And he looks great!

The first winner of Project Runway Jay McCarroll has accrued another victory - he won Celebrity Fit Club!

“I speak for the everyday person — it’s hard [to lose weight],” said McCarroll, who lost 40 lbs. “Would I rather eat Peanut M&Ms or go to the gym and get yelled at by my trainer? I’d probably pick the M&Ms.”

The designer currently weights 218 lbs. and hopes to lose another 20 this summer with workouts up to four times a week.

“I run up the steps at the Philadelphia Art Museum like Rocky did,” he said.

And although he's changed his diet, Jay does treat himself on the weekends.

“If I want nachos then I’ll have nachos,” he continued. “I’m obsessed with light string cheese from Trader Joe’s [grocery store], apples, oranges, cheese, a couple of crackers, almonds.”

He's just thrilled he can finally wear a pair of Levi's!

“They didn’t make my size before. And now I fit and I’m slowly going down in sizes,” Jay divulged.

Congrats, bb! Keep it up!

    I had high hopes for Jay. This isn't one I had envisioned. Love my season 1 winner, but just saying. So much talent that went where?

    Yay, Jay!



  5. 5

    can someone tell me where is the bad jay has from?
    Please! email me! or comment here!!!

    Good for him. I watched that show and he seemed like one of the very few(besides kevin and maybe shar) who actually gave a damn about loosing weight. He actually was regimated and tried to lose weight. He deserved to win because he took it seriously. Unlike Bobby Brown's Punk ass and Nicole Eggert's sloppy drunk ass.

    Re: Dorchester

    JAY-
    CONGRATS!!
    You look amazing-I don't know if you need to lose more weight though?
    You look healthy AND HAPPY.
    There is a BRAND NEW person in that photo.
    WAY TO GO! 2010 is YOUR year-and PEREZ's too! Best of LUCK!
    I will be waiting to see what you do next!!



  12. 12

    He has ugly bulbous legs. Yuck! Nice person though.



  13. 13

    Re: JessicaTandyWasMyHero – So agreed. Bobby and Nicole were insufferable. Tanisha at least started to care toward the end.

    Re: JessicaTandyWasMyHero

    I am talking about his Project Runway win and non-fashion career. I didn't think Jay would become another reality tv ass.



  15. 15

    Sooo proud of him! He looks delicious and now he needs his own damn show.



  16. 16

    he looks GREAT!!!



  17. 17

    A while ago there was a New York magazine article about how Jay was basically homeless and living in some spare room in the workshop where he worked AFTER winning Project Runway. I didn't expect him to fall this low though, even if he looks much better now. Good luck to him.



  18. 18

    gee boy, he looks good



  19. 19

    Luuurve his outfit! He looks great. I dig him.

    I'm always a little creeped out when people lose tons of weight and end up with giant bobbleheads.



  21. 21

    Um…you may have wanted to let us know there was a spoiler before you announced the winner. Kinda disappointed Perez!!!!



  22. 22

    So STOP hiding behind those stupid glasses!



  23. 23

    OMG - I would have never recognized him — he looks soooo adorable; however, I kind of like the fat Jay. Does anyone know if Heidi ever wear that red dress he made for her?



  24. 24

    I was thrilled he won! And then that the other team won too! I'm glad Bobby and that bitchy Baywatch chick got nothing. Felt bad for Shar though.



  25. 25

    So happy Jay won. You need to be "loud and proud" from now on!!!! No turning back! What a great success. (I went out and bought Dr. Ian's book yesterday to try to do the same thing). You were an inspiration with your dedication to the program. Kudos!!!! Hope your future is sooo bright!



  26. 26

    Where can I get the glasses that he is wearing?



  27. 27

    He shops at Trader Joe's? He'll lose more weight.



  28. 28

    Re: sticks – i know! i was just talking about that the other day! i thought she acted badly. don't know if she ever wore it.

    Congrats Jay! So happy for you and glad you are healthy!



  30. 30

    If the glasses he has on were his latest prize, give it back. How is grabbing items off the rack at Goodwill notable as fashion sense? And whats up with the Fu Manchu mustache? This dude is a mess.



  31. 31

    Love you Jay! Congratulations! Now get back to designing clothes! LOL



  32. 32

    40lbs? More like 80! Dude was fat. He's skinny now though, and doesn't need to lose another 20lbs.



  33. 33

    Girl, it's ALL about them glasses!



  34. 34

    He shouldn't lose one more pound let alone 20!! He looks amazing! Just maintain it darlin!



  35. 35

    I don't get it, he isn't remotely fat in this pic so why does he want to lose more?



  36. 36

    aw he looks great! I don't watch project runway so this was my first time seeing him and he was one of the coolest one's - totally motivated and positive attitude - that will take him a long way.



  37. 37

    I love Jay!



  38. 38

    I love Trader Joe's (sorry Whole Foods, you're my second favorite). If you want to be healthy and eat organic, shop at T.J. He doesn't look like he needs to lose more eight though. He, Kevin and Shar really did the work. I wanted anyone of them to win.



  39. 39

    Congrats Jay!!!! I admit when the season began I didn't think Jay would do well at all. I am so happy for him. He looks great. Kevin did well too. Shame on Britney for f*cking up his life!! The selfish cow - - boy karma is biting her until the end of her time. You don't steal another woman's man. Shar didn't deserve it. Look where Britney is now! Stupid pig needs a babysitter to watch her sorry ass 24/7/365 and lost custody of her own kids.



  40. 40

    he's a raging fucktard.
