‘King Curtis’ Looks Unrecognizable Eight Years After Saying ‘I Want To Be Fat And Happy’ In A Wife Swap Appearance Goes Viral

The kid dubbed “King Curtis” after appearing on Wife Swap and saying “I want to be fat and happy” looks unrecognizable 13 years later.

Curtis Holland, now 19, rose to fame after stealing the show with these fast food cravings for an episode in 2009.

The youngster became a viral craze after famously battling his fitness enthusiast surrogate mother Joy, who wanted to rid her home of unhealthy snacks.

At one point, a boy from Vanceboro, North Carolina, said: “Chicken nuggets are like my family.”

And he said to Joy: “I don’t want to be thin! I want to be fat and happy.”

In one tantrum, the chicken nugget-loving tyke wrote “I don’t follow your rules” on a Post-It note.

In another particularly memorable scene, he responded to Joy’s fruit and vegetable diet by saying, “Bacon is good for me!”

This quote quickly became an internet meme – and it was even remixed into a song.

Thirteen years later, Curtis is unrecognizable, appearing as a keen hunter and fisherman and working as a welder.

Talk to New Statesman in 2017, Curtis said he still loves bacon — and he eats it every day.

“Every morning my mother wakes up and we all cook bacon together,” he said.

Not long after the Wife Swap, the boy’s love of bacon is said to have led to a strange deal where a local bacon company wants to make him its mascot.

Discussing his online popularity, the teenager said: “We live in a small community, and a lot of people say I’m a movie star.

“I mean I don’t have Twitter but a lot of people say I go there only about every week.”

In 2015, Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale even wanted to know where King Curtis ended up.

Curtis posted a response video with Lucy on YouTube and confirmed that he was approached to shoot a reality series about the pilot in 2012.

After the failure, he appealed to the networks to improve it, but he was unsuccessful in his attempt to find popularity.

Although he starred in an episode of Pawn Stars about an American family pawn shop in 2016, Curtis said he’s now shelved his plans to become a reality star.

But he added: “If I can go to someone and make their day and make them smile, I feel like I’ve done a great job.”
