Couple Married For 49 Years Gets Makeover, Can’t Recognize Each Other At Reveal


Jo and Kevin Taylor were just 14 and 16 years old, respectively, when they met in 1967 — and the teenage sweethearts have been together ever since.

Fast forward nearly half a century and the couple are still in love as ever. They’ve been married for 49 years and have five children, 14 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. But while many things have changed in the decades since they’ve gotten together, one aspect of their relationship has stayed the same until now — their styles.

The grandparents love riding around in Kevin’s Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and as such, sported a biker aesthetic complete with baggy clothes, long locks,  and a scraggly beard on Kevin’s part.

But when asked by the Today Show’s Ambush Makeover team, Louis Licari and Jill Martin, if they’d like to try something new looks-wise, they were all for it.

After the team had worked their magic, Jo was amazed when she stepped in front of a mirror and saw how beautiful she looked.

“Oh my gosh! Are you kidding me? That’s not even me. Who is that?” she said upon her big reveal. “Oh, I look absolutely gorgeous!”

But she was even more stunned when she saw Kevin for the first time after his makeover. She said she’d been trying to convince him to cut his beard for 20 years, and while he still had one, it was much shorter than she (or Kevin) was used to.

“Who are you?” said Jo as soon as she saw her husband. “I can’t believe it! You’re so handsome!”
