90 Day Fiance‘s Big Ed posted a thirst-worthy throwback picture to his Instagram account, leaving fans wondering “what happened?”
Big Ed has 90 Day Fiance viewers split into two groups – those who love him and those who hate him. Adopting a “new year, new me” mindset, Big Ed is bent on making over his image, and if a recently posted throwback picture is anything to go by, he might be deriving his fitness inspiration from his younger self.
A lot of viewers of TLC’s hit franchise ended up disliking Big Ed because of the way he treated his then-girlfriend Rosemarie Vega, but since the show came to an end, he is cashing in on his popularity and regularly posting pictures to his Instagram account.
Big Ed will be returning to the 90 Day Fiance franchise as a cast member on the new spinoff dubbed, 90 Day: The Single Life. However, to attract a new girlfriend, Big Ed needs to look his best, or at least like he used to.
The reality TV star recently shared a photo of himself that seems from decades ago. Big Ed is nearly unrecognizable in the pic of him posing in white shorts. Fans were understandably shocked to see a lean and tan young version of Big Ed, or “Lil’ Ed” as one fan wrote.
“That’s not even big Ed, that’s just Ed,” another fan pointed out. Most fans who took to the comments section had one primary sentiment, “what happened?” While most fans couldn’t wrap their heads around the fact that Ed was once slim, others commented on the thirst trap.

“Studmuffin!” one commenter noted, while another compared him to Ryan Reynolds. “Damn Big Ed, I know this guy is still inside you somewhere, let him out!” one commenter wrote.
Although Bid Ed no longer looks like the photo he posted, he still got a considerable number of fans that continue to encourage him to reach his full potential. Stay tuned to WittyScoop for the latest 90 Day Fiance news.
