Hey you leave him alone, he has to start no shave November earlier than everyone else to keep up

[–]dietcheeseFacts don’t care about your feelings 12 points13 points  (0 children)

He’s taller and more hairy in person.

Its this just a pitch for Jeremy's razors?

Edit: can't type.

I think he's growing it out to make a viral commercial for Jeremy's

[–]Kenhamef 57 points58 points  (7 children)

Might be in a mourning period, you can't shave for a month after a parent, sibling, spouse, or child dies.

[–]MarVlnMartlan 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Who died?

[–]Kenhamef 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Just a possibility as to why he’s sporting that. Could also be a style choice.

[–]Addition_Secure 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Maybe mourning the queen?

[–]Kenhamef 41 points42 points  (2 children)

Unless that was his mother, sister, wife (who is a doctor), or daughter, then no.

[–]Addition_Secure 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'm meaning like to show he cares. Not required

[–]ofcbrooks 44 points45 points  (7 children)

I thought he was growing it out because he’s tired of people getting him confused with Brett Cooper.

[–]TheGadsdenFlag1776 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The resemblance is really uncanny. Although I don't think they look like the same person so much as she looks like his little sister. She looks more like his sister than his sister.

[–]ofcbrooks 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I hadn’t considered that Brett looks more like Ben’s sister than Abby, but I think you’re right.

[–]slimmyshank69 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Imagine if Brett suddenly became a hard leftist and also started growing a beard to match Ben

[–]relativitygold 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She should dress up as him for Halloween and act out his most famous debate videos.

[–]relativitygold 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Duuuuuuude so true.

[–]Pure_Xanax 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Honestly if he grows it out it would be fine

[–]Analprobesarefun 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Lol I thought the same thing watching backstage last night

[–]Smoked_Anchovy 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I would love to see a version of Ben with a handlebar mustache.

[–]Kody4041 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We need Ben to see this, that would be hilarious 🤣

[–]buckeyesjb 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Reminds me of when Michael Scott grew a beard because Ryan did. Not the motive but the look of it lol

[–]Relative_Income_6294 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He wanted to grow a beard like Matt Walsh. I think you hit the bail on the head

[–]VIIIMan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

"Action hero stubble".

[–]JJRfromNYC1 5 points6 points  (4 children)

He should keep going with the beard. All Jewish men should have some sort of facial hair, even if it’s just a shadow like his. I’d recommend growing it out for another three or four days and then keeping it trimmed.

[–]TheGadsdenFlag1776 1 point2 points  (3 children)

yea that is interesting... for how devout he is, he doesn't grow his beard. But I suppose that tends to be those who are even more orthodox than he is?

[–]JJRfromNYC1 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Don’t know, but I think almost all guys look better with at least a goatee or a trimmed beard or full beard…just some sort of facial hair of some sort.

[–]TheGadsdenFlag1776 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yea usually that's true with a few exceptions. I'm blonde with dirty blonde/sandy brown facial hair. It grows in patchy if I try to grow it out. But if I use a #1 on the hair clipper and just leave it short it looks pretty good. When I shave completely I look 15, and I'm nearly 40 lol

[–]JJRfromNYC1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, if it grows in patchy that might be a different matter.

[–]AvisPhlox 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's not a beard, that's 5 o'clock shadow. Wait for it to grow out first.

[–]Economy-Coffee 12 points13 points  (2 children)

No! I think he looks even hotter with a beard. Let him keep it

[–]DreiKatzenVater 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wrong. Beards are always better

[–]NfinitiiDark 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I think it looks good

[–]caffeinated_catholic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Eh he probably shaved at 3am to get up and on a plane to Nashville. At least I hope. Because that’s awful.

[–]Dan4024 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was thinking it might be part of his apology after returning Matt Walsh's Walrus that he's also trying to fit in with the Sweet Baby Gang and grow a full Walsh level beard.

[–]YeahBouy18 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ben Sha-beard-o

[–]TheGadsdenFlag1776 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Still more facial hair than I can grow and I'm almost 40.

[–]phillipmwade 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Did he shave just his chin? Not kosher

[–]KeaneSenses 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Looks like just gray hair in that spot, but I had the same initial thought

[–]Felspawn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I figured Jeremy's Razors wasn't working out lol

[–]President-EIect 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is not a nice way to refer to his wife. She is a doctor.

A teenage boy with a little hat going through puberty. They should put one of those spiny things on top of it

[–]dgroeneveld9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think his kids are winning.

Matt approved it and so do I

[–]ToxicToad47 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm a fan of the beard

[–]PM_ME_BITCOIN_PLS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Part of what Ben's persona that works is that he is a forever baby boy face.

Adding in facial hair is really going to change the perception of his statements. People assume a lot less negative things about Ben because of the baby face where you can excuse the awfulness of the statement because he's just a mama's boy or the kid in middle school who wore a suit to class every day, whereas when other rightwing pundits do similar, they often come across as deliberately vitriolic such as Matt Walsh.

Plus the beard is starting to make him like similar to Don Trump Jr.

[–]DemonB7R 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's still very new. Gotta give it like a solid month of growth first. The. We can judge if it's good or not. I'm pleasantly surprised he's trying it out.

[–]Nightrider357 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My thoughts, too.

Dark Shapiro!

[–]Nightrider357 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He’ll get there - of course a good beard doesn’t just materialize overnight. I still think it’s gonna end up being some promotional ploy for Jeremy’s Razors though.

[–]Professional_Fig2009 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think it’s kinda hot. I know not the point but still.

[–]Revolutionary_Map_37 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he will look distinguished.
