Will Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels cross picket lines today? She says: “no”

Biggest Loser trailer Jillian Michaels said she will not be crossing picket lines today on the show’s set, where crew members are striking and producers are reportedly hiring replacement workers.

On Twitter, I asked Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper if they’d cross picket lines today.

Jillian responded to me with a single word: “no.”

While it’s possible that she isn’t scheduled to work today, and she didn’t respond, “no, I fully support the striking crew.” But as fans responding to her statement see it as an indication she will not cross picket lines, it seems less unlikely she’d respond publicly if she meant “no, but I will tomorrow or another day.”
