American Idol Season 2 Winner Ruben Studdard will compete on another reality show – the 15th installment of The Biggest Loser, which airs this fall on NBC!!

Studdard, 35, who was nicknamed the Velvet Teddy Bear for his cuddly physique and silky-smooth vocals is ready to change that image in the name of health.

One time the R&B singer dropped 70 pounds, but he started gaining it back after he got divorced last year.

He says his family has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes and heart problems. He says if he doesn’t “fix things now,” he’ll be in trouble.

How do you think Ruben will do on The Biggest Loser?  Will you be watching??
