Performer Ruben Studdard was given not one, but two second chances on "The Biggest Loser," one surrounded by controversy and rumors of conspiracy. Studdard has gone on the record now to quell any and all of the rumors around his return to the show, especially after being eliminated for the second time on the most recent episode.
"It was difficult leaving," he told reporters. "But I had a lot of work waiting on me when I left the ranch. As soon as the next day started, my work started. I will be out the whole holiday season, so I won't be home, but if I was, we would definitely be having a healthy Christmas this year," he added.
Studdard is currently on tour with CeCe Winans, Peabo Bryson, and Melissa Manchester. He is eager to return to his life as a performer but would not have complained had his time at the Biggest Loser ranch been longer. The once 462 pound performer is now down to 349 pounds and hopes to continue losing weight on his own. more >>
