Anna KournikovaWith Jillian Michaels out of the picture, could Anna Kournikova be taking her place? According to reports, the tennis star will join the NBC's 'The Biggest Loser' as a trainer next season.

Kournikova will join new trainers Cara Castronuova and Brett Hoebel as the show undergoes major changes in the wake of Jillian Michaels' departure from the hit show, X17 Online reports.

Michaels will serve as a co-host on 'The Doctors' and a correspondent on 'Dr. Phil.'

An official announcement regarding Kournikova's role on 'Biggest Loser' is expected after the show's season finale on Tuesday.

TV 101: Trimming the Fat With Television

by Dr. Ryan Vaughan, PhD (no, seriously), posted May 18th 2011 5:00PM
Have you heard? Americans are really fat. I know that's a generalization, but seemingly everywhere I turn I'm hearing how fat we are as a nation -- from educators, scientists, my mom, the full-length mirror in my bathroom. It was always easy for me to ignore the whispers of nationwide obesity, even as they turned into firm scolding then into outright screaming, but you know how I know it's a concern of gargantuan proportions? It's on TV.

How can you tell when an issue has turned from mild concern into full-blown epidemic? When you can't turn on the telly without seeing a show on every channel. In this case, there are now roughly a thousand shows about fat people losing weight and getting healthy. The question becomes: is it a call to actually tone flabby arms and get healthy, or an exploitative endeavor to help our rotund masses reassure themselves that "even I wouldn't eat that?"
