Jared Fogle, whose Indiana home was raided in July 2015 by the FBI as part of a child pornography investigation, turned a dramatic weight loss into millions of dollars in dough by becoming Subway’s top pitchman.

Fogle has admitted to possession of child pornography and to traveling to New York City to pay to have sex with teen girls who were being exploited in prostitution. Read more about Fogle’s case here.

Fogle, 37, has an estimated net worth of $15 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth.com.

Federal prosecutors said his wealth and ability to travel for work helped him in his exploitation of child prostitutes. Fogle will be required to pay $100,000 to each of the 14 victims in his case, according to prosecutors.

Fogle was sentenced to 15 years and 6 months in prison on November 19, 2015. Read more about his sentence here.

Fogle weighed 425 pounds as a 22-year-old student at Indiana University in 1998. By 1999, thanks to a diet based around Subway’s food and an exercise regimen, Fogle was down to 180 pounds. His story gained national attention, and he became Subway’s spokesman in 2000.

Fogle has made hundreds of commercials for Subway since he became the company’s top spokesman in 2000. He has also traveled around the country making appearances for the sandwich shop chain.

He told QSR Magazine that he wouldn’t disclose his salary, but “they don’t pay me all in subs.”

He told the New York Daily News, “I owe a lot to Subway. They’ve given me an amazing life in multiple ways,” but wouldn’t disclose their deal.

Fogle was a student at Indiana University when he began working for Subway, and his role as spokesman has been his only adult job.

In addition to his work for Subway, Fogle travels around the country as a motivational speaker. He earns between $5,000 to $10,000 per appearance, USA Today reported.

Fogle gives four different speeches titled: “The New You,” “The Saga of the Subway Guy,” “Having the Will to Stand On My Own Two Feet, Again” and “Moderation & the Smart Choices We Make,” according to the American Program Bureau website, which took down Fogle’s page Tuesday morning after news of the FBI raid on his home.

According to the foundation’s website, “As a leader in the fight to help children learn life-long healthy diet and exercise habits, the Jared Foundation provides programs for children ages 6 to 14 years and support tools for parents, educators, and health care professionals to encourage and sustain lifestyle changes.”

Fogle says on the website, “Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic. I believe there is a solution; educating kids about the importance of proper nutrition and physical activity. I am proud to have my name on this foundation. Its vision and mine is to eliminate childhood obesity.”

He can’t be worth $15 million and only live in a $576K home. Even for Indiana, that makes no sense.

Warren Buffet lives in a $500,000 home. Does that not make sense to you? Just cause you make it doesn’t mean you have to spend it!!

The $15 million isn’t cash, it includes the $576K home & everything else he owns, minus what he owes.
