Jillian Michaels on Leaving Biggest Loser: 'I Felt Ashamed'Callie Beusman7/17/14 9:16amFiled to: dirt bag2255EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkFormer Biggest Loser yell-mentor Jillian Michaels has opened up about the reasons she left the show, and it's more or less exactly what you would expect.AdvertisementMichaels told People that she and the producers had a few fundamental disagreements, one of which was the way she was portrayed in recent seasons. "In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love," she said. Recently, though, she thinks she was depicted as overly harsh: "You saw none of the relationships, none of the bonds that I build with my clients." Which, in her opinion, caused "millions of people [to] have this warped perception of me."She also mentions the controversy last season after one contestant lost 60% of her body weight and later said that maybe she was "a little too enthusiastic in [her] training to get to the finale."
