Ex-Subway Star Jared Fogle Will Not Be Appearing in ‘Sharknado 3’
Jared Fogle — the man made famous by eating nothing but Subway sandwiches and losing 235 pounds — has not only been suspended in his relationship with Subway, but has now lost his cameo in the third installment of the Sharkando TV movie series, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No.
Syfy, producer of the Sharknado movies, said told The Hollywood Reporter that Fogle’s cameo was cut due to the ongoing child pornography investigation that the spokesman is involved in. He had a cameo in the previous Sharknado film, Sharknado 2: The Second One.
Fogle’s home was raided by FBI agents on July 7, following the arrest of Russell Taylor, the former executive director of The Jared Foundation, a nonprofit intended to raise awareness of childhood obesity. Fogle’s computer and other electronics were taken from his home to an evidence truck. He became a spokesman for Subway back in 1998 after the chain learned that he had transformed his once-400-pound physique by eating their food.
Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No will debut on Syfy on July 22.
