This will mark Obama's second appearance on Biggest Loser. She first appeared on the show in April 2012, when she took part in a workout at the White House as part of her Let's Move anti-obesity campaign. (Watch the video below.)

The 15th season of Biggest Loser debuts at 8 p.m. Tuesday. Among the contestants will be American Idol winner Ruben Studdard, with trainers Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels and Dolvett Quince all returning.

Broadcasting & Cable was the first to report the news of Obama's return to the show.
