29. Jordin Sparks
An American Idol beauty that has gone the slimmer route, Jordin Sparks went from a beautiful woman to down right gorgeous. She lost 50 pounds over 18 months by eating better and exercising more. “I never felt like I was suffering by eating less and exercising more,” she said. “the key was finding exercises I enjoyed”. However, she wasn’t the biggest weight loss surprise for American Idol alumni. That goes to someone else on the list…
28. Kelly Osbourne
Her brother isn’t the only one making a fantastic transformation. She came to stardom on her family’s reality show as well but has since reinvented herself with weight loss that was gained through hard work and diet. However, there is one more Osbourne with a bigger weight loss on the list.
27. Ethan Suplee
Known for movies like Butterfly Effect, Fanboys, American History X, and TV Shows Boy Meets World and My Name Is Earl, Ethan was always the big guy in the movies. However, over the past 12 years he’s quietly, and slowly, working down his weight to a grand total of 200 pounds. Why the slow loss? Because he’s gone without surgery and opted for hard work and eating right.
26. Roseanne Barr
Gastric Bypass Surgery in 1998. She was over 350 pounds at one point but after surgery she lost a dramatic amount of weight. She gained some back but started “moving more and eating less” according to the star and is the reason behind her current success with weight loss. She’s not the biggest weight loss success story of the TV Show Roseanne however. That person is at the top of our list.
25. Melissa Joan Hart
After gaining weight during her pregnancy, she dropped 60 pounds after gaining 40 with her 3rd child. She works out with her husband 3 times a week and does cardio 2 times a week alone. That, with eating well and with Nutrisystem, has brought Melissa Joan Hart back to being one bewitching beauty.
24. Fantasia Barrino
The American Idol star hit it big with the show and then immediately, hit it big. She gained a lot of weight up to the point people were not sure if she was gaining weight or pregnant (she wasn’t). She got things back under control with the supervision of a doctor, a better diet, and exercise and is looking fantastic now!
As amazing of a transformation as this is, she’s still not our biggest American Idol alumni loser. That’s still to come.
23. Al Roker

She did her best to deal with her depression and in doing so, has lost a lot of weight. She looks gorgeous! As always. As great as her transformation is, she’s still not the biggest loser when it comes to singers. That honor goes to our #7 person…

Easily the biggest transformation of our singers on the list.

What does he attribute his dramatic weight loss to?. On top of cutting the alcohol out of his diet “I’m eating better, taking better care of myself. When I was doing [The Drew Carey Show], I was eating a lot of garbage, I was drinking a lot, so I had a lot of mood swings. I had diabetes.”
