Big Ed from ’90 Day Fiancé’ used to be, like, really hot

Even if you don’t watch “90 Day Fiancé” on TLC, odds are that you’ve seen photos and videos of this guy floating around.

His name is Ed Brown, AKA “Big Ed,” and he currently stars on “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.”

Online, people love to hate on Big Ed and his apparent lack of a neck.

Naturally, then, fans were shocked to learn that back in the ’80s, the reality TV star was actually hot.

Back in February, Ed casually posted a photo of himself from 1988 on Instagram, noting that he “was in shape before getting married.” Indeed you were, Ed!

Online, people have expressed their disbelief over Big Ed’s transformation.

“No way!!! Really? NO!!!” another stunned user said.

“You’re lying. You have to be,” a third confused person remarked.

People were so shocked by Ed’s throwback photos that he actually had to clarify with TMZ that they were real. Welp.
