Celebrity Apprentice and Survivor star David Genat is known for his good looks and long locks, but it seems as though the star was sick of the long hair after taking to Instagram to show off a dramatic new look.

In a new post, the 39-year-old revealed he'd chopped off his long locks, captioning the snap, "Just a little off the sides."

David jokingly responded to Matt's comment, "Hold onto your chickens."

Alex Hayes, David's Celebrity Apprentice co-star, commented, "The platinum god upgrade."

One follower commented that they were confused by the new look, "Lol what!!!! Not sure how I feel about this Dave," to which he responded, "Me either."

"Oh noooo....will you lose your powers?" another follower joked.

"Oh I absolutely love it," a third added, while someone else wrote, "Sooo much better."

"Whether it’s long or short. You always look good as always. Nice to have a change every now and then," another said.

David recently opened up about the physical demands on models and why it's not really all that glamorous a job.

“My thoughts on health and fitness have changed so much over the years," he told the Daily Telegraph. "During my modelling career I had to be a certain size to fit into sample clothing and it was something I struggled with because I’m a big dude."

"At six-foot-three, I was always in a calorie deficit and doing lots of cardio which I hated. But as I got older I wanted to feel and look strong and I started focusing on lifting weights and eating the correct amount of protein and carbs.

"Learning about fitness over the years and how it evolves with your age and body is what has kept it so interesting for me."

To keep his body in peak condition, David is weight training four or five times a week, as well as boxing or Jujitsu twice a week and then anything else that he can fit into his schedule during the week.

Now, he tries to prioritise sleep, his water intake and exercise to ensure he feels his best.
