Chris Jacobs is a host and television personality. Chris was born and raised in the north suburbs of Chicago. After passing the 1995 California Bar Exam on his first try, his education was complete. It was then that he decided to pursue his dream of making it in the entertainment industry. For eight years he achieved moderate success in the Hollywood, finding roles in numerous movies and television shows as well as scores of commercials.
