If you’ve been watching Jeremy on The Vampire Diaries since Season 1, you’ve probably noticed he went from forlorn emo teen to tank top-wearing hottie. Steven R. McQueen tells TV Guide how the transformation happened.

“I’m only eating chicken and broccoli,” he jokes. “They have me training about five hours a day, kickboxing and weight lifting. It’s pretty intense.” But it’s so worth it, right? At least, it is for the viewers.

Since earning his hunter’s mark, Jer has definitely become a major player and integral part of the plot. And we’ve noticed Bonnie (Kat Graham) noticing. “Bonnie and Jeremy have some unfinished business,” Steven agrees.

Do you think it’s time Bonnie got over the whole “You kissed a ghost” thing?
