Jacques Torres’ teeth on Nailed It!

A variety of Nailed It! viewers have taken to Twitter to make comment on Jacques Torres’ teeth.

One wrote: “Question. Are we just going to ignore Jacques Torres’ incredible weight lost and new teeth?! Because I’m confused …..”

While another said: “WHAT. HAPPENED. TO JACQUES FACE?? Someone replaced all his teeth with Chiclets and cut his body in half!!!?”

By the looks of things, Jacques underwent a total transformation in 2018 which involved getting a sparkly set of veneers in place of his natural teeth.

Jacques Torres – weight loss

As well as changing up his smile, Jacques has clearly lost a huge amount of weight.

E! News reported in 2018 that Jacques lost 60 lbs. Being a chocolatier and pastry chef, it’s probably pretty easy to gain weight with some tasting here and there.

But it was for a very important reason that Jacques decided to make changes to his diet and lifestyle.

Speaking to E! News, he said: “A lot of times, we know how to do it, but we don’t do it for maybe a lack of reason… Having a young boy, a young child—my wife is pregnant with a little girl now—I have a good reason to change my lifestyle.”
