'American Idol's' Ruben Studdard joins 'Biggest Loser' cast

"American Idol" winner Ruben Studdard is joining the cast of "The Biggest Loser," becoming the first celebrity to compete on NBC's weight-loss reality show.

The balladeer nicknamed "The Velvet Teddy Bear" was crowned the winner of "American Idol" Season 2 in 2003, edging out Clay Aiken in one of the tightest votes in that show's history. Studdard used the win as a platform to launch a singing-and-performing career, and also earned a Grammy nomination.
