His mans-formations have the internet going gaga.
Just went you thought women had the monopoly on social media shapeshifting: This male Florida catfish underwent a transformation so incredible, people mistook him for a completely different person. A video detailing his mouthwatering metamorphosis currently boasts 2.5 million views on TikTok.
“Have a great day you beautiful people,” reads the caption to the clip, posted by TikTok user @keithedgett, a self-proclaimed plus-sized model who frequently posts videos promoting body positivity.
The aforementioned clip, set to a sped-up version of the song “Unholy” by Sam Smith, starts with a frumpy-looking Edgett in a ratty T-shirt, messy beard and thick-rimmed glasses like a garden-variety couch potato. His hair also appears to be tied back.
The camera then cuts to the shape-shifter rocking flowing Jason Momoa-esque locks, no glasses and a brown vest and white dress shit like a sexy cruise ship magician.
Needless to say, his “Beauty And The Beast”-evoking metamorphosis had social media smitten.
“I was not prepared for that,” gushed one salivating female commenter, while another wrote, “If never judge a book by its cover was a video.
“Sorry, can you do that again? I was packing my husband’s stuff,” joked one TikTok wit of Edgett’s extreme makeover.
“Why did I gasp so loudly my husband asked ‘what’s wrong’?” quipped another.
Women weren’t the only ones going gaga.
“Honestly, my marriage to my wife isn’t that serious,” joked one male viewer.
“Is this for real the same person??” another wondered, to which Edgett replied: “Sometimes I question it myself.”
The humongous heartthrob has flaunted his “catfish” persona in other videos. In one, the TikTok wizard is seen gazing off wistfully with his Fabio-esque mane at full mast with the caption, “I ain’t never wrestled a lion but I’ve definitely choked a cougar.”
Edgett doesn’t reveal his exact secrets from transforming into the incredible hunk, only disclosing that it’s about “presentation.”
Case in point: A video juxtaposing his younger self sporting a huge gut and the aforementioned long-haired Adonis. He also frequently posts videos of himself working out at the gym.
Body positivity is an important issue to Edgett, who was reportedly hospitalized a year ago after years of being bulimic, per a shocking clip.
“The last meal I threw up almost cost me my life,” he wrote in the caption. “The last meal I threw up on purpose almost cost me my life. Sliced my stomach liner and cut open an artery. Lost 2+ liters of blood.”
Earlier this year, a Russian catfish who was accused of tricking men, explained how she accomplished her incredible transformation using various cosmetic tricks.
