Temptation Island single Jack Allen may not have been asked out on a date yet, but he certainly grabbed the ladies' attention last week -- and we're not just talking about on the show. Viewers across social media responded to Jack's sweet poem in the Mountain Villa talent show that made Nicole cry. So, when he's not dropping heart-melting verse, what's Jack Allen all about? We hit up the Massachusetts-based business owner and freelance writer with 20 questions -- including topics of his past relationships, thoughts on the show, and what it feels like to be compared to a certain boy wizard. [Warning: Jack is very funny...]
How long was your longest relationship?
My longest relationship was on and off for about five years.
How does it feel to be compared to a boy wizard?
It would feel a lot better if Hogwarts would just return my letters. I’m running out of owls.
What movie makes you cry?
Honestly, I cry to more movies than I’d like to admit, and they’re mostly animated. But hey, if the emotion is there then I follow suit.
What song gets you moving on the dance floor?
"Nancy Mulligan" by Ed Sheeran. Otherwise I’m probably listening to 6ix9ine if we’re being honest.
What is the best gift you've ever received?
LOVE AND AFFECTION BUT THEY TOOK IT BACK.
What is your greatest indulgence?
Chocolate-covered espresso beans. The problem is I eat them at night when I don’t need the energy then I run out by the morning. It’s a toxic cycle.
What’s your number-one fitness tip?
Just stop being lazy and go to the gym.
What is your go-to karaoke song?
I’ve never sang karaoke, but one day I dream of meeting a girl who’ll sing "A Whole New World" with me from Aladdin. That or "Breaking Free" from High School Musical. What’s the point of dating someone if you can’t break into duet?
What is on your nightstand?
Two books, a lamp, and a picture of my grandfather.
What’s been your favorite moment to watch on the show so far?
I hate to sound conceited but my favorite moment has been the talent show. I watch the new episodes with my friends so when I came onscreen the room exploded. I live for their reactions.
What’s your favorite account to follow on Instagram?
If I told you what I looked at on the internet I would’ve never made it on the show.
Who would you want to do a love scene with if you were in a movie?
Gal Gadot. She just seems so damn wholesome. Plus I imagine sleeping with Wonder Woman is like having sex with a gun to your head. Love that element of danger.
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
My first (and worst) job was at a fish market. 14 years old, 12-hour shifts, 60 hours a week, seven dollars an hour. I smelled like fish but at least I had integrity.
What is on your bookshelf?
Didn’t they tell you I’m the writer? There’s not enough space on the page for me to answer that question.
Would you go on Temptation Island if you were part of a couple?
That depends, do I want my relationship to last? If so ,then it’s gonna’ be a 'no' from me, dawg.
What’s the most worn item in your wardrobe?
I have this one fancy jacket I wear when I really want to impress people. The problem is I always want to impress people. I should've worn it for date selection.
What’s the best celebrity impression you can do?
Jack from Temptation Island.
What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
Either aliens or the melting temperature of steel beams.
What was the last gift you gave someone?
My presence is a present. That being said… I got my sister a PS4.
What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
When I was 11 years old, a large bearded man broke into my home and told me I was a wizard. It changed everything.
