We Finally Know The Truth About '90 Day Fiance's Big Ed

2020/06/29

Because of his physical differences resulting from Klippel Feil syndrome (KFS), Big Ed has been bullied since childhood. The reality TV star admitted to People that others have been teasing him for his neck since he was five years old. He revealed to Entertainment Tonight that he once "got stuck in the neck machine" in high school, which "became kind of a running joke."



In a blog post, the 90 Day Fiancé star wrote about how "bullying can have lifelong effects" and revealed that he was hurt by "the name calling and body shaming" that "resurfaced" following his time on 90 Day Fiancé. Big Ed said that he has learned to love himself, though, and wants to empower others who have also been victims of bullying to learn to "love [themselves], love each other, and be nice."


He revealed to Entertainment Tonight that his growing platform since being on 90 Day Fiancé has helped him to do just that, including helping one man who also has KFS and reached out after seeing him on the show. Big Ed said that the man was bullied and ready to "give up on life," but that he encouraged him not to, telling him, "Do not let this syndrome define who you are."
