Ryan Seacrest is the poster boy and long-time host and co-host – he co-hosted the first season of American Idol: The Search for a Superstar in 2002, though has been the one and only host since then – of American Idol. Virtually nobody argues that Ryan is unattractive, sloppily-dressed, unflattering, or repulsive.
After all, he knows enough about fashion and personal care to have founded successful fashion and skincare product brands, Ryan Seacrest Distinction and Polished, be whole-hearted enough to create a nonprofit organization that gives away millions of dollars each year, the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, and is sufficiently heartthrob material to host a daytime TV show geared towards women, Live with Kelly and Ryan.
However, even though Mr. Seacrest is known as one of the most attractive men across show business and the world of entertainment, he spent his younger years as an overweight, not-so-savvy, totally-not-astute child, adolescent, and teenager.
The infamous picture
The young, childhood version of Ryan Seacrest – totally distinguishable from what the Hollywood superstar looks like today – wore large aviator glasses, parted his hair down the middle-right of his head, seemingly stuck his head out of his parents’ car window while driving to school, and sported a navy-and-white striped, unbuttoned, three-button collared polo.
His 1980s school portrait photographer offset the young, super-chunky, brace-faced boy on a light blue background, fading from pale blue to a darker-yet-still-baby-blue from bottom to top.
Ryan Seacrest was a heavyset child from Georgia, and by the looks of the aforementioned picture, his parents stuffed his stomach with the entire kitchen every night at dinner. According to Ryan himself, he supposedly snuck food from his home’s kitchen on a daily basis, never exercised, lacked confidence, and always covered his fat frame with a t-shirt when dipping in the pool.
Here’s how he changed
Seacrest (@RyanSeacrest) became fit in his late teens through the tried-and-true weight loss method of exercising and eating right. Today, he splits his weekly average of five hours spent in the gym between weightlifting, running, biking, and yoga.
