King Curtis, the child star who went viral after appearing on ‘Wife Swaps’ is now a grown-up who loves hunting.

While he was only six when he was featured on the show, he quickly became an internet sensation for his love of bacon.

However, now 19 years old and sporting a beard, Curtis, whose last name is Holland, is a welder who enjoys shooting wildlife in his spare time, which is clear by his Instagram profile.

Watch this toddlers reaction to a piece of bacon below…

Despite being all grown up, he has admitted that he still loves bacon.

Speaking to the New Stateman in 2017, Holland said: “Every morning my mum gets up and we all cook bacon together.”

The saying that made an internet sensation, ‘I want my bacon’ has made him a celebrity within the town he lives in.

He further added: “We live in a small community, and a lot of people say that I’m the movie star.

“I mean I don’t have a Twitter but a lot of people say that I’m up there just about every week.”

The 19-year-old even revealed he got offered the opportunity to be the mascot for the local butchers.

Even though the video reached the top of the YouTube trending section, Holland has no interest in being an internet star and is happy with his current career.

In fact, he is a member of the Future Farmers of America organisation.

Holland’s appearance on Wife Swaps saw him clash with Joy, a fitness fanatic who was determined to change the youngster’s eating habits.

However, he was not having it and would constantly answer back.

This led to one of the most iconic moments in the show, where he told Joy: “I don’t like this crap. No, I want my bacon, I gotta tell you something. Bacon is good for me.”

He then packed his bags and left the house, uttering the words ‘You’ll never see this face again.’

Despite this claim, he made his way back home where he declared: “I’m back to show her who’s boss: King Curtis.”
