An expert in weight loss, Jessie Pavelka is an American fitness guru/model-turned-reality telly host. He got thrust to the limelight following his appearances on DietTribe, Obese: A Year To Save My Life and Fat: The Fight Of My Life.
Before building a passion for fitness, he was a star college football athlete at the University of North Texas. The Calallen High School Alum pivoted to bodybuilding/fitness once he hit his 20s.
Following the move to LA and eventually to Long Beach California, Jessie's career as a fitness model took off. In a matter of six months, he appeared on the covers of three magazines.
Despite having second thoughts early on, the former DietTribe star eventually agreed to try his luck as a reality television host. Seeing how impactful his job could be in the lives of his TV clients, his skepticism dissipated.
