Today, we talk about a rather forlorn figure, a guy who is neither a Hollywood superstar nor a TV serial actor. Well, he does feature in a TV series, but that is not s run-of-the-mill TV Show. Today, we take a look at TLC’s very own, Chris Jacobs. How he came to the top, when he realized he was gay and if he is married!!
Christopher "Chris" Jacobs, who was born on the January of 1970, is most famous for his current show, Overhaulin, which runs on TLC. Before making a big breakthrough in the show, the handsome TV personality made his name in the series, The Insider. While in the series, he also worked as a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight. Right now, he is working for NFL Network. His other appearances include shows like Chopper Live and Gold Rush Live, which both starred on Discovery Channel.
Born in Illinois, Chris Jacobs attended the New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois. He then went on to Cranbrook School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan before moving to California. There, he attended Whittier College where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in English. After his undergrads, he attended Western State University College of Law and was then admitted to the state bar of California.
Although not a household name in TV shows, he does have just pretty great shows in his resume. This includes appearances in television shows as well as cameos in some movies, which includes the likes of The X-Files, CSI, Touched by an Angel and Two and a Half Men. On November 22, 2009, he presented the live telecast of the Miss California USA pageant and got a lot of praise for his hosting. Jacobs left Entertainment Tonight after he realized he needed a change of direction. After his tenure at Entertainment Tonight, he became a weekend presenter for the NFL Network. Apart from this, he has also hosted Skywire Live on Discovery.com for the Discovery Channel.
Well, there are rumors that Jacobs is gay. Shockingly, none of these rumors have been verified. For instance, one source mentioned that Jacobs had indeed married (a woman) right after he finished college. But now, there have been speculations that he indeed is gay.
At the age of 41, we have no hard-fast evidence of his past dates, whether they were with boys or girls. So, it is hard to know the full truth, especially since he does not talk about personal life. Now, he does seem happy around both women and men. But since he has not yet married, there is a strong possibility that the actor may be gay.
Well, we have to ask Jacobs himself about his sexuality. If he is not gay, there are many girls who are attracted to him. And if he is, well, he will have no trouble going out on dates either ways. So, rumors about his marriage, divorce, dating, wife, girlfriend etc are probably false.
As for people who find him attractive, he posts a lot of shirtless photos on his Instagram account. His net worth is around a million dollars.
