It’s a reality show crossover! An Idol alum — a victor to be exact — has agreed to compete in the NBC mega-hit The Biggest Loser. So which fomer singing sentation is ready to loose some serious L-B’s? Is it Kelly Clarkson? Carrie Underwood? Candice Glover?

Well the answer is actually… D) None of the above! American Idol’s Season 2 winner Ruben Studdard is ready to step back into the spotlight — but this time there will be a lot more sweating involved.

Studdard tells People, “I’ve never had an issue with my weight, [but] my family has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart-related issues — things I didn’t have to deal with yet because I’m young. But I don’t want to be worried at 40, and if I don’t fix things now, I will be.” The 2003 Idol victor will be the first famous contestant to compete on the NBC reality show with the completion returns later this fall.
