Jokes aside, the two entertainment heavyweights plan on losing some serious weight, and we’re on board to help. Join them in their weight loss journey and you could win a R10 000 adidas shopping experience. Here’s how!

The Back Story

Recently, Dan and Jason revealed on The Dan Nicholl Show that they will go head-to-head to see who will lose the most body fat percentage by the time season nine of the show kicks off in April.

But through all the laughter, sweat, and tears, Dan and Jason hope that the weight loss challenge will be the start of a much needed lifestyle change.

“I turned 40 earlier this year, I’ve got two young kids and I’m definitely not as light, trim or chiselled as I should be,” Dan told us. “I want to be healthy and I want to be good for my kids so I want to learn to eat a little better, learn to exercise a little more, and generally just be a healthier person.”

The two share similar sentiments of wanting to be better men, in better health, so they can share more valuable moments with their loved ones.

They’ve lived very busy lifestyles, and with the constant travelling that comes with the demands of their jobs, they’ve completely avoided working out. But not anymore, with the challenge allowing them to take part in a variety of intense workouts, like training with The Lions rugby club.

At the start of December, Dan weighed in at 108.6kg, with Jason weighing in at 144.4kg. And with their newfound love for sticking to a strict diet and working out, they aim to be on the cover of MH come April 2019.
