Justin Hall left a memorable impression on viewers during his Season 15 stint, and it wasn’t a good one.

However, a lot of time has passed since then, and many things have changed.

Justin got some surprising news after leaving the show, and he opened up online about his Klinefelter Syndrome diagnosis–which might shed light on his behavior.

He got criticized for being too emotional during his marriage to Alexis, as he cried multiple times during some tense moments with his then-wife.

Those weren’t the only times Justin shed a tear or two. When he appeared on the MAFS Aftershow to discuss some rocky moments in his relationship, he cried again.

However, his then-undiagnosed condition had a lot to do with that! Since learning about the genetic disorder, the 34-year-old has been getting treatment and is already seeing a “significant change.”

MAFS star Justin Hall talks about being diagnosed with Klinefelter Syndrome

Justin recently confessed on Instagram that after leaving MAFS he learned that he was born with the genetic disorder, Klinefelter Syndrome.

In the video, he explained that he’s “a male born with 47 chromosomes instead of 46…XXY is what I am instead of XY.”

Justin revealed that he’s been on treatment for “seven months now, and a significant change that I have noticed is that I am no longer as emotional as I used to be.”

The digital marketing specialist explained that these days, even when something is emotionally difficult, his body does not allow him to cry.

Justin said his testosterone levels are now in the “100 range” and his body has been changing as well and he now can build muscle.

“Living with XXY can present unique challenges. My experience has been both rewarding and frustrating,” he admitted.
