Despite his status as the heaviest contestant this season on The Biggest Loser, Ruben Studdard struggled to keep up with the impressive weight loss achievements of his competitors. As such, we weren’t all that surprised to see the American Idol alum booted from the competition last night. Still, despite his failure to capture a second reality television victory, Ruben still feels he’s a champion in his own right.
Ruben Studdard’s highly-publicized stint on The Biggest Loser has officially drawn to a close. The singer would have needed to lose an additional eleven pounds to remain in the competition after this week and, suffice to say, he came up short…again. The main culprit appears to have been a temptation challenge in which Ruben indulged far more than is ever recommended for a contestant clearly in danger of elimination.
Although he dropped far less weight than we expected, Ruben Studdard did come away from the competition nearly forty pounds lighter. And hey, that’s a start! In an exclusive blog reaction for Parade, the contestant shared his plans to carry forward with the weight loss effort, adding, “I’m glad that I had the courage to come to the ranch and show the world that you’re never too far away to turn and go right.” And yes, Ruben’s disappointed in his inability to keep up with the competition on The Biggest Loser, but that won’t stop him from acknowledging all that he did accomplish. “I may not be the Biggest Loser, but I am a champion!”
