FLUFF: How much celebrities are paid to lose weight.

The Australian Women’s Weekly has just released the lucrative salaries of celebrities’ weight loss contracts.

Putting aside the questionable intentions behind paying someone to lose weight for just a moment, here’s what these stars have earned for reaching their reported weight loss goals.

Mel B, 38, earned $225,000 for losing 16 kilos. She also got $40 for every member who signed up to Weight Watchers because of her.

This was in addition to the $1,500 a month for a personal trainer or food preparation assistant.

Dame Edna, also known as Barry Humphries, was slightly ahead of Mel B, starting off at $200,000, which quickly increased to $286,000 through Jenny Craig if he could lose 20kg.

Magda Szubanski, who has probably had the most media attention throughout her transformation, earned $850,000 when she lost 26kg in 2009. The Kath and Kim star has recently spoken about how she gained the weight back four years later.

The resultant weight gain has led to Magda being offered an incredible $1.25 million to lose the weight again through Jenny Craig.
