Is “Mama” June Shannon going to join “The Biggest Loser”? A new report suggests the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” matriarch is angling for a spot on the hit NBC weight loss competition show. Shannon was spotted working out with a famous trainer on Friday at a Hollywood park, doing weight and resistance exercises.

TMZ says she wants to be a contestant on “The Biggest Loser,” and would like to lose 100 pounds. Gossip Cop has reached out to reps for both the TV show and Shannon about her possibly joining the program, but we have yet to hear back. It’s no secret that since “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was canceled by TLC because Shannon was dating a convicted child molester that she’s been trying to get back on TV.

One week ago, Shannon was rushed to a Georgia hospital with a temperature of 103 degrees. Once in the emergency room, it was determined that she was suffering from severe dehydration and pneumonia. Shannon was treated and then released, with doctors’ orders to remain in bed for a few days. Apparently, that was enough, and now she’s working out, seemingly all in the hopes of once again being on TV, be it on “The Biggest Loser” or another show. What do you think about Shannon’s trimming down for TV plan?
