Anna Kournikova: Biggest Loser's Next Trainer!

Anna Kournikova has been named the next trainer for the hit NBC reality series, Biggest Loser.

According to X17, NBC plans to make the announcement on the show’s season finale on May 24.

The 29-year-old Russian tennis star will join current coaches Cara Castronuova and Brett Hoebel, who both began training contestants on the show this past season. Longtime Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels will not be returning next season.

To keep in shape, Anna, who is 5’8, “runs, swims, lifts weights and plays tennis.”

    I wonder why they didn’t hire Jackie the trainer that had a show on Bravo. She is tough.

  • Maria

    Oh Jackie. She’d be great as the toughie trainer but i wonder why they didn’t asked her. But Anna should be interesting. however, would she be tough and be able to take all the BS and cursing from the fatties?

  • gg

  • Gwen

    Wow guys slow down, why all the hate? Why are women always the first to criticize other women. Give her a chance before you knock her. Oh and Jennie I think you have it wrong I think Enrique is her booty call :P

  • samBRITNEY HAS A MANS BODY

    she needs to get a hair cut. she looks pathetique having long bleached hair at 29. she’s ugly now, can’t believe how quickly her faced ages. in russia she is just normal looking girl, nothing pretyy, just ordinary.

  • TRUTHHERE

    SHE IS SO DESPERATE, ITS SAD. JUST A HAS BEEN TRYIN TO KEEP YOUNG.

  • lies

    HOW APPROPRIATE…ANNA IS THE BIGGEST LOSER…..NEVER WON A TOURNIMENT..NEVER..HAHAHAHAHHA

  • kerri

    She is gorgeous. I really hope her and Enrique have kids one day. They are both so beautiful.

  • Jess

    What an ugly woman. Most men hate her.

  • dogonit

    shes a BOW WOW horsey looking face and the biggest loser is perfect for her! doesnt anybody whoever watched tennis in the day she played what a BI-CH she was? and a sore loser? all her interviews she was rude and nasty like she was on the rag 24/7 AND FOR GWEN I DONT THINK ENRIQUE IS HER BOOTY CAL! HA THATS A JOKE ENRIQUE CAN HAVE ANY WOMAN HE WANTS, THIS LOSER NEEDS MORE HELP THEN SHE KNOWS!

  • lilia mazunina

    NO WONDER ‘CAUSE SHE’S JUST A LOSER HERSELF, YEAH.., A STUPID BITCH. LOL!

  • Allie

    She is a terrible idea for a trainer. The reason she didn’t do better in tennis was that she refused to go to the gym to lift weights as she thought it would make her too muscly and less womanly. But you could have won a tournament, honey!

    How is she going to train other people when she refused to do it herself?

  • Tinki

    For reals?? She clearly has body image issues and an eating disorder so her giving health/weight loss advice is going to be so fake and make the whole show a lie. I don’t watch biggest loser but as someone who has dealt with anorexia I know a fellow eating disordered person when I see one. It is a metal disorder which screws you up – the fact that she threw away her career to stay thin shows how messed up she was.

    I guess she will appeal to the males who watch but her giving any of her “real” weight loss tips (ie dont eat for 3 days, vomit if you eat too much or smoke to speed up your metabolism) I doubt is gonna happen. She looks so unhealthy herself, I cannot stand hypocrites – do as I say not as I do. Maybe she is better now, but unless she got professional help I don’t think it is healthy for her or for the people she will be training to have someone with such a warped sense of perception to be training anyone in weight loss.

  • Longhorn

    This is a bad move. Being a former athlete doesn’t qualify her to help extremely obese people lose weight and make healthier choices. The other trainers have the experience and credentials to work with the contestants. Has Anna even been certified? Again, bad move. If I were a contestant I would be leary of having her train me.

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    She was on the cover of the first men’s mag I ever bought, and thus gave me many a moment of pleasure, so she gets a pass for life.

  • katey

    she was anorexic a few years ago and does have eating issues plus SHE NEVER EVEN GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL let alone have any DEGREE in weight loss or obesity for these people. BAD BAD BAD choice i will be writing a letter to the show and producers!

  • anonymous

    I did an interview and the hole nine yeard to replace jilian micheals on the biggest looser and all i can say is BIG MISTAKE. they didn’t wanted somebody has “though” for the new season but …come on! This girl has NO personality to be on a show like this… and what about training experience? Does she actually has a bachelor in exercice science? Does she even know what she is doing? This all tells you one thing. its a TV SHOW. they want EYE CANDY. You don’t get to train and follow obese people, transform there body just because you played Tennis for a few years.
    this show just took a huge drop in my eyes. It’s very disapointing they go for somebody like her rather then having somebody who has the resume to prove they can make a change in people’s lifes.

  • bryguy

    Terrible choice. one episode she was on was possibly the most boring training session ever on the series. Cara is probably LOVING this choice because she will certainly gain popularity. Bob is going to have his work cut out for him.

    I suspect Anna will quit after a year….
