Jenny Craig Denies Offering Spokesperson Position to Matt LeBlanc and Britney Spears

Carlsbad, Calif. (Oct. 7, 2005) - Jenny Craig, Inc. announced today that it has no plans to replace Kirstie Alley as its Star Client any time soon, and denies offering Matt LeBlanc and Britney Spears spokesperson positions. Kirstie Alley remains an integral part of the Jenny Craig team, and the impact of her success has inspired many other celebrities and non-celebrities alike to "call Jenny" and join the program.

"Our business grows stronger every day as a result of Kirstie's participation in our program, and we are very pleased with her personal weight-loss achievements," says Patti Larchet, CEO of Jenny Craig. "Her success demonstrates how, through her commitment, energy and motivation, Kirstie embodies the core values of Jenny Craig."

Kirstie joined the program in December 2005 and has dropped more than 50 pounds to date on the Jenny YourStyle® plan. She credits her success to the individuality of the program, her consultant, and of course, Jenny's versions of the chicken fettuccini and chocolate cake.
