When he was accepted into the weight-loss ranch, James Crutchfield didnt realize it would cost him the shirt off his back.
Crutchfield, who was eliminated this past Tuesday (Jan. 5), had to do a live weigh-in before a crowd of his friends, family, and strangers in the middle of downtown Orlando, Florida, shirtless.
He says, I was extremely nervous. I havent taken off my shirt in public since I was a child at the beach. I mean, my mayor was there!
Going topless, as it turns out, is very liberating, and now he isnt afraid of stripping in public.
He adds, It was a real confidence booster.
Though he exited the ranch first, Crutchfield is on his way to a healthier body, having already dropped 75 pounds.
