I was world’s biggest bodybuilder ‘Freakenstein’ weighing 150kg – but I’m now unrecognisable after I DIED for one minute

A FORMER bodybuilder turned CEO, famously known as Freakenstein, is unrecognisable after giving up professional bodybuilding.

Paul Dillett, 57, rose to fame in the 90’s after earning a top 10 title in the 1993 Mr Olympia, and placing fourth in his first Arnold Classic.

The 6ft 2, also widely known as Jurassic Paul, has been featured in several fitness and bodybuilding articles, and was on the cover of Muscular Development magazine.

He gave up bodybuilding in 2012 after founding the World Beauty Fitness and Fashion Competition (WBFF) in 2007.

The competition judges not only the individual’s physique, but their stage presence, beauty and marketability too.

Some of the categories within the competition include Men’s Bodybuilding Pro, Muscle Model, Fitness Model, Woman’s Figure Pro, Diva Fitness Model and Diva Bikini Model.

The ex bodybuilder also started up WBFF Kids in 2019, for ‘Mini Diva’s’ and ‘Mini Mr’s’.

Dillett spoke out earlier this year about dying for a minute during the Arnold Classic event in 1994, revealing that he came “very close” to losing his life that day.

He told the Generation Iron Fitness and Bodybuilding Network in 2021 that the incident was partially caused by having too much calcium and not enough magnesium in his body.

He said doctors couldn’t put the IV needle into his veins because his body was dry.

The then 29-year-old bodybuilder was dead for a minute and revealed that he felt as if he was in an open space.

He admitted: “I didn’t even know that I was gone, I just know I felt like I was in an open space and it looked blue.”

After collapsing, it took four officials to carry him off stage.

Dillett continued to compete for another two decades but said the incident remained in the back of his mind.

The ex athlete also said in a 2021 exclusive interview with the bodybuilding network, called ‘Paul Dillett: Bodybuilding is Dead’, “I wish people could have seen what bodybuilding was in the 90’s.

“We would sign autographs until our fingers were swollen… the fans back in the day were so die hard.

“Now I tell people bodybuilding is dead, bodybuilding is not what it used to be,” he added.
