“When I started this show, I thought I was getting into the best shape of my life physically, but mentally I was somewhere else,” he said.
“I ended up discovering a whole lot of hidden things about myself. That was the only time in my life that I ever considered suicide.”
The YouTube series is set to premiere on November 8, 2021.
