The disgusting reason nobles wore powdered wigs

You may be shocked at what the former Fear Factor host has to say about wigs.

(INTELLIHUB) — Once upon a time, a noble person contracted syphilis which caused them to lose the hair and skin on top of their head which in turn prompted them to wear a wig and powder it, according to the former host of the hit T.V. game show Fear Factor.

“Syphilis was also responsible for powdered wigs,” host of the Joe Rogan Experience Joe Rogan himself explained during a Tuesday podcast. “…some noble person got syphilis started wearing a wig and when they started wearing wigs other people started emulating them because they were celebrities of the kingdom.”
