Once dubbed "The King of R&B," Bobby Brown has been in the spotlight for more than 30 years. As the bad boy of the popular 80's band, "New Edition," Brown quickly rose to stardom, dancing his way into the hearts of teen girls.

Now 40-years-old and sporting extra pounds, Bobby plans to get back in fighting shape. He's enlisted in Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp to reclaim his six-pack abs and to help reboot his music career.
