We've all been feeling really sorry for Rob Kardashian because of his weight gain. Rob has hardly been seen out in public since he packed on the pounds, and he left sister Kim's wedding early because supposedly he didn't want his picture taken. He's been fighting depression, probably tied into his weight gain. So is now the time to go back on TV?! Momma Kris Jenner thinks so. But of course she does.
According to HollywoodLife, Kris has been pushing to get Rob a spot on the next season of The Biggest Loser. A source says:
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.
I have to admit, long ago I thought up this idea myself! I thought, "Self, maybe Rob is gaining all of this weight on purpose. Maybe this is a career move. After all, how many people are interested in his sock line?"
But people just loooooove to watch people lose weight. And Rob was an audience favorite on Dancing with the Stars. No doubt people would be rooting for him on TBL.
Something tells me it could totally recharge his career. For awhile. Until he gets fat again. And then people will be all like, "I can't belieeeeve he gained all that weight back! What is wrong with him? I'm totally returning these socks."
Anyway, maybe losing weight for a TV contest isn't the best idea -- but this is the Kardashians we're talking about. If it doesn't happen in front of a camera, then it didn't happen.
The only problem is I don't think Rob is quite big enough for TBL yet. Just the excuse he needs to quit that diet.
Would you like to see him on TBL?
