'The Biggest Loser': Jillian Michaels Apologizes To Her Team For Last Week's Controversy

It was a very subdued Jillian Michaels who had to sit down her team and apologize on "The Biggest Loser." Last week, it was revealed that Michaels had given her team caffeine supplements without the doctor's permission prior to the previous weigh-in. This invalidated that weigh-in, allowing "American Idol" winner Ruben Studdard back onto the Ranch, and penalized her White Team.

“I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. Every decision I have ever made, I try to make with regards to what’s best for your health and, boy, this one certainly backfired and you guys were collateral damage," Michaels said. "You did nothing wrong. You did nothing wrong.”

But her team said that they were with her. As Jay put it, "We’ve gotta stand behind Jillian just as much as she stands behind us.” And so, they buckled down and looked forward. But was her apology sincere? Michaels hinted on Twitter that she was being used by the show's producers as a scapegoat. Was it all a ploy to bring back the show's first-ever celebrity contestant?

Whatever happened, Buddy TV's Eva Des Lauriers was glad to see Jillian doing what she does best. "Jillian often causes waves on 'The Biggest Loser,' which is why the season without her was such a snooze," she wrote.

"The Biggest Loser" continues Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
