4. Had Several Hair Plug Procedures In New York

Buck revealed that he would fly back to New York whenever he had a break in his Fox Sports schedule for more hair plug procedures. “Broadcasting is a brutal, often unfair business, where looks are valued more than skill,” Buck adds. “I was worried that if I lost my hair, I would lose my job. O.K., that’s bull—. It was vanity. Pure vanity. I just told myself I was doing it for TV.”

5. Buck Lost His Voice In 2011 And Lied

Buck had undergone his eighth hair replacement procedure in the year 2011. Post the procedure was done and when he woke up, he found that he had lost his voice.

That time the situation was too embarrassing and at the same time scary for Buck, hence he landed up lying to everyone.  Buck said “I said it was a virus. I didn’t say it was an elective procedure to add hair to the front of my head. It was embarrassing,” he says in the book. “Any surgery done to improve one’s looks is not really something someone wants to talk about. So it’s very cathartic to get this out.”

6. Addiction Took Buck Over The hope Of Looking Younger

Buck went for numerous hair plug procedures and all was in the hopes of looking younger, with fuller, thicker hair.

The memoir discloses that though Buck would consider getting another treatment done, but he has not had hair replacement surgery since 2011. Buck Says “I’m a flawed, hard-working, hard-trying person. I didn’t write this book to change anyone else’s life,” he notes. “I wrote this book to be as open and as honest as I can be.”
