Ruben Studdard Joins The Biggest Loser!

rubenThe world has always known American Idol’s Ruben Studdard as being a big man, with an even bigger voice, but Ruben is ready to change all that. He has officially decided to let the world watch him attempt to get the weight off and compete on NBC’s The Biggest Loser!

After having minimal success in 2006 with weight loss, in which he quit his workout and diet regime after losing just twelve pounds, he has decided to try again.

The first time Ruben tried to lose weight but decided the weight-loss plan was not for him, he made the decision to go vegetarian, which helped him lose seventy pounds.  Now even more motivated than ever with an audience watching, Studdard is going to try once again.  In October 2006, Studdard said,

“On both sides of my family, I have a family history of diabetes and high blood pressure and things of that nature. 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.”

Whatever the new reason is that made Ruben want to join The Biggest Loser, we will cheer him on starting October 8th on NBC!

Maria Menounos Shows Off Her Toned Abs


Recently, the beautiful “Extra!” host Maria Menounos took to the beach in Greece celebrating her 35th birthday with family and her boyfriend.

Menounos’ toned abs and a lean figure definitely defines this Greek bikini.

Maria once had to strip down into a two-piece on national television when she lost her Super Bowl bet earlier this year, but she had nothing to worry about because it seems this equity stays bikini ready all year long!

To get abs like Maria, we suggest some ab exercises like crunches, sit ups, or side leg raises that work out the sides of your abs for definition. Remember; keep your abs tight when doing this exercise!
