Trainer Bob Harper feels “possessed” by Jillian Michaels

HollywoodNews.com: Trainer Bob Harper tells us that although Jillian Michaels left “The Biggest Loser” after last season, her spirit lives on, in a way. “I’ve gotten possessed by Jillian a lot,” he jokingly admits. “You’re going to see me in a different way, not taking ‘no’ for an answer, getting people to stand on their own two feet.”

The beloved Bob, who has been known to shed a tear and share a hug with an emotional contestant every few episodes, has never been easy on his subjects. But he’s even tougher these days, to hear him tell it. He says, “Now that Jillian has moved on and is working with ‘The Doctors,” I’m getting a chance to spread my wings in my own way. I’ve got to do what I can for these people, as passionately as possible.”

According to Bob, his new, high-profile fellow trainer — tennis star Anna Kournikova — is bringing plenty of passion to the show. “She’s a sweet woman and a really strong competitor,” he says. However, he points out that she is brand-new to the game of helping morbidly obese people get into shape. “It’s going to be a real struggle, I think, because it’s such a specific job. You can come in with all the heart you want, but you also have to know what to do.” Trainer Dolvett Quince is also newly aboard “The Biggest Loser,” which launches its Season 12 on Sept. 20.
