‘American Idol’ season 2 winner, Ruben Studdard, is set to be on the next season of ‘The Biggest Loser!’

“On both sides of my family, I have a history of diabetes and high blood pressure and things of that nature,” Studdard said on “Today” at the time. “I just wanted to basically combat those issues at an early age. They’ve never been an issue for me, but I wanted to do it while I was still young and felt like working out and looking great.”

Season 15 of the show will kick off on NBC October 8th. Good luck to Ruben!
