Could Rob Kardashian be the next ‘Subway Guy’? After a scary hospitalization for diabetes, getting healthy has become extremely important for Rob — and apparently Subway wants to be part of his weight loss journey! Get the EXCLUSIVE details here!
Weight has been a struggle for Rob Kardashian, 28, in recent years, but he could be on his way to dropping some major pounds with the help of Subway sandwiches! The company has been on the hunt for a new spokesperson, and now that Rob’s doctors are begging him to lose weight since he was rushed to the hospital on Dec. 29, he could be the perfect person to partner with. A source hinted that a deal may be in the works!
“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,” an insider revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “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.”
Although Rob’s siblings have been incredibly supportive of him working toward a healthier lifestyle, it became clear that he might need more than family motivation just after the holidays. Rob got quite the wake-up call when he was hospitalized four days after Christmas, and tests revealed that he has developed adult onset diabetes. Between pressure from doctors and worry from his family, Rob realized it’s time for a change. A deal with Subway could just be the extra help he needs!
Plus, another source told us that Kris Jenner wants her son’s weight loss journey to be documented on TV. Rob hasn’t been seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians much because of his depression and health struggles, so it certainly wasn’t going to be easy to get him on TV for such a personal challenge. But considering Jared Fogle proved that Subway was an amazing way to lose weight and shared it with the world, maybe this is a great opportunity to please both his doctors and his momager!
Whether Rob goes for the Subway deal or not, we hope to see Rob find inspiration to lose weight in whatever way he is most comfortable. While nothing has officially been determined yet, HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Subway and Rob’s rep for comment.
