Here’s a dark and horrifying tale. Jared Fogle once inspired people to get healthy, eat fresh and kick their nasty habits. His own nasty habits were okay by him. Fogle was the spokesperson for Subway for a number of years, until the details of his predilections came to light. So far as I can find out the man is a pedophile. I may be wrong about that assertion, but all the evidence I can find, not to mention his conviction on charges of statutory rape, point in that direction. Before his legal troubles he was estimated to be worth around $15 million. Since the beginning of his trial in 2015, he has spent a fortune on lawyers, pay outs and other fees associated with losing a court case.
The point of this article is not to list out his many crimes, I already did that in a previous article, today I will be looking into the mans finances, and try to figure out how much he might have left from his once substantial fortune. So let’s take a look through his career, see where his money came from, and where it all went.

How Did Jared Fogle From Subway Make His Money & Wealth?
The core of Jared Fogle’s wealth came purely by chance. He was morbidly obese for much of his life. It wasn’t until half way through college that he decided to try and get in shape. the first thing he did was change his eating habits. A lifetime of eating take out food had left him with a compulsion, and so he switched to what he saw as a healthier alternative. Add in some exercise and he soon dropped more than 200 pounds. A friend ran his story in the University paper, and that got back to Subway regional manager in Chicago. They ran a test ad and soon went national with it.
The ad campaign with Subway proved to be a monster success. He was paid very well by the firm, and traveled across the country, promoting the product, and shooting more adverts. He leveraged this fame into appearances on all kinds of shows, talks show, WWE Network and even a few films. The other strut of his wealth was his motivational speaking. He spoke at a number of high profile venues on the topic of weight loss and childhood obesity. All in all until 2015 Jared was doing very well for himself. Then the truth came out.
Turns out Jared had been sending and receiving child pornography, soliciting mothers to let him have his way with their young daughters, and sexually abusing a wide variety of minors up and down the country. His case was brought to court, and it is known that he paid out at least $1.4 million in compensation to his victims, 14 girls in total. Once we add in his legal fees, then I think it is safe to say he’s pretty much broke. Add in the fact that he had to pay his now ex wife $7 million, roughly half of his 2013 net worth, and I think that is the nail in the coffin of Jared Fogle’s wealth.
