If you're a reality TV fan, you may need to reset your TiVo after meeting Oprah's guests—men, women and kids who've won over millions with their honesty and humor.
In November 2008, Ruby Gettinger helped put the Style Network on the map when her original series, Ruby, had the biggest debut in the network's history. "It seems America has fallen in love with Ruby," Oprah says.

For 10 to 12 hours a day, cameras follow Ruby as she deals with the daily struggles of losing weight. At her heaviest, this Savannah, Georgia, native weighed more than 700 pounds. After dropping almost 230 pounds, she landed her own show and set out on an odyssey to lose 300 more. "I'm going to die if I don't change this," Ruby says. "That's pretty scary."

Ruby's open, honest approach to weight loss attracts millions of viewers. "I just want to tell the truth because it's the biggest struggle," she says. "There's so many people that suffer from the same thing."

In eight months of filming, Ruby lost 112 pounds from her nearly 500-pound frame...but she's not stopping there! "This is about me transforming," she says. "It's going to be a huge transformation."
