Will Rob Kardashian be the new spokesperson for the Subway sandwich franchise? Subway may have found a new candidate for their spokesperson opening that Jared Fogle had to vacate the position after he was arrested for child porn. Hollywood Life, Jan. 3, 2016, reports that subway wants to be a part of Rob’s weight loss journey.
Recently, Rob Kardashian’s family rushed him to the hospital because he was not feeling good. Even his mother Kris Jenner rushed home from her vacation with Corey Gamble in St. Barts when she heard the news that Rob was admitted in the hospital. After a series of tests, the doctors discovered that he had Type 2 Diabetes. If he had not gone to the hospital when he did, he would have gone into a diabetic coma.
Rob Kardashian is only 28, but his weight has gotten the better of him for a number of years. His family members have tried to encourage him to lose weight, but Rob did not listen and he continued to remain on his poor eating habits and lifestyle.
An insider told Hollywood Life, “We all know the days of Jared are forever gone and that leaves a very big hole in a pitchman with the Subway brand. Subway has been having discussions and would like to see if working with Rob would be a fit to not only help get him healthy but possibly have him become the next weight loss success story and pitchman for Subway. Rob would obviously have to lose the weight and do the work but Subway is interested in being a part of his success. It is something that could benefit both of them in the long run.”
However, Rob has stayed out of the spotlight for a number of years and may not be easy to convince him to go public with his weight loss journey. His family continues to encourage him to go on TV and take part in “The Biggest Loser,” or get help from Oprah Winfrey because she is connected with Weight Watchers. They would even like him to come back to their reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” so their fans can watch and encourage his progress. It will hold him more accountable to change his life and lose the weight and perhaps even reverse diabetes.
MSM reports that Rob remains distant from his family and friends after his health scare crisis. A source told them that Kardashian “acts like he wants nothing to do with the world. He doesn’t respond to texts from people that are genuinely concerned and checking up on him.”
