  • Not all pit bulls are attack Jillian for the stereotype

    Jillian is back. While she may be a good trainer, I don't think she knows her dog breeds very well. During one of her workout sessions she claimed she wanted to make her contestants into "attack dogs" she wanted her contestants to be "pit bulls". Despite the inappropriate comment linking pit bull to attack dog, I take issue with the fact that many pit bulls I know are actually more lap dogs than attack dogs. If she wanted to compare her contestants to a breed that is known for long bouts of exercising, pit bulls surely are not that breed. Why not try golden retriever? They at least like to chase balls.

    In an episode with strong messaging against bullying, I wish Jillian and the Biggest Loser would consider not bullying the pit bull breed and focus on getting contestants healthy.
