Jillian Michaels may be leaving The Biggest Loser camp once again because she’s tired of always being the bad person, or the bad coach, according to inside sources. Michaels left the show once, but now she’s regretting her return.

“They paint her to be an a-hole. She’s the only woman trainer, and she gets a bad rap,” the source told Us Weekly about the fitness guru. “She’s sick of being painted as the bad guy.”

Jillian Michaels Breaks Silence

Although Michaels, 40, hasn’t spoken publicly about her feelings about the show, she has opened up to several friends. She tells people that she is very frustrated. However, her colleagues have nothing bad to say about her.

“Everyone who knows Jillian knows she is the sweetest woman. No one can ever say a bad word about her. She’s nice, calm, and so sure of herself,” a source said.

Michaels, a mom of two, was one of the original trainers on The Biggest Loser. With the exception of a brief break in 2006, she was a steady presence on the series until 2011, when she left to “focus on becoming a mommy and doing more charity work,” she said via Twitter. Two years later, she returned for the competition’s 14th season.

Now, having just finished filming the controversial 15th season — during which winner Rachel Frederickson shrunk to a tiny 105 pounds, shocking Michaels, fellow trainer Bob Harper, and millions of at-home viewers — the Losing It With Jillian alum wants out.

The Biggest Loser

The Biggest Loser debuted on NBC in 2004. The show centers on overweight contestants attempting to lose the most weight and to fight for a cash prize. There are different variations of The Biggest Loser around the world. Each country has made its own adaptation to the show; however, the contestants always have the same goal: to lose the highest percentage of weight (or most weight) to become the Biggest Loser.

The biggest weight loss from the show is Danny Cahill from season 8, who lost 55.58% of his total body weight. The second contestant is Rachel Frederickson from season 15, who lost 59.62% of her total body weight.
