Ruben Studdard Eliminated From Biggest Loser — for the Second Time!
It's time to say goodbye to Ruben Studdard on The Biggest Loser— again.
The former American Idol winner was eliminated from the December 3 episode of the weight-loss competition show. He was the contestant who lost the least amount of weight this week, as he had only dropped two pounds.
Ruben felt that he had worked hard with trainer Dolvett Quince to lose those pounds. "Those pounds were hard fought," Ruben says. "I earned every one of them."
Ruben had actually been eliminated once already. Three weeks ago, he was given the boot, but then he was given another chance to compete. Sadly, he is gone once again.
"America, the next time you see me, I'll still be the Velvet Teddy Bear, but without the stuffing," Ruben said.
Ruben's final weight is 394 pounds, which is down from his original weight of 462 pounds. All in all, we're definitely impressed by the progress Ruben has made, even if it didn't quite make sense for him to get to come back to the show in the first place.
Do you think Ruben deserved to go home tonight? Or did you think he should have stayed off the show after the first time? And who do you think will win now?
