They Kept Their Record Deal a Secret From the Church
Getting signed to a label when you're a teenager is so exciting you'd probably want to shout it from the rooftops, but the Jo Bros had to keep their record deal a secret. At the time, their father was the pastor of their local church, and thus, there was a certain image the pastor's family had to uphold. "We were signed to a secular label, and we weren't making a Christian album," Kevin said.
When they were picked up by Disney, the church's parishioners who were once like family judged them for singing about girls. Eventually, the pressure was too much, and Paul Kevin Sr. was forced to resign his position at the church. In the blink of an eye, they lost their whole community.
They Got Booed by Senior Citizens
The Jo Bros embarked on a mall tour and got booed by senior citizens. Honestly, there's nothing more to it. How rude. They started the year getting booed by senior citizens and ended the year with 50 thousand fans crowding Times Square to celebrate their album release. The boys called the moment "validating" and said they were glad to see their family get to the other side.
Kevin Could Finally Score a Date
After the Jonas Brothers became a household name, Kevin said he was finally able to score a date. However, despite all his clout, his still couldn't play it cool when chatting with his then-squeeze and now wife, Danielle. The most amazing thing about this is that Joe and Nick predicted that Danielle would become his "future wife."
Joe Was Only Supposed to Star in "Camp Rock"
Joe was the only one cast on "Camp Rock," but their father didn't think it was wise to break-up the band during their come-up so he called the President of Disney to ask if they'd cast all three Jonas brothers instead. If you've watched the iconic Disney film, you know that the Prez said "sure thing, Papa J."
A Drinking Game is Responsible for Their Reunion
After six or seven years of not spending any quality time together, the brothers decided to reconnect and travel the world. They met up in Australia, which Joe calls his second home, and decided to address the elephant in the room, i.e., all the resentment surrounding the band's break-up. To break the ice, they opted for a drinking game which now gets credit for the reunion of the ages.
Nick Hated Season 2 of 'Jonas'
During said drinking game, Nick revealed that his biggest regret was doing Season 2 of Jonas. He recalls the decision "stunted their growth." All three of them agreed that the show was not good and not on "brand" as they were becoming adults, yet the content was catered to 8 to 11-year-olds.
Starring on the Disney Channel show made people think they were "uncool" and they became a joke as the media referred to them as "God's favorite virgins." Who can forget the now-infamous purity rings? "We had all this success, and that's the only thing we could hear or focus on, was things that people were saying about us," Kevin said.
