Jared’s journey from regular fat guy to fast food spokesperson to prison inmate
1998: Jared, a student at Indiana University, weighed 425 pounds. He started his "Subway diet," which consisted of two Subway sandwiches a day minus cheese and mayo, and instituted a daily walking regimen.
1999: Fogle lost 245 pounds, and his story was picked up by his college newspaper
and Men's Health magazine.
2000: Subway signed Fogle to tell the story of his Subway-aided weight loss in a series of regional TV ads, before taking the campaign national and turning Fogle into a celebrity.
2002: South Park lampooned Fogle in an episode called "Jared Has Aides" (pun intended). Fogle told The Washington Post it was "very flattering."
2006: WWE wrestler John Cena
appeared in a Subway ad with Fogle, the beginning of a number of Subway/Fogle/WWE interactions over the next half-decade.
2008: A Subway campaign called Tour de Pants celebrated Fogle's decade of keeping off the weight with a ten-city tour to fight childhood obesity, after which Jared retired his old size-60 pants.
2014: Subway ran a tie-in marketing campaign for "Muppets Most Wanted," and Jared shared the screen with Miss Piggy and Kermit in a retroactively baggage-filled TV ad.
2014: Fogle made a cameo appearance in the TV movie "Sharknado 2: The Second One." He returned for "Sharknado 3" the following year but his appearance was cut when charges were filed against him.
