Our next celebrity chub on the countdown is Kevin James. Kevin had a disastrous 2009 on our reader’s poll, but made huge gains this year. Perhaps Chubarama readers just really, really hated Paul Blart: Mall Cop? Perhaps readers just really, really liked Grown Ups? Hard to tell, but James is looking great lately after losing a few pounds and we’ll see him this summer in Zookeeper. Talk about Oscar bait!
This is why Chubarama has the best readers. How long has King of Queens been off the air? This is like…Chubspotting: Archeology style.
We’ll let the submitter do the explaining.
From King of Queens seasons 1, episode 22. Carrie and Doug had planned on having sex in the kitchen while Carrie’s father was away but Doug ate too much pizza and was too full. You can see in the first frame how his crotch looks normal but then after Carrie lies down on him and gets up that he’s got a bulge going…

Oh, Marko! Continuing with our Chub of the Year celebrities who received multiple votes (but not enough to get them into the top spots) we have Washington politico Marko Liias. Marko is one of the most popular politicians we’ve ever covered, and for being new to the scene and not exactly someone with a ton of name recognition, he’s made a very impressive showing this year.
This is the very first time actor Richard Riehle has ever appeared on Chubarama. Kinda hard to believe, right? He was popular enough with readers to garner a handful of votes, which is quite good considering we’ve never had a post devoted to him. Expect one early in 2010.
Why did perennial favorite Seth Rogen only get a handful of votes this year? Probably because he’s not a chub anymore! As we’ve discussed before Seth is currently slimmer while filming his role in the upcoming Green Hornet, but we’ll see if he keeps off the pounds in the future.
Do you recognize who that is there in the back? Why, it’s Andrew Zimmern of the Travel Channel. Andrew was mentioned by quite a few readers for Chub of the Year 2009, and for good reason – the guy takes his shirt off in every other episode of Bizarre World. Yummy stuff!
Lastly, Kevin James took the biggest hit this year. After placing 2nd in the 2008 poll, Kevin couldn’t even bust into the top 10 in 2009. We knew Paul Blart: Mall Cop was bad, but was it that bad?
We still have the top two spots to reveal, which will happen in the morning hours Monday, Eastern Standard time. Sweet dreams until then!
The way he moves on the Segway is very suggestive! More Chu-BOO-rama 2009 is on the way.
I think we’re getting somewhere with the guy who may or may not be Kevin James. A handful of folks have mentioned he looks an awful lot like Brent Sexton:
and I think they may be onto something.
So, these photos are interesting. It looks like Kevin James is losing weight, perhaps rapidly. At first I didn’t even believe these were actually of Kevin James, his face looks so different. Excercise and diet? Bypass? Really not him? At any rate he’s still looking good, and the belly shots are nice. Let’s hope Kevin is getting healthy so he’ll be around for many years and laughs to come.
Lots more pics after the jump.
Still hoping for that Oscar nomination fingers crossed guys! [BestWeekEver]
