Tim “Sharky” Ward: An Unrecognizable Former Mobster Reveals the Secret to His Transformation

Tim “Sharky” Ward has opened up about his transformation after looking almost unrecognizable in a recent photo shared on TikTok.

Tim “Sharky” Ward, a former Gold Coast club owner who fled Queensland for Thailand in 2009, has opened up about his transformation after looking almost unrecognizable in a recent photo shared on TikTok.

Ward’s dramatic weight loss was revealed upon his return to the Gold Coast, a decision which appears to have been prompted by the pandemic.

Ward became known as the “Shark of Pattaya” and developed a cult following among locals.

Addressing the Bulletin of the Côte d’OrWard said his new found love for motorcycles, coupled with intermittent fasting, helped him reduce his weight significantly.

“I got into intermittent fasting because it’s good for you,” Ward said,

“I carry too much weight to do it properly. You can’t weigh 120kg and go out into the bush on a bike – you ride for about a kilometer and then turn off.

“I want to reach 110 kg but I can’t because of my big Kiwi bones.”

Ward said he was definitely leaving his old Glitter Strip lifestyle behind.

“I will never be a part of this again,” he said.

“It used to be part of my life, but it’s gone now – I just want to relax, ride my mountain bike and relax.”

He amassed significant wealth at various times in his life, including at one point owning three Lamborghinis. It’s been an incredible climb to fortune since his early days as an orphan in New Zealand.

This was partly due to the extreme interest rates he was known to charge on his loans – in some cases up to 200%.

According to reports, Ward traveled to Thailand after becoming aware of an Australian Federal Police investigation into his activities.

Ward openly admitted to having slept with sex workers in Thailand and said he liked how easy it was to pay off the police on the island paradise.

“I don’t need to wear a shirt. I don’t have to play by the rules and if I break the rules I just pay,” he previously said.

The former mobster also shared intermittent updates on his Facebook page, which has 60,000 followers.

“I was penniless and I was a multi-millionaire. The happy place is definitely somewhere in between,” he said.
