Ruben Studdard was released from the hospital; college student looks just like Clay.

Ruben Studdard was released from the hospital; college student looks just like Clay.
Ruben Studdard left a hospital just in time to stuff his face with Thanksgiving food. The American Idol 2 winner’s uncle told Access Hollywood that Ruben was “glad to eat,” and but is still “trying to recupterate [sic] and is looking forward to going back to work.” Meanwhile, University of Utah student Dave Dunn has to live with a curse: He looks exactly like Clay Aiken. This means that when he goes into public, groups of shrieking Clay fans run to him, latch on to his neck, and gnaw on him. Well, sort of. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that he’s frequently approached because of his uncanny similarity to the singer, which he shamelessly exploits. He went to Clay’s concert where “concertgoers lined up by the dozens to have their picture taken with him.” He jokes, “I have my pick among the 14-year-old girls.”
