'The Biggest Loser' Teen Participants Talk Bullying WIth Jillian Michaels (VIDEO)

"The Biggest Loser" is back with Jillian Michaels and for the first time kid participants. The three teen participants will serve as ambassadors who can hopefully inspire other kids to get healthy, according to NBC. Instead of focusing on shedding the pounds, the teen participants will be on the show to get healthier. The teens won't be subject to weigh-ins or elimination.

Michaels, who has become known for her tough training approach, adopts a different method when working with Noah "Biingo" Gray, Sanjana "Sunny" Chandrasekar and Lindsay Bravo.

"The goal is to introduce them to an active lifestyle and make it enjoyable," Michaels says in HuffPost TV's exclusive video below.

The clip below features Michaels meeting with the teen participants and speaking with them about being bullying by their peers.

"The Biggest Loser" premieres Sunday, January 6 at 9 p.m. EST and moves to its regular timeslot on Monday, January 7 at 8 p.m. EST.
