Who Is Roger Mathews? 5 Things to Know About JWOWW’s Fiancé
Ever since Wetpaint Entertainment broke the news about JWOWW's engagement to longtime beau, Roger Mathews, we've been over the moon with excitement about her upcoming nuptials. But since Roger isn’t quite as famous as his Jersey Shore fiancée, we decided to educate everyone on our favorite oversized gorilla. Here are five things to know about Roger.
1. He’s a truck driver Roger earns his living as a teamster (union truck driver) for hazmat tankers. We don’t know a ton about what that involves — our specialties are reality stars and celebrities — but it sure sounds manly! It’s nice to know that JWOWW settled down with a good blue-collar guy, and a union man to boot!
2. He’s 10 years older than JWOWW Although you wouldn’t know it by looking at him, Roger is actually 37 years old! That makes him 10 years older than our girl JWOWW, and the oldest man out of the Jersey Shore crowd. (The second oldest would by Pauly D, who is 32.)
4. He’s STD-free While he joked about having chlamydia “four times” during an episode of Snooki & JWOWW, this big guy is 100% STD-free. “No, I never had chlamydia,” Roger tweeted back in August. “I’m a real wise ass.”
5. He’s a Mainer While Roger lives in New Jersey with JWOWW, he actually grew up in Cherryfield, Maine. That means that the cold winters in New Jersey are nothing compared to the chilly weather he has experienced. And as we saw on Snooki & JWOWW this season, he knows how to catch all sorts of seafood — even mud-buried clams!
