For me, I never understood why they brough Anna Kournikova on to the biggest loser. While she is/was an athlete, I never saw her as a trainer. However, while watching the show and the support she received from her contestants I thought I might be wrong. It turns how that she may have been hired to tr to fill Jillian Michael's shoes (who always appeared as “TV's Toughest Trainer”) but if you listen to Jillian's podcast, or watched her “Losting It” show you know that Jillian also has a software side that allows her to get inside the heads of her contestants. Apparently not the case with Anna.
Anna Kournikova had a hard childhood growing up in Russia. From what I've read, she may not have been so sympathetic to her overweight contestants who were complaining about the trainin beging to hard. One report stated she was a “Nightmare.”
I'm glad they are keeping Dolvett Quince who I feel is a qualified trainer. It will be interesting to see if the squeak in another female as they have almost always had a female be it Jillian, Anna, or going back Kim Lyons who replaced Jillian when she left the first time.
What did you think of Anna? Will you miss her?
