The tennis hottie has a new job! The recent rumor of Anna Kournikova’s Biggest Loser gig reportedly will formally be announced during the finale on Tuesday.
While it’s been known that Jillian Michaels would not be returning to the popular weight loss reality show next season so that she can ‘focus on family’, the rumors are circulating that the gorgeous Russian tennis player is slated to be her replacement.
TBL scores some big points nabbing the blonde beauty. We have already heard that Cara Castronuova and Brett Hoebel are confirmed as the other two new trainers for next season. Readers, what do you think of Cara and Brett? I’m not a big fan of Cara. I’ve tried, but I just haven’t been able to warm up to her. As for Brett — I knew of him because of his Beachbody fitness program, Rev Abs. We didn’t get to see much of his personality, which is a shame. You know who they should have gotten as one of the new trainers? Tony Horton — the mastermind behind Power 90 and P90X. If you’ve done these workouts, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
So back to Anna Kournikova. Biggest Loser has had the 29-year-old on the show before, in Season 10 to be exact, when she showed the contestants some moves on…wait for it…the tennis court. Remember that?
I have to raise the question though, is Kournikova trainer material? What kind of experience does she have? While she’s been retired from the tennis circuit for quite a few years now, she has been a marathon and triathlon competitor. But really, is she even a certified trainer?
With the loss of Jillian, I’m guessing the franchise needed someone who would attract the viewers. They certainly found it in Anna, and it will be interesting to see how she does next season.
I want to know what you think! Leave me your comments below.
