MTV Cribs

ruben Hey "MTV Cribs" viewers, I'm Ruben Studdard... now come on into my crib!

This house is something I've picked up since winning on "American Idol" and landing a lucrative record contract. It's is the biggest purchase I've ever made outside of a Krispy Kreme.

By the way, you're the first person in some time to ring my doorbell not wearing a Domino's Pizza uniform.

The house is about 4,000 square feet, which isn't that big when you consider that I'm 3,500 square feet myself. It has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 17 kitchens, all with faucets that have hot and cold running gravy.

rubenCome on, follow me and let's get started. The first place I want to show you is my sunken living room. It wasn't actually sunken until the first day I walked through it. Over there is my coffee cake table. No, I didn't mean coffee table... it's made out of real coffee cake. I have to replace it daily.

This is where I watch my favorite TV show. No, not "American Idol"... "Emeril!" My entertainment center has everything I need when I watch TV... a VCR, a DVD, and KFC.

As you can see, I don't have any plants in the house. I just don't like green things, they remind me too much of salad.

rubenNow, follow me down the hallway. This door with all the cobwebs on it is the exercise room, don't laugh... it came with the house. Obviously, I don't do too much exercise. In fact, I refuse to do any "crunches"... unless they have Nestle's written on it. Let's move on.

Here's my master bedroom. Naturally, it's a king-sized bed. I had a water bed, but I caused a tidal wave in the neighborhood the first night I laid on it. Yeah, It's just me in here right now. There's no special lady in my life right now... unless you count Sara Lee.

rubenYou can see out to my backyard where I have a pool with a waterfall and a Jacuzzi. I don't use the pool that much because it takes too long to fill it up again after I get in. I really enjoy the Jacuzzi... mainly because I usually fill it with chocolate-sundae sauce. Let's go out to the garage.

My garage holds all my rides. There's my Cadillac Escalade, and next to that is my Mercedes 500SL... and last but not least... my Good Humor truck. I also have a forklift over there, but that's only used when I order out Chinese.

Well, unfortunately, this is gonna have to be the end of the tour because I've got to run down to the studio for the taping of my new reality-dating show. It's called "Joe Million Pounds." 'Bye and thanks for coming!

rubenHey camera dude, you gonna finish that Milky Way?
