Jackson (27) & Monica (24)
When/where did you meet?
He said: We met in April 2000. I owned a hair salon in a strip mall. She worked three stores down at a frame store. I would pass by every day, but never went in. When I finally had a picture to frame, I went in her store. When I came back to pick it up, she asked me out! I asked her how old she was because she looked like she was maybe 16! She was actually 21 and so we decided to go out from there.
She said: I was working at a framing shop and he worked in the same strip mall. We had been checking each other out for a while and one day Jackson finally came in to get something framed. I asked him out, and he actually carded me because he thought I was too young.
Describe your earliest memory of your partner:
He said: Before the day I went into her store, I had actually met her once before. She used to work at a beauty supply store, and because I own a salon I was in there all the time. I remember going back to the salon one day and saying to the guys, "Man, have you guys seen the girl that works at the beauty supply store?
She said: I remember him always playing Frisbee Golf. As we started dating he played less and less even though it was his favorite sport. My friends would tell me "He must really like you if he is giving up Frisbee Golf."
Describe your first date:
He said: I threw a client appreciation party at my salon and invited her as my date.
She said: We went to a Jackie Chan movie and out to dinner.
How did you first apply for Fear Factor: Couples?
He said: I have been trying to get on Fear Factor since the first season. Monica heard Fear Factor was doing a Casting Call in Austin. She was called back for an interview and did not know how to get there. I drove her to the callback interview and the Casting Directors invited me into the interview with Monica.
She said: I always go to Fearfactor.com to see what the show is going to be about that week. I saw in March on the website that there was a casting bus tour coming to Austin. I talked to Jackson about it so we camped out the night before the open call. We were fourth in line.
Why do you think you were chosen to be on Fear Factor: Couples?
He said: Because Monica is hot. I was pretty much along for the ride.
She said: We were outstanding, spoke the truth, and have great personalities. People can see our connection
What is your favorite toy?
He said: My car. It is a Harley Davidson truck.
She said: My dog, Rocky. He is a Yorkie.
