One of the most popular female tennis players ever, 30-year old Anna Kournikova used to be one of the most common search strings on Google. She may have never won a WTA title in singles, but her beauty attracted a lot more fans outside tennis-dom and that made up her celebrity status.

Kournikova made her television debut as a personal trainer on the season premiere of Biggest Loser, replacing Jullian Michaels who wanted to focus on motherhood.

“Learning so much being a professional athlete, being coached by the best coaches, trained by the best nutritionists and best psychologists, I can’t wait to share all that with the Biggest Loser contestants,” she said.

Her debut didn’t get a good start though, she and her team came in last having the lowest pounds lost and Debbie getting eliminated. But that doesn’t mean she’s down and out yet.

Maybe she can turn her team into the spice guys of The Biggest Loser?
