Issue #8 featured an interview with Pontius and saw his first public appearance in the nude, when he was still under the legal age of 18. In Issue #9, he wrote an article titled "18 Ways To Be An Asshole".

After parting ways with Big Brother, he drifted from job to job, including stints at Jamba Juice and working as a temp for Charles Schwab. After several months, he returned to the magazine with an article titled, "Life After Big Brother", telling of his misadventures in the 9 to 5 world. At some point, as revealed by an episode of MTV Cribs, Pontius had gotten as far as to live in a Toyota Tacoma pick-up truck. He joined Big Brother editor Jeff Tremaine and contributor Johnny Knoxville with the Jackass crew in 2000.

Public nudity Edit


One Of Pontius' Famous Stunts (Party Boy) From Jackass: The Game

Pontius' trademark style consists of either a male pouch thong and a bow tie, or a headband and belt (being otherwise nude), which he attributes to a favorite pastime as a kid where he and his brother would play "naked natives," scaring houseguests wearing nothing but a belt. Pontius has used the naked native motif to run alongside animals in Wildboyz. He also appears nude in numerous Jackass stunts, including "Playgirl Pontius", in which he poses in various positions for photographs as an audition for Playgirl magazine completely naked. One of the said photos also hangs in director Jeff Tremaine's office, directly behind his desk. It was put up by Pontius himself, during the filming of the first Jackass film in 2002.

Personal lifeEdit

Pontius was married to Claire Nolan on October 29, 2004 and separated as of 2009. He is a vegetarian.
