A big shout out to Ana B. who pointed me to an online interview with Jillian Michaels from “The Biggest Loser.” Not only does Jillian talk about “Cara” and “Brett,” she takes credit for finding Brett Hoebel for the show.
She said she took a Capoeira class that he was teaching in New York City and said he was so “bad ass” that she referred him to producers. I guess they liked what they saw. Here are more details on Cara and Brett and their training backgrounds.
The video clip with the interview has Jillian’s remarks at the 8:41 mark where she discusses the new trainers.
