Just saw Jared's new commercial about the Teriyaki sub. Looks like he's become their personal spokesperson, for as long as he's skinny anyway. You think he gets a lifetime supply of subs, a paycheck, or maybe even does em for free? Can't be more than $1,500 if it's money, right? What do you think?

He must be paid under industry regulations (SAG maybe?). In the same way that Jeff Bezos (CEO of Amazon.com millionaire) had to paid for the Taco Bell commercials he did.... (he donated the money to charity). I'm guessing it's at least $25,000+

They've based an entire campaign on him and have done a lot of commercials, so i'm sure it's probably quite a bit.

Is this a great country, or what? Not only can a schlump like Jared make a fortune doing commercials for a fast food chain, people like us can gather to ponder how much me makes. God bless the USA.

The guy lost some major weight by sticking to a low fat sub sandwich. You have to give him credit. It takes a lot of will power.

And, to boot the guy gets his own commercials. That is capitalism at its best.

My cynical guess is he's getting very little. Despite the fact that they designed a campaign around the guiy (kinda strange since he's stilted and nervous on camera)- I would guess they approached the guy and signed a low ball contract right off the bat.

I'm guessing, could be wrong, that Subway waved some small money in his face (maybe not even realizing what appeal he would have)- and got him to sign on for the long haul.

I think it's great for the guy though. He didn't go into this looking to get rich- he just did his own thing and someone noticed. After the local media caught on, the national media did, and Subway came knocking to cash in on Jared's little experiment.

In the end, everyone wins (aside from the people I see at Subway who think they can slim down ordering extra cheese and heavy mayo).

I can picture the initial meeting *Dream waves occur here*

--Before Jared enters office--
Exec 1: What do you think we should offer him?
Exec2: He will makes us look great after losing 245lbs with our food.
Exec1: Yeah, but does he have the charisma?
Exec 2:Let's offer him free sandwiches for life and a whack of money.
Exec 1: Sounds good.

--Jared and Agent Jackie Childs enter--
Exec1: Jared, congratulations on your weight loss.
Jared: Thank you
Exec1: We want you to be our spokesperson.
Jared: Cool!
Exec1: We're prepared to offer you free sandwiches for life...
Jared: I'll take it!!!
Jackie: *Shakes Head in defeat...again*

I'm rather tired of looking at him everytime I go to buy a sub. I think The Onion (www.theonion.com) had it right when they placed him on the "People most in need of a good cock-punching" list. But I think South Park did far more damage to his self-esteem then I will ever do, I can now almost die happy.;)

I find Jared less annoying than the other guy, though the repeat factor up here is enough to drive anyone off Subway for life.

Who the hell did they hire to write the scripts for these things anyway?

Guy: When you THINK of Italy, you THINK of things, like cars that THINK they can fly.

WTF is up with that? I know 4 year olds who can build a sentence without repeating the same word 3 times....

Yeah, I have a slightly modified version of that stupid song that must accompany it whenever I am plagued by it.

Does anyone know why they have to play those commercials at EVERY frikin commercial break?
