wasn't a fan of her. Was so glad when Jillian came back and destroyed her team:D

That was my favorite season!

I wouldn't be surprised if she left BL. She has so much going on, her other show, the dvd's, product line, appareances etc. She's big on educating people so I can see her with a Daytime talk show! There are so many ways from food prep, exercise, Dr. Jill moments etc that she can explore.

BL without Jillian, won't be the same! They can bring in another trainer, but Jillian is irreplaceable!

just read an article (http://www.tvsquad.com/2010/12/10/jillian-michaels-to-leave-biggest-loser-after-season-11/?icid=maing|aim|2|link4|30320) she will definitely be leaving, but it sounds like maybe for only a year. anyone know who the new trainers will be and if Bob will be staying?


I don't think her products and workouts will sell as well if she isn't on the show, so it'll be interesting to see what she does next or if she's letting her fame fade out.

I saw an article earlier that said they've already hired two new trainers to replace her and they are going to announced next week. Also that they will be on season 11 with her to help with the transition.

I don't watch the show. Didn't know it was on early on, but once I knew the show was on I didn't watch because I'm not a fan of hers at all. Now that she is leaving I may actually watch.

I found her to be a bit harsh sometimes, but there are times when harsh is what folks need to get moving and drop the pounds. Her teams have always done well with their weight loss. She doesn't beat around the bush either, which I respect. Be honest and direct.

I will miss seeing her on the show. I hope she will come back someday!

I think I know who one of the new trainers is! It's this guy (http://www.dietsinreview.com/diet_column/12/brett-hoebel-the-new-biggest-loser-trainer/). He has workouts with Beachbody. I like his workouts but I can't really picture him being sympathetic with overweight and obese people like Jillian is though... we'll see! Anyone pick up who the girl trainer might be? It seemed she was trying to do the yelling like Jillian does but it didn't sound as motivating as when Jillian yells :D

we were just talking about instructors with too much butt crack. Pants hanging way to low. Jillian I think is the Winner over Jackie Werner.

Jillian has said before that she wanted a talk show. She has also said she didn't want to compete with Oprah. This is Oprah's last season. Coincidence? I wouldn't be surprised if Jillian has a show on Oprah's new network. I don't think that Jillian is leaving because they hired new trainers to push her out, they aren't that stupid. They hired new trainers because she's leaving and I don't think there's any changing her mind this time.

at least she knows or has an agenda to know when it's time to move on. It's nothing wrong in moving on. Sometimes we need a push in life to do it but she's doing it before she gets push. She made her mark and now she can make many more in the Fitness industry..

She is currently in the process of adopting a baby from AFrica. She said she wants kids and I think that she wants a talk show too.

I know you all can tell from my avatar, I'm African American. I would like to know, what is the big appeal for White America to adopt African Babies and Chinese Babies? I don't get it.

Are they trying to show the world they really do love us or they feel African Babies are more available?

Why not just adopt a baby in their own state and enjoy the baby.

From what I understand it's more time consuming, costly, and more red tape to adopt privately in the states. Also many people don't wish to be foster parents and not know if the child's parental rights will get severed or if the child will go back with their bio parents etc

tytbody, that's a good question! I'm not African American and I also wonder what people's motive is....my guess is that most people do it because they just want a baby to love and some of those people want a baby that is not likely to get adopted by others and some of those people might find that it's not as pricey as adopting a caucasian baby (this is a wild guess) and I've heard that caucasian babies are less available. I know someone who adopted two kids from Russia who were Asian in appearance. They didn't have a lot of money but now they have a family, which I think is great.

I seriously doubt that people's motive is to show that they really do love a certain minority group. Adoption is a serious matter and I can't imagine anyone taking it lightly. I could be wrong and would love to hear other opinions though!

Well, I have to tell you that if I was into adopting a baby, I would not adopt an African baby for sure! If I had to choose from non-Caucasian ones, my choice would be Latin American (Peru, Ecuador, something like that).
I don't know how it works in the US (I am in Canada) but I have a friend who adopted 2 babies from China. I asked her the same question (when they were getting baby #1) - I thought that people would want, in general, a caucasion baby because it would not be apparent, at a glance, that the baby was not their biological baby. (not that there is anything wrong with adoption, of course). She explained to me that it cost approximately $20,000 to get a Chinese baby versus over $30,000 for a Russian baby. Also, the adoption from China - or rather the price for adoption from China - included a trip to China to pick up the baby and at the same time, a week or so of a vacation cruise (for the entire group of adoptive parents) to bond with their new babies. I believe the trip to Russia to pick up the baby would have to be paid for on top of the price of the adoption.
However, they got the first baby some 6 years ago so my memory is a bit hazy, but this was it in a nutshell.

I don't recall why they didn't try other countries - Romania, for example - but it could be because they had to go through an agency and perhaps each agency "provides" kids from a few select countries only, don't know.

Also, I wanted to add that when my friend was submitting the adoption request for baby # 2, she had to hurry to get it done before a certain deadline because China "closed the gate" on international adoptions. I was surprised to hear that because I thought they must have tons of babies, especially girls who not highly valued. If the decision still holds, I don't know.

and that rule is still going on?? the only want a boy baby? In 2011??????
yes, there are a lot of other countries I would think would be cool to adopt from. I'm an adoptive parent of 32 years. I got my son right here in good ol, USA, and daughter.

So I guess there must be trips and a lot of hoopla about save the country or some of it is going to the country and could be a tax write off.

Still not a good enough reason. Adoption is great but I think the children just don't get the full gist of their own heritage when adopted out of the one they were born in. Lot of work. Lot of work explaining to children as it is. You still worry, at leas I do, Did i do it right?... lol

But it's not for me to say if I did it right or wrong. I did the best I could and that was part of my job here on earth.

Maybe I should look at it as it being the adoptive parents job to get those children here in USA so they can do the job they were also called to do.

I don't know all the reasons that people adopt from Africa. I know that some just see all the heartbreak that goes on there for an orphan and want to do what they can. My husband and I are in the middle of adopting from the U.S. foster system. We have told them that we don't care what race the child(ren) is. I know that our reason for that is that we truly do not care about the color of our children's skin. We want children to love and we want to be able to provide a loving forever home to children who may otherwise not have one. It doesn't and shouldn't matter what color they are. I am hoping that something similar is the reason behind Jillian (and others) adopting from other countries. Family is about love, not matching skin.

I am very glad to hear you reason for adopting from U.S. Foster system. I just wish the *stars* didn't glorify it like it's a right of passage. Loving children that got here is awesome. These children would otherwise have a more difficult life if left with the parents who are unable to handle the responsibility.

The movie, the Blind Side, great movie. I can appreciate that love.
