"American Idol" Season 2 winner Ruben Studdard is looking for another reality TV win as a contestant on the 15th season of "The Biggest Loser," but it's not the potential $250,000 grand prize that would mean the most to him. "This season of 'The Biggest Loser' is going to be full of twist and turns that you've never seen on the show," Studdard, who enters the "BL" competition as the season's heaviest competitor at 462 pounds, tells Yahoo TV. "Most of all, you will see all of us change our lives for the better."

The Grammy-nominated singer, who celebrated his 35th birthday in September, shared his pop culture obsessions with us, including the clothes he just can't live without, the primetime diva he's crushin' on, and his favorite movie snack (don't worry, Ruben … we won't tell Jillian!).
