Jay Starrett may have started as just another hunk in the Millennials tribe, but he’s proven to be so much more than that — don’t let that grin fool you! Get to know the 27-year-old who made it to the finals on ‘Survivor!’
Here are some things you may not know about Jay (real name, Justin).
Like Adam, his mother is the reason he fights so hard.
Jay reveled on the show that his mother has had 10 brain aneurisms and has received surgical care for six of them. “She wakes up every day smiling and not only motivates and inspires me, but everyone she comes in contact with. I am truly blessed,” he said.
Jay is a real estate agent.
Justin currently lives in Fort Lauderdale, FL., where he works as a real estate agent — and he must be pretty good at it. He’s proud to say he bought his own home at 25! Impressive.
He loves to dance.
That’s right, in addition to skim boarding and fishing, one of Jay’s loves is dancing — he admitted when he was cast that he always has his iPod with him for that reason!
He knows he can flirt and isn’t afraid to use it — but he’s not at all stupid.
“I’m a flirtatious, outgoing, good-looking guy who is not afraid to work hard and make big moves,” he said when he was cast. However, let’s put emphasis on the “work hard” part. We can’t forget that earlier in the game he aligned with a showmance and even though they both were sent home, he pulled through; they may not have made the smart choices, but it just showed how strong he was in the long run.
He’s a strong competitor and keeps his word.
With two immunity wins under his belt, he also took home the biggest reward ever: the loved ones visit. When he got to choose who also got that opportunity, he picked Will since he made him a promise in the beginning, and Sunday, since she had made him a promise first. And, even though he didn’t get along with Adam — and at the time he didn’t even know about Adam’s mother — he still gave it to him since he didn’t use his steal. Talk about respect.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Jay could win it all?
