Big Ed Brown, the unforgettable personality from the hit TV show “90 Day Fiancé,” is on a mission to transform his body. The 58-year-old TV star, standing at 4’11”, recently shared an Instagram Reel of his workout routine, aiming for an ambitious goal: to attain a body akin to basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal’s physique. Despite the height and build difference, the reality star remains determined in his pursuit.
The Instagram Reel features Ed Brown performing dumbbell hammer curls in front of a punching bag. Dressed in a black tank top and white workout shorts, his workout intensity is palpable. As the track “Edamame” by bbno$ blares in the background, Ed’s determination is evident in his intense expression, eyes narrowing with each rep.
Though the video racked up over 5,600 likes, comments were a mixed bag of encouragement, humor, and criticism, with many focusing on his less-than-perfect workout form.
