TV Review: Thintervention With Jackie Warner

Two years ago, Bravo canceled a popular show called Work Out amid much controversy and drama, cause by comments that may or may not have been said by trainer and gym owner Jackie Warner about a breast cancer survivor’s implants. While much about what happened hasn’t been revealed publicly, it meant the end of one of the few reality shows I enjoyed and watched. Now, however, Jackie has returned with a new show called Thintervention With Jackie Warner on the same network.

The new show differs quite a bit from the old one. Sky Sport Spa, Jackie’s gym, is no longer the setting, though she has a new gym. All of the other trainers, who created such interesting drama, are also gone, replaced by one assistant, Craig Ramsay, who appeared very little in the first episode, and only in the context of helping train. Similarly, there is also a therapist, but she is shown only while in session.

In fact, the focus has shifted from the people doing the training to the trainees themselves. Eight clients are trying to lose varying amounts of weight. One some viewers may recognize is former cast member Jeana Keough from another Bravo show, Real Housewives of Orange County, now divorced and plumped up. I never watched her former show, so I don’t know how she currently compares to when she was last seen, but that’s the impression given by her conversations so far. The other contestants were no one I had heard of or seen before. Jeana seems to have a bit of a crush on fellow contestant Joe, but the only one that stood out to me in the pilot is Nikki, a frequent smoker and drinker who does not wish to give up the lifestyle.

As far as reality shows go, this one is typical. Meaning, I will not be watching it. But if you are into weight loss types of programs, this one may be fore you. Thintervention With Jackie Warner airs Mondays nights at 10pm on Bravo.
