From flab to fantastic! Big Brother’s Chad Hurst reveals he was bullied in school for being the ‘fat boy’ … before losing weight and becoming a model
His chiseled abs and perfect jawline have made him a popular contestant among female Big Brother viewers.
But Chad Hurst had to work hard for his Adonis-esque physique.
The reality star said TV Week on Monday that he was bullied as a child for being overweight before completely changing his body.

“When I was an adult, I was the fat boy,” he confessed.
“I was pale and freckled and had bleached hair that went a little bit of ranga. I once taped a tube to a tree. They used to call me Choad, Little Blob and Fatty. I struggled. ”
At the age of 15, Chad started training in the gym and went from 90 kg to 75 kg.

After becoming ‘addicted’ to lifting weights, he put the weight back in the muscles and eventually gave the scales a weight of 102 kg with only seven percent body fat.
After being told to lose 20kg to pursue a modeling career, Chad stopped lifting weights and instead focused on “ cardio every day. ”
Once he dropped some of the muscle, his career reached new heights and was eventually sent abroad for work.

Despite his successful modeling career, Chad is still concerned about his body image.
“It’s a killer industry. It’s not good for mental health, ”he said.
“But now that I’m established, it’s more about being happy. I have a healthy life, but I can have some beers with the boys and don’t worry about a six pack all year round. ‘
