Jillian Micheals had no idea Rachel Fredrickson had lost 155 pounds by the show’s series finale. During the live finale, Jillian and fellow trainer Bob Harper, looked stunned when Rachel revealed her super skinny figure. Jillian even mouthed “oh my god” several times. Rachel went from a size 20 to a size 0/2. Jillian talked to HuffPost Live in a recent Skype interview and spilled the details.
“Nobody told me like, ‘Oh hey, Rachel is very, very thin.’ Bob [Harper] and I had no idea. Nobody had told us. Nobody had said anything to us. So yes, I was stunned. Obviously I thought she had lost too much weight.”
“I was immediately concerned and wondering how this happened.”
“In my opinion, this had fallen through those checks and balances. With that said, anybody who gains too much weight or loses too much weight, ironically these are manifestations of the same issue. It simply means that somebody is utilizing their relationship with food to manage emotions that are painful, hard, difficult to face or control.”
