Dr. Phil is probably as much known for his trademark 'stache as he is for his straight-talking advice. So we were shocked beyond belief when we heard the news that he has shaved it all off! What would he look like? Would we even be able to recognize the new and possibly improved (although we have our doubts) Dr. Phil sans his mustache?
Take a look at the bottom of this page to see for yourselves!
This isn't the first time that he's braved to shave! Yes, that's right, we have not one, but two photos of Dr.Phil without his manly mustache and we can barely contain our excitement!
This is the Dr. Phil that we all know and love.
And he actually is a doctor.
Dr. Phil had always wanted to be a psychologist.
But his future could have turned out very differently.
@chriscote954 Tulsa middle linebacker....Dr. Phil! https://t.co/oTcwkfSA9S— GOLICH AND GRINGO🧢 (@GOLICH AND GRINGO🧢)1535651157.0
He started out hosting a self-improvement seminar with his father and a lady from Texas called Thelma Box."Pathways" claimed to be "experience-based training which allows individuals to achieve and create their own results." Seems a little suspect to us, but we know some people swear by these life-affirming seminars.
Phil sneakily sold his share of Pathways for a cool $325,000.Not too shabby for someone who is just starting off in their career! But he "forgot" to mention to both his father and long-term business partner Thelma that he was selling up. Naughty Dr. Phil!
The real turning point in his life happened in 1995 when he met Oprah Winfrey.
And the rest, as they say, is history.McGraw proved to be immensely popular with both her guests and her viewers and so Oprah invited him to be her show's resident Relationship and Life Strategy Expert - whatever that is, exactly! Basically, he helped people sort out their sh*t.
Then he decided that he should share his knowledge a little more comprehensively.
Went through Dr Phil's audio book version of Life Strategies last week. His diplomacy skills were as one would expe… https://t.co/Af6rasRWu7— Jennifer (Jennloop) Lindroos (@Jennifer (Jennloop) Lindroos)1545256292.0
In 2002, the iconic Dr. Phil TV show was created and here he is in action.Phillip formed his own production company and with the help of Oprah's Harpo Studios, he was able to launch his very own television show. And it quickly became a massive success.
But boy, has he had to deal with some serious issues over the years.Like this father who admitted to enjoying hitting his daughter. Dr. Phil sat in disbelief with this couple but, thankfully, he managed to pull it together and give them some much needed sound advice on how to deal with their daughter. We don't think that we would have been so calm in that situation.
And there was this girl who shared her desire to "rip people's heads off"...How Dr. Phil managed to remain so cool, we don't know. High school bullies can be the worst but Dr. Phil earnestly tries to help her explore her anger issues. This is the side of Dr. Phil that we love.
Despite his success, there was a time in which Dr.Phil decided to branch out and try his hand at something a bit different.He entered the world of weight loss. Dr. Phil created a range of shakes, supplements, and energy bars called 'Shape It Up, Woo, Woo!'. He even wrote a weight loss book! We literally cannot imagine that Dr. Phil has ever said "Woo, Woo", ever, but who are we to question their marketing strategy?
But many were unconvinced about Dr. Phil's credentials in the weight loss industry.
Not that this would have had much effect on his finances.Between 2014 and 2015, Dr. Phil made an estimated $70 million, and by 2017 this had risen to around $79 million for that financial year. He's definitely starting to look a bit more handsome to us now. Just check out his mansion!
We had a shock when we saw Dr Phil's recent Instagram post.But, it turns out, he's done something similar in the past! Back in 2010, after forty years of having a mustache, Dr Phil shaved his mustache off during The Oprah Winfrey Show and the result was dramatic, to say the least. Without being mean, he definitely looks a little more creepy without it. But just wait until you see his latest transformation. It's somehow even worse!
Looks aside, though, according to his first wife, McGraw was not necessarily the ideal husband.

Some people really think that the Dr. Phil that we see on TV is all just an act.
He has been known to be, shall we say, be a little mean with his guests.This girl may not be perfect, but we don't think she deserved this brutal shutdown by Dr. Phil. Good for ratings. Bad for his image. What do you think?
And don't even get us started on some of his Tweets.
Last night, Dr. Phil sent out a quickly deleted tweet about sexual violence and alcohol. “If a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her?— Miranda (@Miranda)1377118626.0
