MAFS Sam is now utterly unrecognisable

That's some transformation!

He was dubbed “Australia’s hottest tradie” during his stint on Married At First Sight, but these days Sam Ball looks utterly unrecognisable from his on-screen self.

The 26-year-old reality star flashed a smile for the cameras as he stepped out in Sydney on February 16 rocking a new hairstyle and a freshly shaven complexion.

The tattooed hunk looked dramatically different without his trademark stubble and mop of brunette locks, cutting a casual figure as he strolled in the summer sun.

His hair was tightly cropped on both sides leaving the eye to focus on a thick cascade of curls on top of his head.

Sam opted for a black t-shirt from Calvin Klein and grey cotton shorts which he paired with black Havaiana thongs.

Carrying his phone and a pair of Rayban sunglasses, the New South Wales native looked tanned and toned for his afternoon outing.

Sam has come under fire for a variety of reasons since he first appeared on the Channel 9 social experiment at the beginning of the year.

The construction worker was slammed for his body shaming comments about TV bride Elizabeth Sobinoff, and earned the wrath of MAFS viewers when his text message flirtation with co-star Ines Basic turned into an all-out sexual affair.

During an interview on 2Day FM, radio host Ed Kavalee labelled the cheating groom “the worst person ever” and hung up the phone mid-conversation.
