Jay McCarroll gets physical

Today’s blog is a bit tangential to fashion, but I can’t help myself. I just love Jay McCarroll. I don’t know why… he just seems so endearingly *real* in the midst of other B and C-list celebrities prancing about in the realm of scripted/”reality” TV shows. Or maybe it’s because he vaguely resembles my husband, and I’m experiencing what psychologists call “transference.”

I happened to catch my first episode of Celebrity Fit Club this week, and why did I tune in? To see Jay, of course. Half the contestants I don’t even know of. And I could care less about the Shar Jackson/Kevin Federline subplot. Sebastian Bach (it’s ok if you don’t remember him, he was never that famous either) needs to lay off the blue pencil eyeliner, that I can say with impunity. Men pushing 50 should avoid the big hair-big makeup look that they rocked nearly 3 decades ago. Turn the page, dude. Seriously.

But Jay? Love! Is signing on to CFC Jay’s attempt to stay in the public consciousness, and stretch out his 15-minutes-of-Project-Runway-fame? Maybe drive some more potential buyers to his website to buy his goodies? Dunno.

But he’s looking a lot thinner, and had lost nearly 40 pounds overall in the episode I watched, which was already 6 weeks into the Fit Club experiment.

Here’s to wishing Jay Bear the best while getting lean and mean, and healthy to boot. My favorite moment from the episode was Jay telling Bobby Brown (a fellow team mate) to follow the program and stop eating all the potato chips for the next 3 weeks, “and the Cheetos, and all the other things that I *dream* of eating every night, but I don’t!” 

Go Jay Go!
