Former GFW Star on TMZ, Build Series NYC and Muscle & Fitness

CBS Big Brother Legend and IMPACT Wrestling 2x Champ Mr. PEC-Tacular Jessie Godderz had a very busy weekend in New York City while promoting his new hit series on AMAZON TV, TAINTED DREAMS.

First, he was spotted by TMZ and took part in a fun and exciting thumb wrestling challenge, resulting in the loser receiving a wedgie on National TV.

Next, Jessie was a special guest on Build Series NYC to promote TAINTED DREAMS (which was nominated for 5 Daytime Emmy Awards). Jessie portrays Leading Man Dylan Buckwald on the program. The series can be seen in 200+ Countries.

Jessie also took time to promote the mega-hit series (and his first family) CBS’ Big Brother during the interview. He has been a member of the CBS family for 9 years now.

Jessie also promoted his debut single THE GIRL IS WITH ME in which he teams up with Legendary, Multi-Platinum World Renowned Recording Artist Jeff Timmons from one of music’s most famous and successful groups 98 Degrees. The single is due out this summer.

During the interview, Jessie took the opportunity to put the show’s host (and good friend) Brian Balthazar in his patented ADONIS CRAB (naturally) at 17:41:

Jessie was interviewed alongside TAINTED DREAMS Creator and Executive Producer (and close friend) Sonia Blangiardo.

Sonia is a Multi-Emmy Award-Winning Producer/Director and TV Legend from ABC’s General Hospital, All My Children and One Life To Live, and CBS’ As The World Turns. She is currently Director of NBC’s Days Of Our Lives.

Brian Balthazar is also a World Renowned TV Legend, having helped launch NBC’s The Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda. He was also previously Co-Executive Producer of ABC’s The View, and now talks trends and hot topics on NBC’s The Today Show, CBS’ The Talk and the syndicated hit Wendy Williams, as well as oversees several HGTV shows.

While in New York City, Jessie also stopped by the Muscle & Fitness offices to see his good friend (and the Most Successful Magazine Publisher in the Country), Shawn Perine.

Shawn is the Editor in Chief of Men’s Fitness, Muscle & Fitness, Flex, and Muscle & Fitness Hers magazines.

While in the offices, Jessie was interviewed for the Muscle & Fitness Facebook page by Top Digital Editor Brian Nealon who is one of the most respected journalists in the field.
