Ruben Studdard went home (again) this week on NBC’s The Biggest Loser, but he did much more for the network than lose over 100 pounds. E Online reported on Dec. 5, 2013, that he boosted their ratings and opened the possibility for other celebrities to be on the show.

Although he is a celebrity, according to Allison Sweeney, he fit in so well, and was truly dedicated to being there, and he never distanced himself away from the other contestants like you'd think a celebrity might. One of the reasons a celebrity has not been on the show until this season with Ruben, the show has a grueling schedule that most celebrities have not been able to work around. Ruben always had the attitude that he will do whatever he needs to better his life. He was there 100% in to lose weight and become a better person.

According to Allison, the thing about The Biggest Loser is the person has to WANT to be there, or the program will not work at all. Ruben had a great attitude right until the moment he was eliminated. Many fans are hoping he will be back on another season; however, it would be better to see him to it on his own. He has the possibility of losing a ton of weight before the final weigh in.

Allison had a few tips to share to help you battle the holiday weight gain.

It's about being realistic. Look at the small things you can do that make a very big difference, but still are very manageable. Instead of only eating rice cakes for six weeks or whatever, why don't you have a look at your kitchen and start by adding things that are good for you. Add a bowl of blueberries to your countertop, and see if you don't eat those first, just have them ready to snack, and see if that doesn't satisfy the craving. Your first line of defense is giving yourself healthy options.
