Jessi Cruickshank is a "crafty queen."
On Thursday, the 39-year-old Canadian TV personality shared an Instagram Reel with her followers, addressing comments she has received about her abs in a recent promo photo.
In the video, she explains the reason for her taut midsection in the promotional shots for her new podcast "Phone A Friend" isn't Photoshop or Facetune — but good, old-fashioned duct tape.
"A lot of you have been commenting on my abs in my podcast artwork, and I just want to go on record and say, I didn't use Photoshop or Facetune to look like this. I used duct tape," she admitted, adding a behind-the-scenes clip of herself dancing with duct tape cinching her waist.
"And that's a hot tip for your next semi-nude photoshoot," Cruickshank concluded before giving a thumbs up.
"Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s duct tape," she captioned the post for her more than 165,000 followers.
In the comments, fans praised Cruickshank for her "realness."
"Thanks for being transparent!" one Instagram user wrote.
Another added: "Thank you for sharing the realness!"
"The realness," someone else wrote alongside a laughing emoji.
"I love your honesty. This is so funny! Great tip," a fan shared.
This isn't the first time Cruickshank has garnered applause for keeping it real on social media. In June, the mom-of-three shared a "hilarious" video, giving fans a glimpse of what it's like to be alone with her three children while her husband, Evan Gatica, is away for the weekend. The pair share twin boys, 5, and another son who they welcomed in 2021.
"My husband is away for the weekend so I'm alone with three kids, and you know what? Everything is fine," she says in an Instagram video before segueing to chaotic footage of her children pulling her hair, crying, putting a pot lid on her face and more. While hilariously melting down, she repeats "It's fine," and "I'm fine."
"It's fine. Everything is fine," she doubled down in the caption.
