Conrad Empson Has Been Trying to Grow a Beard for 24 Years: Here Are the Results

The Below Deck Mediterranean bosun has grown a bit of facial hair... but you might need a magnifying glass to see it.

Conrad Empson Has Babyface Problems

Conrad Empson has said it before: His life is plagued by baby-face problems. The 24-year-old bosun has a sweet, winsome look — and he's clearly easy on the eyes. But, even though Conrad has said that people don't always take him seriously because he looks so young, he's largely come to peace with the innocent vibe he gives off. Well, except for one thing. 

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck Mediterranean on Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

In the above clip, Conrad shared: "The worst part about having a baby-face is I actually want to grow a beard, and I can't. It just doesn't grow." But no one can say he's not determined, and the Below Deck Mediterranean pal is still trying to achieve his goal... even if he doesn't have huge results to show for it just yet. 

On November 27, Conrad shared a photo of his smiling, mostly smooth face. Admittedly, he had a bit of a 5 o'clock shadow, but not much more. In his caption, the English cutie joked: "24 and still can’t grow a beard."

Oh, well. It's something to work on for 25!
