Dolvett says that we’ll be wowed by the contestants’ transformations tonight, but that’s not the No. 1 thing he’s looking forward to.
“I’m excited to see everyone and excited to see the kids,” he told us in a conference call with fellow bloggers and journalists this morning. “I’ve been working so closely with the adults, but the kids—I want to see the joy in their faces. I’ve been really inspired by the young people and am ready to really celebrate their changes.”
He also gave us the scoop on the BL training “dream team” of himself, Bob and Jillian. While he loved working with Bob in previous seasons, he called Jillian the “missing link.”
“I think it sometimes takes a female to balance, and that’s what Bob and I needed,” he says. “We liken ourselves to the Avengers. We all have our own super powers, and we all have our three different styles. It’s great.”
Dolvett describes his own training style as tough, but lifting through caring.
“My style doesn’t come from someone pushing you with their own agenda,” he says. “It’s external and internal. I find the athlete both inside and out, at the same time.”
Oh, and how does Mr. Dolvett feel about being a sex symbol, alongside our dear Bob? (That smile, those arms! We couldn’t resist asking.)
“It’s fun,” Dolvett says with super cute embarrassing laughter. “I get a lot more emails now. I’ve been proposed to now more than ever before.”
Get more Dolvett cuteness during The Biggest Loser finale tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern and be sure to keep getting inspired after the show is over here!
