Sad news for Ajay fans, great news for her detractors. It seems Ajay will not be back to host the 5th series of The Biggest Loser Australia next year.
Ajay Rochester will no longer host Channel Ten’s The Biggest Loser.
The network confirmed today that Rochester is leaving the popular weight-loss reality TV series after four seasons.
“Ajay has been a valued member of The Biggest Loser family and we wish her well,” said chief programming officer David Mott, adding Rochester was pursing “new opportunities”.
It has been a tough year for the 39-year-old.
In January, Rochester avoided conviction on 23 charges of welfare fraud after accepting more than $14,000 in Centrelink payments to which she was not entitled.
Previously named Lee Ann Towler, Rochester shot to fame as the author of books Confessions Of A Reformed Dieter, Blubberguts and The Lazy Girl’s Guide To Losing Weight And Getting Fit.
She began hosting The Biggest Loser in 2006.

Personally, I am gutted as I really liked her — but I know a lot of people found her to be a poor host. The only question now, is who will replace her?
I have heard whispers and fan campagins to get Alison Braun of season 3 the gig, hmm. Would you like to see Alison as host? Feel free to add your support on the official forums or drop them an email about it.
Thanks to every one who watched and commented throughout the season, it’s been a good one and The Biggest Loser Australia continues to be my favourite show. Don’t forget The Biggest Loser UK has just started and I will see you all next year if not before.
If you would like to express your gratitude by donating towards the costs of running RealityTVFan.org that would be very much appreciated.

Just a note about some shows you guys will be waiting for today, as you can see I have a lot to upload today — typical that every thing comes at once hey?
The Amazing Race 14 Episode # 10 is being uploaded right now and should be posted shortly.
The Biggest Loser Aus 4 Episode # 74 is currently being transfered to my computer and should be uploaded at around the regular time I do it (5 – 6pm GMT)
The Biggest Loser Aus 4 Finale is a huge file and it takes me about 10 times as long to do everything that needs doing and I currently have not even started transferring it. I will post it as soon as I can but you can expect that to be much later this evening.
The Biggest Loser UK Premiere airs here in the UK in a few hours time but is taking low priority. It is possible I won’t even get to post that today at all so please be patient.
Britain’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 2 airs here in the UK later tonight and most likely won’t get posted until tomorrow afternoon.
Also note that I am in ‘hiding’ until I have seen The Biggest Loser Aus Finale myself, I don’t want to know who wins so I am not visiting youtube, reading pms, reading comments here etc etc so if you see people asking questions that this post answers it would help if you can pass it on for me, thanks
