Kyle & Jackie O's 'Fat Challenge'

Kyle & Jackie O's 'Fat Challenge'

Posted 1 June 2009   by Karen         Permalink | 24 Comments

Tags: Kyle and Jackie O, Jackie O, 2DayFM, pigs, factory farms, vegetarian, donate

If you're a 2DayFM listener you're probably aware by now of Kyle's "fat challenge". But if you're not, the self-admittedly rotund co-host of the Kyle and Jackie O show has accused the ever-gorgeous Jackie of being fat! (Yes, it's a topsy turvy world we live in).

It seems that Kyle is so concerned about Jackie's health and belt size that he's issued his vegetarian co-host a challenge: lose 4 Kg and he'll donate $5,000 to her favourite charity: Animals Australia! And if she fails...? Kyle says he'll give the $5,000 to a pig factory farm -- Jackie's worst nightmare!

Now, I don't know where this mic-slinging diva will even find 4 Kg to lose... but if anyone can do it for the pigs, I'm willing to bet that Jackie O can.

The outspoken radio personality and former Big Brother host has already shown her commitment to helping animals by not eating them. She also posted information on her website to inform listeners about the miserable lives of animals trapped in factory farms in Australia. Go Jackie!

Who do you think will win the fat challenge? You can have your say and pass on your encouragement to Jackie on the 2day fm website. :-)

Go Jackie, go! She doesn't need to lose the weight at all though. Kyle is an idiot. I really hope she can do it!

she's not even fat. this is one of the sickest challanges i've ever heard. Kyle the idiot could easily donate $5000 out of his own pocket if he even cared about anyone but himself, surely he's not dirt poor. Instead he needs a stupid challange like this so he can keep morons listening to their radio show, even though i find it hard to believe this could even be considered entertainment. Also highly ironic that he said this when he is a fat ass. rolleyes

lol

i don't know if she can.... unless she goes into the negatives. but good generally defeats evil... so i'll bet that Jackie somehow does it. Maybe she water-loaded before she weighed herself? i hope so anyway

pretty funny challenge though - i get their podcasts.

i remember when they went to LA and drove around in a black SUV.. Jackie pretended to be Britney Spears while Kyle was the bodyguard... with a REALLY bad american accent. The paparazzi followed them around and even the police gave them an escort! when the paps learnt that it was a joke they were so ANGRY! kyle and jacki had to run away... it was so funny lol

Ugh, this is such a revolting challenge - it manages to simultaneously trivialise animal cruelty and send out a distorted message about body image (I mean Jackie O is really slender as it is - that is NOT fat!).  I am not a big fan of these two at all, but hopefully Jackie succeeds nonetheless.

Both thoroughly annoying, triple j for all your vegan breakfast needs! Also go and look up the hilarious threats of violence Kyle made against jay and the doctor/frenzal rhomb during some feud they had years ago.

Also, basically agree with Kat.

That was so funny, I forgot about that!

I noticed the other day that Jackie O is the spokesmodel on one of those 'Brand Power' type ads advertising some breakfast (dairy) milk drink.  Not that I am  wishing to knock her for being vegetarian rather than vegan (hey, any boycott of animal products is great!) but it seems strange to me to be publicly sticking up for piggies but also essentially publicly endorsing an industry that allows cruelty to cows.

I second Kat and Nathanael's comments, I don't think she's the best spokesperson to have for animals.

Listen to JJJ, the breakfast show with TWO vegans!

When we met with Jackie a few months ago, she had just received our bobby calf action alert. She expressed her horror to us at the cruelty of the dairy industry - like most of us at some time, she simply did not know.

She was also deeply upset because she had just finished the commercial for the yoghurt product. Unfortunately, despite her disgust at the cruelty shown by the dairy industry she was not able to ask for the commercials to be pulled as she was bound by contract. sad

We have no doubt that Jackie will never promote dairy again.

Animals Australia (and the animals) are very fortunate to have such a high profile and supportive celebrity as Jackie speaking up for them. Jackie is able to reach a million listeners every week with a message of kindness to animals. Fortunately, now that she is aware of the problems with the dairy industry this is yet another issue she can highlight to her listeners. clap

Wow, bit of an awkward situation there!  I'm glad to hear that she is now aware of the issue, and hopefully her listeners become similarly aware and concerned.

I've always thought it's strange jackieo is not vegan. Now that she has been informed of the horrors in the milk industry, has there been any word on the consideration of a vegan lifestyle?

I just read Unleashed's comment re: contacting Jackie about endorsing dairy. I'm so glad you let her know as I thought she'd been an odd choice for the face of Animals Australia. But seeing as she didn't know and wishes she hadn't endorsed the products then I guess I can forgive you guys for choosing her  wink

As for the fat challenge: at first I was disgusted because, like Kat, I thought it mocked animal cruelty and sent out the wrong message about body image. But now when I think about at least it's getting some info out there about factory farming pigs. Maybe some listeners will look up the issue and boycott pork products, or go veg!

So I know sometimes aren't black and white like they are the paper. But personally I want nothing to do with any of these jerks.

Just signed a petition to sack Kyle Sandilands. What a loser. After his most recent escapade into the world of rape victims I think he needs a serious wake up call about what the community will and will not tolerate. Time to call an end to his sick games.

Jackie O's involvement at all in such a challenge does trivialise animal cruelty as previously mentioned - I can't believe only one comment mentions this!
And as for the distorted message about body image!
Kat seems like the only switched-on person on this thread.

I would hope if Kyle has to donate $5000 to a pig farm it will help there living conditions
