When Rachel Frederickson revealed her weight loss on The Biggest Loser finale, even Jillian Michaels was agasp. Until now, though, she hadn't opened up about it.

"I was stunned," the trainer told HuffPost Live.

"I thought she had lost too much weight."

Michaels said the show implements a number of checks and balances, including having the trainers check in with contestants even after the ranch.

But she had no idea Rachel Frederickson had been losing so much on her own, bringing her weight loss total to a staggering 155 pounds (out of 260).

"In my opinion, this had fallen through those checks and balances," she said of The Biggest Loser winner and her controversial season-ending reveal.

Frederickson herself has since said she may have gone to an extreme, admitting: "Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic in my training to get to the finale."

Fans weren't the only ones shocked by The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson's weight loss. Jillian Michaels herself was at a loss for words.

The personal trainer appeared flabbergasted by Frederickson's 155-pound weight loss (from 260 to 105) on the show's season 15 finale on Tuesday.

When the 24-year-old former high school swimmer walked out onstage for the first time since leaving the ranch last fall ... this was Jill's reaction:

Michaels could be seen mouthing "Oh my God" after looking at Rachel Frederickson. Several times, in fact, before NBC's camera panned away.

Shrinking from 260 pounds and a size 20 to 105 pounds and a size 0/2, she beat fellow finalists David Brown and Bobby Saleem for the $250,000 prize.

"It's crazy!" the 5-foot-4 reality star said. "But it's not about that. [My body] is absolutely the prize ... to have this energy and to feel alive means the world."

"I lost that athlete, I lost that inner confidence, that self-worth. Throughout the season I started to find that girl again, and at the triathlon, [she] was there.

A cheating scandal has rocked The Biggest Loser.

On last night's episode of the weight loss competition, Alison Sweeney announced that Jillian Michaels had been caught breaking the rules and, consequently, last week's results have now been invalidated.

In other words: welcome back to the show, former American Idol winner Ruben Studdard!

Studdard was eliminated last Tuesday, but will return to the program next week with an unexpected fresh start.

The Biggest Loser isn't simply returning with new episodes in January. It's bringing back an former favorite and focusing on an issue that plagues the nation.

That's right, Jillian Michaels - who exited the NBC competition in 2011 in order to focus on her new family - will once again be the head trainer next year, but this time she will be barking orders at a cast of 13-17-year olds, as The Biggest Loser tackles the issue of childhood obesity.

Cue that fist pump, Michelle Obama!

Michaels will join trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince on a season that will feature three teams, each comprised of adults and one teen. The younger contestants will play a role in the success of their squads, but will not be eligible for elimination.

“As a former overweight teen, I know firsthand how dramatically weight issues can affect every aspect of a child’s life,” said Michaels. ”Having recently become a mother of two, I am more passionate than ever about helping empower children and families with the information and resources they need to live a healthier life.”
