Ruben Studdard Is The Heaviest Contestant On ‘Biggest Loser’

Either I haven’t been paying attention or this is the first time an announcement is being made.  But American Idol winner Ruben Studdard is hoping to have the same kind of success on NBC‘s The Biggest Loser.  Billboard is reporting that Ruben is the biggest contestant in this 15th season, weighing in at 462 pounds.

“You know, the funny thing is, I was actually working the night before, so I didn’t get an opportunity to have a pig-out session, no,” Studdard said in a phone call. “I actually flew from a concert to the ranch. … I’m sure I probably would have had a piece of cake or something before I went up to the ranch for months and months.”

The new season starts on October 8th at 8 PM Eastern.  I really want Ruben to do well.  He seems like a great guy and I think seeing him as a healthier version of himself would be awesome.  Ruben plans to record another album after the show as well so hopefully all of these things will come together for him.  I’ll be tuning in this season.  How about you?

  2. What’s the point in doing a show like this if you not going to keep the weight off. Ruban has been through weigh loss programs before and lost close to 100 pounds and didn’t keep it off. They need to put Gabby Sidibe on this show as well.
