Not long ago, everyone seemed to love Joe Jonas–Taylor Swift, Camilla Belle, Demi Lovato, Ashley Greene, plus, um . . . screaming girls everywhere. His charisma (along with that of his brothers!), coupled with charm and good looks (remember that hair?) sent the world “burnin’ up.” But it seems like the whole of the Jonas Brothers was greater than the sum of its parts.
Not that much time has passed, and you’d kind of figure a lot of girls (famous and regular types like you and me) would still love Joe Jonas, right? Not quite so much, if his solo record’s chart positions are any indication. Thankfully, the fact that the Jonas boys need to stay in the spotlight in preparation for their upcoming reunion album means you might actually have a chance to really love Joe Jonas. And we mean really. Like in person. Makey-outey love. (Don’t tell me the you from three years ago isn’t squealing with joy.)
Joe Jonas has gone from selling out stadiums, plastering his mug and those fierce brows on magazine covers, and making girls shriek, cry, and faint at the sight of him to . . . appearing on The Choice, a reality dating show for B- and C-list celebs where he’ll go from shacking up with hotties like Taylor Swift to letting everyday fans compete for his (and uh, The Situation’s) affection. The show is sort of a combination of The Voice, complete with spinning chairs, and Blind Date. (You can learn more about it and the rest of its stars here!)
Sounds like a pretty big fall for this guy. (Could you picture Justin Bieber or One Direction doing that?!) Remember, this is the guy who, along with his brothers (one of whom, Kevin, is getting his own reality show), sold out arenas and made purity rings a thing. Other Disney stars are still superfamous–Selena Gomez and Joe’s ex Demi are still selling out world tours, and Miley Cyrus is still considered A-list and dates Liam Hemsworth (jealous!). What happened?!
We still think if he wanted to get a date that badly, Joe Jonas wouldn’t have that much difficulty–even if he’s not topping the charts anymore, he’s still young, good looking, and loaded… Though perhaps his playboy rep is catching up with him in the Hollywood scene!
On the bright side, Joe Jonas is one of the most sought-after male celebs on the show. So even though you have a shot, if you love Joe Jonas, you better strike while the iron (if not the starpower) is hot.
