With scrutiny over his weight and behavior in general reaching an all-time high, Rob Kardashian has been shying away from the media lately, so why is he about to share his struggle with the whole world?
A source close to the Kardashian family reveals that Kris Jenner is trying to turn Rob’s weight gain into ratings gold with a new TV deal for her son.
Kris is reportedly trying to get Rob a spot on the upcoming season of The Biggest Loser , because nothing sounds more fun for someone dealing with self-esteem issues than jumping on a scale in front of millions of viewers.
An insider tells HollywoodLife of the potential deal, “With the biggest loser being on NBC, they share a lot of the same people who make decisions with E!, so Kris has been in meetings to see if it would work to have Rob on season 16 this fall.”
Despite the push for Rob to sweat and diet off the weight in front of a huge audience, it seems he’s not exactly on board with the idea.
As he’s admitted in the past, he has little interest in reality TV in general, and would rather fans thought of him as a sock mogul than a celebrity.
Do you think Rob should join the Biggest Loser cast? Is it insensitive of Kris to suggest it?
