The Bachelorette's Apollo Has Revealed His Devastating Past

The magician that everyone loved on the Bachelorette last night has revealed he has lost half his body weight after he suffered a heart attacked at age 22.

Apollo Jackson, 24, who is also known as Jake Spence, has told New Weekly of his dramatic transformation after he hit the scales at 150 kilograms.

“I went through a period where I was crazy stressed, so I ended up overweight. I put on 40 kilos, weighing 150kg, was mega-stressed, not happy and went through a bit of depression. Then I had a heart attack,” he told the publication.
“I was at a friend’s place. I had just finished a 14-hour shift and then boom.

“I ended up in critical care for two weeks and I just reassessed my life. I just went, ‘OK, what do I really want in my life?’ And at the end of the day it was making people smile and making people feel good and my heart has always been doing that.”

Well, he looks AWESOME now!

The Bachelorette airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
