The 32-year-old has become quite the face of climate change, and his new show sees him traveling around the world to communities that are trying to change the planet for the better. But it isn't the educational content that's catching fans eyes, it's his new rugged dad appearance.

Sporting an untamed beard and untoned "dad bod", people across the globe are swooning over seeing a different side to him.

From Iceland, to France, to London, and elsewhere, the Greatest Showman actor and wellness expert Darin Olien have got everyone hooked since the show premiered on July 10.

Here are the best reactions...brace yourselves.

So we can all unanimously agree that he looks better than ever, right?

Well it's good news, because it looks like the new look could be staying - and Zac has even admitted that he's leaving the perfectly preened abs he's known for, firmly behind.

Speaking on YouTube talk show, Hot Ones, the fitness fanatic said: "It was a really important time to do Baywatch because I realised that when I was done with that movie, I don't ever want to be in that good of shape again. Really. It was so hard".

He added during an interview with Ellen, "For guys, that's unrealistic. I'm telling you. I got very big and buff for that movie, but I don't want people to think that's the best way to be. Like, be your size."

Phew. If we weren't eco warriors before, we certainly are now. Season 2, please?
