Jeremy Jackson is an actor and singer with an estimated net worth of $200 thousand. The Californian-born heartthrob acquired his net worth largely from his role in Baywatch.
From the age of seven, the 30 year old's first assignment was a commercial for Mattel Cars. He went on to do other commercials and appeared on the daytime show Santa Barbara. Jackson also appeared in The Wonder Years and Thunder Alley and appeared in feature films, including The Balkin Trail (with is old buddy David Hasselhoff).
In the 90's Jackson was also a successful pop star and was very popular in Europe and the United States. At the age of thirteen, he recorded first album under Hasselhoff's record label, Hasselhits. The first album did relatively well, as his single (You Can Run), reached number four in Holland and was closely followed by a top ten hit with another single, French Kiss. Jackson went on to produce several albums including Number One (1994) and Always (1995).
In 1991, Jackson landed his most memorable role as the lovable Hobie Buchannon in Baywatch, replacing actor Brandon Call. During his time on Baywatch, Jackson became addicted to drugs and alcohol, which led to his departure from show in 1999. It was his arrest in a drug raid that made Jackson kick his addiction and remain clean for a decade.
However the former child star gave into another addiction: this time it was steroids. In 2011, Jackson appeared on VH1's reality show, Celebrity Rehab With Dr Drew in a bid to address the reason for the new addiction. Jackson also appeared in VH1's Confessions of a Teen Idol, where he tried to jump start his career. In one episode, he revealed that he beat Leonardo DiCaprio to the role of Hobie Buchannon in Baywatch.
In August 2011, the face of Ed Hardy is set to become a member of the Chippendales dance troupe in Las Vegas. Jackson will be replacing 98 degrees singer Jeff Timmons. If all goes well, this will be Jackson's first job since Celebrity Rehab With Dr Drew.
