Interesting Facts About Jesse Palmer

Well, many of his fans already know what we have said above about the man Jesse Palmer. Now, here are what you certainly don’t know about him:

His Dad Played Professional Football

The former quarterback was born as Jesse James Palmer on October 5, 1978, in Canada where he was also raised by his parents Susan and Bill Palmer in Nepean, a suburb of Ottawa. His father Bill played professional football for the now-defunct Ottawa Rough Riders. As for his mother, she first worked as a model before she established the modeling agency International Top Models (now known as ITM). So, we now know where Jesse Palmer got both his footballing gene and his penchant for entertainment.

Jesse Palmer Graduated With Two College Degrees At Once

Jesse was deep into college football in his days at the University of Florida as earlier hinted on. Yet, that did not reduce his academic attainments. Instead, it appears that his sporting activities even spurred him to greater academic heights because, by the time he was graduating in 2001, he had acquired two degrees: a B.A in liberal arts and a B.Sc in marketing.

He Was Already A Fan Of Daily Mail Before He Started Working For The Outfit

In August 2017, Jesse palmer signed to become the host of DailyMailTV, a daily syndicated series born out of the partnership between CBS and the London-based tabloid The Daily Mail. The program focuses on a variety of topics including science, business, entertainment, crime, and broadcasts out of New York.

At the time he started the job, he confessed how happy he was to have it.“I’m honored to be joining DailyMailTV,” Palmer said. “I’ve always been a huge fan of DailyMail.com, so to bring the world’s most-read English language newspaper website to television for the first time is an opportunity I couldn’t refuse.”

Palmer Was The First Professional Athlete To Appear On The Bachelor As Well As Its First Non-US Alum

Until recently, Jesse Palmer was yet to get hooked by any lady. This surprised many people considering that the handsome former athlete has all it takes to get married. Way back in 2004, he even appeared on the popular ABC dating reality show The Bachelor with Chris Harrison. Yet, he ended up not tying the knot with any of the ladies that showed interest in him.

But then, that’s not the major surprise we have for you there. Instead, we are letting you know that the charming TV host was the first professional athlete ever to have appeared on the show since its debut two years earlier. He was also the first non-US ‘bachelor’ on the show.

Indeed, it was on the show that he met Jessica Bowlin, then a 22-year old law student from California. He chose Jessica out of 25 other ladies who indicated interest to date him. However, the duo dated for only a few months and that was it: the fling ended.

After the break-up, Jesse Palmer was prompted to account for what led to it and all he said was that their next steps were totally different and led to totally different worlds. So, instead of proposing to the beautiful law student, he presented her with a one-way first-class ticket to New York. It might interest you to know that Jessica is now married and is a mother of two lovely kids.

Jesse Palmer Is Finally Engaged

Jesse Palmer rarely talks about his personal life and doesn’t seek public attention like most celebrities. You hardly ever find him in a romantic pose with any lady even on social media which has got the rumor mill busy with the speculation that he is gay. One funny online comment even pointed to his ‘Troy Aikman gay face look, big, strapping body type, and his stylish moves’ as the indications that the star was gay.
