It's one of America's most popular weight loss shows, and next week NBC's 'The Biggest Loser' will give another 15 contestants the chance to regain their health and their lives while dropping dozens and dozens of pounds. One of those contestants is former 'American Idol' winner Ruben Studdard. At 462 pounds, he is this season's heaviest contestant.

"I didn't go into the show thinking about having a target on my back [because I'm a celebrity]," said Studdard in a telephone interview. "Once I found out how much I weighed at the ranch, I wanted to change that. That was my only concern."

Fallen Idol'?

It's pretty safe to assume that every single person who reads this has heard of 'American Idol.' The Fox singing competition has been one of the most popular programs on television for the entirety of its 11-season run. It spent seven straight years from 2005 to 2011 atop the Nielsen rankings, the first show in history to achieve that feat.

That epic run may be coming to an end.

New Idol Judges 

I don't watch much Reality TV, and when I do, it is usually something on the cable networks. Im more of a 'Dirty Jobs' or 'Storage Wars' guy than an 'Idol' or 'DWTS' guy. This doesn't mean that I don't have opinions about those shows, however.

The buzz right now is about who the next 'American Idol' judges will be. Some are saying Charlie Sheen, some are saying Adam Lambert. The answer is plain as day. 

Look, as I said, I don't watch it, but I can tell that the show has lost its edge since Simon left. They need to fill the void with someone as abrasive and snotty as he was. Steven Tyler and J-Lo can't fill those shoes. You not only need someone who will put these budding starlets in their place, but someone who has years of experience doing so.

Another fallen 'Idol'

We've long had a bit of a fast and loose attitude in this space with regards to what actually constitutes 'celebrity.' We have to, if only so we can be sure to include the seemingly never-ending waves of reality stars who appear to be anxiously awaiting their chance to be complete a-holes.

Which brings us to Jermaine Jones.

Jermaine was a contestant on 'American Idol' you know, that show that people still inexplicably watch for some reason. He had spent a significant part of his time on the show throwing out sob story after sob story, including one about his absentee dad who suddenly reappeared when his son was on the verge of fame.
