Anna Kournikova Confirmed as 'Biggest Loser' Trainer

It’s official: Anna Kournikova will be The Biggest Loser‘s new celebrity trainer!

The 29-year-old Russian-born tennis star is joining the NBC reality show as longtime trainer Jillian Michaels leaves.

But sources also told NYMag‘s Vulture that current trainers Brett Hoebel and Cara Castronuova will not be returning.

Executive producer Todd Lubin wouldn’t comment on Brett and Cara, but did tell Vulture the show “intentionally tried to not replace Jillian.”

“[Anna] grew up with very little in Moscow, pounding tennis balls every day when she was 5. That’s the drive she’s bringing to the show,” he added.

@Who?: a so-called tennis star who achieved considerable fame thanks to her looks 10 years ago but who never amounted to anything.

I would like for her to be my personal trainer.

Hitting balls all day when you are a kid isn’t drive- it’s called PLAYING.
This picture of Anna shows her true face structure without good angles or photoshop, she’s not as pretty as I thought.

ANNA IS TRULY UNATTRACTIVE AND MANLY LOOKING
SHE NEEDS TO CUT THAT HAIR CIRCA 1986 POISON

OMG! It’s a shame of Russia. Sorry for my Inglish…

You must be kidding….If that “drive” was something,she would have won herself a singles title in the first place…Besides,she is NOT a professional trainer…You might as well ask Pamela Anderson to do the job as she is much hotter…lol Anna doesn’t even look healthy because she is too skinny…Come on people…Yawn…
