Many people have wondered what has become of the American Idol winners who won the nation’s heart in the earlier seasons. Especially Ruben Studdard.

On Tuesday night’s episode of The Biggest Loser, the now 35-year old Ruben Studdard shockingly revealed that he had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

“I am afraid,” Studdard told his coach Dolvette Quince and Dr. Huizenga on the show. “I have seen a lot of lives cut short because of health issues. I’ve worked since I was 11-years-old to be a professional singer. That’s all I ever wanted to do.”
