It’s certainly got us curious.

He Studied Political Science at the University of Arizona

Well, technically he got into the University of Arizona on a cheerleading scholarship but technically he majored in Political Science.

However, he lost his scholarship and his place at the University after missing class too many times because…. he was watching re-runs of The Golden Girls.

We’ve all been, there?

Jonathan recently dated the Australian rugby player Wilco Froneman.

However, the pair split in December 2018.
