Poll: Do you want Jillian Michaels back on "Biggest Loser"?

Do you want Jillian Michaels back on "The Biggest Loser"?

That's the possiblity being raised after the news that Michaels is out as a co-host on daytime TV's "The Doctors." 

Michaels was the only layperson to co-host the medically themed daytime talk show. Although that was initially used as a selling point -- the idea being she could represent the viewer at home amid all the medical jargon -- in the end "it wasn’t the fit we both hoped for," a representative for the show told The Wrap. She also rubbed some viewers the wrong way.

So here's the scenario: Michaels is out of a job. "The Biggest Loser" continues to be a workhorse for NBC but the weight-loss reality show has seen its ratings sag over the past two seasons.

And "Biggest Loser" trainer Bob Harper told The Times in a recent interview that he would "never say 'never' " about the possibility of Michaels' return.

Ashley Sandberg, a spokeswoman for Michaels, echoed Harper's remark when she was asked about the possibility of reuniting Bob & Jillian: "We never say never."

A spokeswoman for the show declined to comment Sunday.

What do you think, Show Trackers? Should Michaels return? Or leave the training to Bob and Dolvett? Vote!
