Jared Fogle Subway Net Worth
Jared Fogle Net Worth: Jared Fogle is an American spokesperson and motivational speaker who has a net worth of $12 million. Jared is best known for being the main Subway spokesperson, and for his work as a motivational speaker. Jared Fogle was born on December 1, 1977, in Indianapolis, Indiana. He rose to fame with his significant weight loss story. Jared lost 245 pounds in a single year which he attributed to his self-designed "Subway diet". This led to his role as a major spokesperson for the company. In 1998, he stood 6′ 2" and weighed 425 pounds as a twenty-year-old junior at Indiana University. At the time he was consuming around 10,000 calories per day, the amount of calories recommended for five people. His story started when he saw an advertisement about how Subway subs contained 6 grams of fat or less. He picked up a nutritional brochure to develop his own diet. By following his own regime and walking to class rather than taking the bus, he lost incredible 245 pounds, and continued to lose weight after that first year. Thanks to a friend of his, who was an editor of the Indiana Daily Student, Fogle's weight-loss story was unveiled. Eventually, Subway's national ad agency read about Jared's successful diet and offered to have him lead their national campaign in early 2000. He worked as a major spokesperson for the company for over 15 years until he was arrested by the FBI for possessing and distributing child pornography, and the sexual abuse of a minor. Prior to his arrest, he was also part of the Jared & Friends School Tour, sponsored by the American Heart Association. Jared has been a guest on numerous TV shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show and Larry King Live. He is also an author and was working as motivational speaker traveling the country about 200 days a year. In July 2015, Jared's home was raided as part of an FBI investigation into child pornography. The raid was connected to a former employee of Jared's charity who had been arrested. Jared was later charged with possessing and distributing child pornography and traveling across state lines to have sex with minors. Subway severed ties with Jared after the FBI raid and his arrest, and the company and Jared announced that they had mutually agreed to sever their relationship. On August 19, 2015 Jared Fogle plead guilty to possession of child pornography. He agreed to pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 victims, and is now likely going to serve as many as 5 years in prison.
