Jason Kaplan flaunts the skintight clothes he branded after starring in a weight loss ad
Jason Kaplan has lost 88 pounds over the past two years, but despite the dramatic weight loss, the increasingly svelte Stern Show employee has refrained from investing in a new wardrobe – until now .
Howard and co-host Robin Quivers marveled Monday morning as Jason jumped in front of the camera in a fashionable, form-fitting outfit. He told them Nutrisystem – the weight loss company he used losing weight – had just hired her to star in a commercial and upgrading her wardrobe was one of the perks. “It’s from filming. It’s a slim fit shirt,” he told Howard. “I have skinny jeans now. Everything about my clothes is thin and skinny.
Ralph Cirella called and congratulated Jason on his weight loss journey, but he also wondered if Jason overcorrected with his new wardrobe and kept things too tight. “You don’t want to start wearing tight clothes, Jason – you’re an old man,” he said.
“He thinks he’s John Stamos now,” Howard said of Jason with a laugh.
Jason assured them, however, that professionals helped him choose the new threads. “It was like a real wardrobe fitting,” he said. “There were four women running around putting me in different outfits [and] retouching… It was crazy.
Jason went on to say that filming the commercial didn’t require memorizing a big script, it mostly involved talking to the director about the impact of losing weight on his life. “I said how miserable it was being fat and people laughing at me and stuff,” Jason said, later adding, “I did [a shot] where I brandished a pair of my old pants, and it was shocking.
“I haven’t done it for almost two years,” Jason continued. “And it’s life changing.”
