Which American Idol 2013 Contestant Lost 40 Pounds in a Month? (PHOTOS)
Now that the Top 10 contestants have been selected for Season 12, it’s time for the guys and the girls to get their official American Idol makeovers! One contender, however, has already gone through a huge transformation of his own — by losing a whopping 40 pounds over the course of the last month!
"I knew I had to lose it,” he tells People of his dramatic weight loss. “I never gave up on it. I would work out in the past and I always gave up because I never saw results. But when I started seeing results [this time], I was like, ‘You have you keep going, keep going!’”
The contestant cites Jennifer Hudson as the former Idol star he relates to most, saying, “She didn't even win this show, but she took the platform that she was given and she made something out of nothing.” Hudson, herself, has lost a staggering 80 pounds since appearing on the show in 2004.
