Ruben Studdard…From ‘Idol’ to ‘The Biggest Loser’

Studdard_BiggestLoser_2013Ruben Studdard didn’t even get one last pig-out session before making his way to “The Biggest Loser” ranch.

“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 35-year-old singer became famous winning another reality show – “American Idol” – but had seen his weight climb in the years since. He is the 15th season’s heaviest contestant at 462 pounds. “The Biggest Loser” returns Oct. 8 at 8 p.m on NBC.
