    Default Rachel Hunter criticized for weight gain





    Model and Rod Stewart’s ex-wife Rachel Hunter has been criticized all over the internet over the past couple of days for what appears to be a bit of weight gain. Hunter is one of the stars of NBC’s Celebrity Circus. Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like: celebs who learn circus acts. Definitely a useful life skill that they can use later on. The women are all in tight sequined outfits, which are pretty unforgiving.
    In some recent pictures Hunter is shown performing in a corset, and it appears pretty obvious that she has gained some weight. She claims that the show’s vigorous routines and her naturally athletic shape have caused her to bulk up, making her appear heavier on camera. No matter what’s going on, everyone from the mainstream media to internet bloggers are attacking Hunter and harping on her figure.
    She made her name as the super-svelte swimwear model with endless legs.
    But Rachel Hunter cut a chunkier figure when she appeared on the American reality television show Celebrity Circus, her somewhat sturdier shape barely contained by a corset-style outfit and unflattering fringed miniskirt.
    The 38-year-old has complained that the athletic nature of Celebrity Circus has caused her to gain muscle and made her look bigger.
    Her increased strength was certainly evident in her bulging biceps and broad shoulders - she has performed on the trapeze and walked the tightrope during the series.
    [From the Daily Mail]
    The Daily Mail is actually much kinder in their phrasing than a lot of the other articles out there. I think it’s pretty clear that Hunter has put on perhaps a bit of weight and a good deal of muscle. It’d be hard to do her routines over and over and not get stronger. I think she still looks gorgeous; she just doesn’t look the same as she did fifteen years ago. And who the hell does? It’s sort of ridiculous that we expect that from people, models or not.

    It's not that she's bulked up with muscle (no way is that mostly muscle, sorry), it's middle age. She seems to gain weight easily and quickly anyway - I can sympathise - but she still looks pretty good. It's ridiculous to compare her to how she was 15+ years ago. I know a former swim/sportswear model and she says that during that time she starved herself and lived at the gym. She had to exercise obsessively to keep her body toned.

    Middle age hit her like a ton of bricks then. I think what's more likely is she stopped going to the gym maybe? Because I remember it was only 3 years ago that people were astounded at how hot she looked in candid bikini pictures.

    Yeah, and before that she really porked up - around the time she split with Rod Stewart? She was never skinny to begin with.

    She has a gorgeous face!!!! I think her body is ok anyway.

    What is the problem... has she got a modeling/working contract which binds her to a specific weight??

    She's 38. I wouldn't call that middle aged.

    But yeah she shouldn't be criticized for not looking how she did in her top model days.

    She was never one of the twig models, and her body type naturally isn't the kind to be thin or prone to losing weight.

    I don't think she looks bad.

    That weight gain is not middle age anything. There is lack of tone. She gained fat, though I would not call her fat. She now has to face what us regular women do, the fact that we don't have airbrushing to give us perfect bodies, therefore we do not look good in everything.

    Well, that dress can't be helping. But sheesh, it's not like she's actually fat or anything.

    I think she looks hotter with a bit of fat. Actually, I think everyone does.
