"The Biggest Loser" contestants are sticking together!

Ruben Studdard joined "Extra’s" Maria Menounos at Universal Studios Hollywood on Wednesday to talk about the show’s controversial finale.

Some have criticized the series for allowing the show's new winner, 24-year-old Rachel Frederickson, to drop from 260 to 105 pounds, going from a size 20 to a size 0/2.

The singer, who lost 119 pounds on "The Biggest Loser," weighed in on Rachel's 155-pound loss, saying, "The one thing I will say about my friend Rachel Frederickson is that she is a hard worker... I’ve never seen anyone work harder to change their life than Rachel."

The "American Idol" winner also commented on Clay Aiken's announcement that he's running for Congress in North Carolina.

"I am really, really proud of my friend... if and when he wins that race, he will be the best candidate for them, he's one of the smartest most passionate people I know," he said.
