If you are always on the internet as we all are, then you must have come across many speculations about Greg Gumbel's weight loss. His weight loss is currently trending on the net. Apparently, a word on the street has had a multiplier effect and has found its way to social media.

This whole thing started when a small number of people spotted Greg in flesh and couldn't help but notice how very different he looked owing all to the weight that he lost which was unmissable as per their accounts.

People always unmindfully associated his loud and boisterous voice with his healthy body. But now that there are these accounts of his weight loss, people probably can't imagine him the same way. When they think of him, they likely visualize a frail-looking man with a weak voice.

His loud and clear voice on the sports field, which held the sole attention of every sports lover, was replaced by his weight loss in getting more engagement on the media.

After a few of those accounts of fans meeting him in person and observing that he had lost a considerable amount of weight had surfaced on the internet, they took no precaution while giving winds to those rumors. And not long after, there were other speculations about him on the internet.

Fans wanted to know if Greg Gumbel's extreme weight loss was due to some kind of sickness he had. Does he have any illness or has he recently faced any issues in his health that he has yet not shared with the general public?

Despite all those rumors and assumptions about him floating around on the web, Greg Gumbel himself has not addressed any of those. He has chosen to keep strictly silent about it. So, no substantiated information regarding his health situation has yet been uncovered.

And if he truly lost so much weight as to warrant that kind of sickness assumption is also not known. So far, all this fuss about Greg Gumbel's weight loss and the reason for it being some grave disease seems very scary but no acknowledgment of it from himself and how no reputable and verified tabloids have not yet picked up on those rumors and all of it being limited to gossip forums only make it seem like an unwarranted hoax.

So, all those who want to know if Greg's fine has to wait to hear from Greg himself.
