When it comes to our favorite TV stars, we often wonder if their looks will stay the same forever or if they’ll start to change as we get to know them better. For example, did you know that Luke Combs lost a ton of weight after his accident? Let’s take a look at his body transformation together!
Changing Looks & Personality
It’s no secret that Luke Combs is one of our favorite TV stars. The quirky mechanic turned car salesman is incredibly likable, and we always enjoy seeing his lighter side. Despite his lighter appearance, however, he has been known to shed a few pounds here and there. When the cameras weren’t around, Luke often joked about his weight loss on Instagram, revealing that he had gone from a size 14 shoe to a size 7. We can also tell that he’s working hard to maintain his new slimmer physique by posting various workouts and meal plans online. In early March 2020, he shared a picture of himself in a group fitness class, and our minds immediately traveled back to that of a bulkier man, hoping that his shoe size hadn’t increased.
While promoting his new book, Combs revealed in a Q&A that he had almost lost his life in an accident back in 2018. He was rushed to the hospital after his Jeep rolled over, leaving him with major injuries. He suffered damage to his spinal cord and had to learn to walk all over again. According to the interview, Luke stated that he wasn’t prepared for the intensity of his injuries and that he was “freaking out” back then. Luckily, he was able to overcome the odds and said that the accident had “made him a better person.”
It’s evident that this experience transformed him. Not only did it cause him to lose a significant amount of weight, but it also made him a more determined man. When he wasn’t able to do something himself, he got extremely frustrated, and that led him to work even harder to prove himself. As he stated in the Q&A, “I knew I could do something about it. I could get back on my feet, walk again, and prove everyone wrong.”
Even though we were disappointed to hear that he was going through a tough time in the early days after the accident, we knew that this was a man who would come back stronger than ever before. And he did!
Luke Combs is undoubtedly one of the most interesting characters on Vanderpin, and we can’t wait to see what future developments he has in store. Judging by his Instagram posts, it seems that he’s still working hard to maintain his new sexy look and isn’t afraid to show off his new sculpted body. In early March 2020, he posted a picture of himself in a group fitness class with the caption: “You know what they say about the gym? They don’t build muscles, they break them! Thanks to @benjaminihay for the coffee and the company! #newme#newbody.” We’re excited to see what Luke has in store for us in the future, whether it’s another book, a new season of Vanderpin, or his own talk show!
