Jeff Lewis is known for his hilarious idiosyncrasies. We’ve seen his anal knack for perfection in his professional life on Flipping Out and Interior Therapy, respectfully. And we’ve also seen his knack for playing practical jokes on those closest to him. From his partner Gage Edward, to his executive assistant Jenni Pulos, to his maid Zoila Chavez, no one in Jeff’s life is off limits. And, as it turns out, even perfect strangers aren’t safe from his hijinks.
Anyone who follows Jeff’s antics on social media knows that his favorite prank is photobombing people who are passed out in public. From airport terminals to parked cars, Jeff is often captured comically posing with completely random folks.
Urban Dictionary describes photobombing as, “Intentionally posing in other people's photos, for a later surprise. Usually people making funny faces in the background, without the knowledge of the main subjects of the photo.” With Jeff, it’s certainly the latter.
Here are our picks for the top 10 Jeff Lewis photobombs.
These sunglasses though:

A collegiate salute:
Good morning, sunshine!

There's no way that this is comfortable:
We caught up with Jeff yesterday on the red carpet at the NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Unfront and got the inside scoop on his not-so-secret obsession with photobombing.
"It’s my absolute favorite pastime," he reveals to the Daily Dish. "And I never thought it would be, but I travel so much for work that I spend a lot of time in airports and a lot of times you’re waiting for flights, flights get delayed, you want to get there early; what do you do to pass the time? Well, you take pictures with sleeping people is what you do."
So has he ever fallen victim to being 'bombed? "I was photographed once on a plane by Jenni," he admits. "I guess I deserve it, I mean I’ve taken pictures of hundreds of people that I do not know. It was going to come back around. It took a little while, but I knew it was going to come back around."
At least he's a good sport about it!
