Most people who are personalities, broadcasters, and otherwise participants in radio broadcasts have a “face for radio,” a reasonably polite term for saying those people aren’t very attractive.
Mr. Ryan Seacrest, the 43-year old native of Atlanta, Georgia, is known as a sleek, fit, handsome, attractive, well-dressed host of shows like American Idol and Live with Kelly and Ryan. Though his face has adorned television screens, lifestyle magazine pages, and the Internet for many years, Mr. Seacrest wasn’t always as objectively attractive as he has been for nearly three decades.
It’s safe to say that most people who have been active on social media platforms for a few years have seen the infamous school-age photo portrait of Ryan Seacrest. In that unflattering middle school portrait, featuring a fading baby-blue background, it’s clear that the much-younger Ryan Seacrest certainly wasn’t popular, socially astute, or handsome.
At that young age, Seacrest has admitted that he was one of the most overweight kids in schools he attended – even up through his graduation from Dunwoody High School at the age of 17 – where he was known to wear thick t-shirts while swimming to hide his unappealing upper half, steal countless calories’ worth of food from his mother’s kitchen without getting caught, and even have a reputation of stashing cookies away in his room despite his parents’ outright disapproval.
Nearly immediately after he graduated from Dunwoody High School, teenage Ryan Seacrest began dieting and exercising to sculpt and later maintain the physique he always wanted. Today, Seacrest tells his fans that he aims to spend at least five hours exercising per week despite his grueling work schedule. He loves snacking on veggie juices, raw veggies, and almonds, as well as swimming and engaging in circuit workouts, all per a recent interview with Men’s Journal.
