Biggest Loser Brings Back Jillian for 2013

An NBC press release says  "The Biggest Loser" kicks off in early January 2013 with the return of Jillian Michaels and a few teenage participants in addition to adult contestants.

The press release says that Michaels, who will work with trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince, has recently become a mother of two. 

After last year's disastrous Season 13, it will be interesting to see if there are changes made in how contestants participate. While controversy and conflict is part of any good story, the bullying and backbiting made the show nearly unwatchable, with few likable contestants to root for. 

In Season 14, contestants will be divided into three teams and supervised by trainers Harper, Michaels and Quince. Each trainer/team will be paired with at least one child participant (age 13-17) who will compete with and contribute to their respective teams, but the kids will not be eligible for elimination. 

They will work at both the ranch and at home, and their progress will be featured in every episode.
