While fans of Vanderpump Rules may have mixed opinions on resident bad boy Jax Taylor, there’s no denying that this guy is a looker. It’s those handsome features that have actually gotten the reality star into a bit of trouble in the show’s past two seasons — both in the workplace with his employer Lisa Vanderpump, and with his on-again-off-again girlfriend, Stassi Schroeder.
But Jax’s appearance hasn’t always been a negative — in fact, he’s had a pretty successful modeling career, doing work for brands like Abercrombie & Fitch, Tommy Hilfiger, and GQ. But the hunk’s biggest claim to fame might be the major Hollywood heartthrob that he roomed with during his early years as a model. Can you guess who that star was?
Wetpaint asked Viggle LIVE! users that very question during last night’s (January 6) episode of Vanderpump Rules, and an overwhelming number of viewers were right on point!
A little over 60 percent of voters guessed correctly that Jax shared digs with in-demand leading man Channing Tatum. The rest were split, with about 21 percent who thought that Jax lived with That Awkward Moment hottie Zac Efron (at 26, Zac is probably too young to have modeled alongside 30-something Jax), and 19 percent who believed that Jake Gyllenhaal was the actor in question.
So how did it come out that Jax knew the White House Down star from back in the day? During an episode of Watch What Happens Live in 2013, Jax spilled that he roomed with Channing during their male modeling days in New York City. "Did you guys hook up?," Stassi teased, adding, “My biggest fantasy!”
You can get your fill of Jax and the rest of the gang at SUR with all-new episodes of Vanderpump Rules on Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
