Fans wonder if Miguel from Cobra Kai Season 4 got fat. Xolo Maridueña's weight gain is the topic of curiosity amongst Netflix viewers. Has the Cobra Kai cast actually gained weight? Let's find out.
Xolo Maridueña is quite simply broken. Or, more specifically, his Cobra Kai persona Miguel Diaz is. Season 3 begins with the actor and Los Angeles resident in a perilous state.
Miguel wound up in a serious state at a hospital after tumbling off a staircase at the hands of opponent Robby at the end of the previous season, being timidly nurtured back to wellness by his sluggish mentor Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). That's the end of the high kicks.
Maridueña, on the other hand, isn't going to sleep for long. After all, this is a Karate Kid spin-off show, so fighting is never far away. And the program displays no indications of stopping since it has quickly amassed an army of Netflix admirers.
Recently, Xolo Maridueña's character Miguel has gained notoriety amongst Cobra Kai viewers after he appeared looking fat in Season 4. Is there any truth to it? Stick with us to find out.
Some Fans Think Miguel Got Fat on Cobra Kai Season 4
A user took to the Cobra Kai subreddit to discuss the drastically changed physique of the Miguel Diaz actor Xolo Maridueña, following his visible weight gain. The person wrote:
Miguel Fat AF??? Anyone else notice Miguel got fat af? What gives?
However, not everybody was having fat claims.
A comment read:
He just got a little bulkier. If you think Miguel is fat, then I’d hate to think what you consider morbidly obese.
The second said:
Dude isn’t fat ???♂️
The third added,
His arms and overall body are jacked. He just has a bit of baby fat on his face
Another comment read,
Between Miguel's face filling out, Anthony's switch to Whopper Jr.'s, Hawk's haircut, and Robbie bulking up, I really need these guys to start wearing nametags.
Likewise, one fan stated,
Bro come on, my man got a little chubby, its enough for you to see the difference. But he ain't fat bruh, he's still in a healthy weight, just looks a bit different
One Redditor, finally, shed some light on the issue by stating he is not exactly fat but buff since he had to train for the Blue Beetle movie where he plays the main character.
Has Xolo Maridueña Actually Gained Weight?
It remains no secret that the Miguel Diaz star Xolo Maridueña has been trying to gain weight since Cobra Kai Season 2 because he was skinny. However, he ended up putting on more fat than muscle.
One user, meanwhile, refused to buy the notion the actor isn't fat, as suggested by many fans. The person wrote:
Everyone saying he isn’t fat must be American. He is definitely fatter than he was from the start. Every time he smiled he was making double chins and has no jawline anymore. Definitely gone fat
Another user suggested he clearly gained weight. They heard somewhere that he didn't own a fitness instructor during the COVID-19 pandemic. A young kid receiving all of his food from DC and no tutor to keep him on track with his workouts will do that to you.
It felt like it altered quite a bit about the series. They didn't give him as much screen time as a result, and he wasn't in as many battles. Fans feel he needs to get back into shape.
Cobra Kai Season 4 is streaming on Netflix.
