Wayne, before

The final makeunder candidate is a man who, Carson says, suffers from a common syndrome that only affects men—Rip Van Winkle Syndrome.

"[These men] forget about their clothes for 40 years, and they're like: 'I look amazing. It's what I wore in high school,'" he says. "I'm like, 'That was three decades ago.' So go shopping every presidential election or something."

The man in question is Wayne, a husband and father from Taylor, Michigan. Patty, Wayne's wife, turned him in because she says he's stuck in the '80s. In his closet, Patty finds 20 tie-dyed T-shirts with their sleeves cut off.

Wayne dons these outdated duds at night, when he performs with his band. "He's a software developer by day, and he's a rock 'n' roller at night," Patty says.
