Jay Pharoah reveals his 40-pound weight loss in some stunning photos on Instagram and Twitter that reveal a sculpted torso. The former ‘Saturday Night Live’ star also opens up on how he achieved the dramatic transformation and fitness.
The 28-year-old Jay Pharoah took to Instagram to reveal some stunning photos. He also shared a snap of the scales showing his current weight is 173.6 pounds. A Google search reveals his height to be six-foot-one.
He captioned the photo montage (which you can see below) “One more week till we shoot and I ain't been this weight since I was 12!!!”
Confirming how much weight he lost, he Tweeted: “Dropped 40 pounds over the last year no supplements just training n hard work YOU CAN DO IT 2!”
Yes, that’s the key. It’s just putting in the effort; the workouts and a proper diet. Perhaps he’ll share more tips and pointers? If so we’ll update!
Jay Pharoah was a longtime SNL cast member, and known for his impressions of President Obama and, of late, a sleepy-eyed Dr. Ben Carson, in last year’s GOP primary race skits. Just last month it was announced that he will not return for the show’s 42nd season.
His new project is “White Famous,” a Showtime pilot of which Jamie Foxx serves as executive producer and it’s loosely based on Foxx’s life story. He portrays a comedian, Floyd Mooney, who strives to maintain his integrity as he achieves mainstream success, i.e. “white famous.”
In the meantime, fans can check out his appearance in the YouTube series ‘“Hot Ones” which sees him reviewing hot sauce and doing many of his famous impressions from Denzel Washington to Eddie Murphy; you can see a preview below.
