Dancing with the Stars, E! star Aaron Carter now unrecognizable

Dancing with the Stars 9 fifth place cast member Aaron Carter, who also starred in E!’s House of Carters, a train wreck of a show, has revealed his new body. And like Dancing with the Stars 11 cast member Jennifer Gray, who looks nothing like she did in the 1980s, he looks completely different, like a caricature of a skinny Incredible Hulk.

Last week, he tweeted this photo and wrote that he was “working on my mind, music, and body for a new album release.” He followed that with another, slightly less scary photo.

Aaron seems to be taking subsequent criticism of his frightening body well; he retweeted this E! News story, which called his new look both “superscary” and “intense.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.
