Most folks remember Billy Bob as the massive kid from Varsity Blues. He drove a big blue truck, and looked out for his fellow teammates as if they were family.
He also liked to eat a lot, just like his pet pig (which he called a dog).
Since the classic high school football movie was released in 1999, Ron Lester (Billy Bob’s real-life name) has been on a mission to drop the pounds. Judging from this photo, that’s exactly what he did.

According to his IMDB profile, Lester at one point weighed over 500 pounds, but between surgery and hard work he lost 348 pounds. He underwent 14 plastic surges in total to help remove excess skin.
