Jon’s former reality star life included luxury vacations, lucrative personal appearances, and even partying like a rock star after his divorce from Kate.
Today, Jon lives a completely different lifestyle, one of solitude. In the interview, Jon told Brooke Anderson he currently lives in a house in the woods with no cable or internet. He also revealed that although he's changed careers, he’s not struggling to pay the bills as some reports have claimed.
“They said it because I’m waiting tables,” he explained. “Which is really disgusting to think that because you wait tables, or because you have different things or don’t have an 8 to 5 job, you’re struggling to make ends meet.”
When asked if he’s had trouble trying to find a job, Jon said it was “next to near impossible” for him to find work. He said he is excited about his new job, but admitted to being hesitant because he didn’t know how he would be received by the public.
“At first I was nervous because I was like, ‘How are people going to react,’” he explained. “But then I’m thinking, ‘Well it’s fun and I get to talk to people.”
Jon said he has no regrets about being on the show or having to transition to a more simple life. “I don’t regret anything, because you learn from your mistakes,” he said. “And that’s what makes you who you are today.”
