Anna Kournikova, The Biggest Loser

The Biggest Loser is dropping something other than LBs.

After only one season on NBC's reality weight-loss show, Anna Kournikova is exiting as trainer and cohost. So, what's the deal with her short-lived gig?

Kournikova was brought on season 12 of The Biggest Loser to replace Jillian Michaels, but the former tennis pro was, per the Hollywood Reporter (which first broke the news), a behind-the-scenes "nightmare" with both contestants and the production team. On camera, the contestants found the blonde beauty even harsher than Michaels had been.

Said Kournikova: "I enjoyed my time on the Biggest Loser ranch. Although I will not be returning as a full time trainer on season 13, I will always be a part of The Biggest Loser family and my commitment to bettering lives through health and fitness will continue."

Happy to hear that Kournikova is out? Or were you a fan of her tough love?
