SAS Australia star Jett Kenny surprised his social media fans on Thursday when he revealed his brand new look.

While he’s kept his signature long hair, the model has shaved the impressive beard he’s been sporting during the reality TV show and now has very little stubble.

“Oh there you are!” his mother, and former Olympian, Lisa Curry commented alongside a heart eyes emoji.

A number of followers also complimented his new look, including Dancing With The Stars’ Courtney Act.

“Ur so hot,” she replied, before adding, “and also really lovely and sweet”.


“Million times better, we can now see your handsome face, Jett,” one person wrote, with another adding, “A whole new man!”

“I was loving the Viking beard look but handsome either way,” someone else shared, while a fourth said, “About time Jett!”.

Jett’s latest Instagram post comes shortly after he made an emotional confession on SAS Australia this week about his sister Jaimi.

The Ironman admitted to his fellow recruits that he “never fully understood” what she was going through with the mental health battle that claimed her life in September last year at the age of 33.

"We did everything we could as a family and for Jaimi to try bring her out of it but unfortunately that wasn’t the case,” he said.

“To me, it was like, you have the willpower to change your life and turn things around. But that’s me. I can’t speak for someone who’s going through mental health issues because I’ve never been there.

“Everyone has to do the best they can for the people that they love, but when you can’t it makes you question yourself. Like, ‘Was I a good enough brother?’”

Shortly after the episode aired, his mother Lisa took to social media to applaud her son’s strength.

“Jett, you have given us so many reasons to be proud of the young man you have become, for all the things you do, the kind, humble, funny, caring person you are known for,” she wrote.

“This is why people love you and this is why for dad and I, our proudest moments are when we can tell people that you’re our son.

"I know it took a lot of courage to say what you did and we all know how hard it is to say the words out loud, but you know that Jaimi would be so proud of you - she always was, and she loved you so much, always her little brother. Stay strong my beautiful boy.”
