Jax Taylor Now Has a Business Empire of His Own — Inside His Many Ventures

Jax Taylor keeps busy with an impressive array of businesses.

By Joe Dziemianowicz

When the job description calls for someone who can beam charisma and stir up drama, Jax Taylor is the guy for the gig. He did it tirelessly on Vanderpump Rules, and when The Valley airs in the spring on Bravo, we’ll surely see Jax do exactly that again.

How to Watch

Watch The Valley on Bravo Tuesdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

The new show offers a slice of life in the Valley neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, as seen through five couples and two friends. The 12 members of the cast include Jax and his wife, Brittany CartwrightKristen Doute and her boyfriend, Luke Broderick; plus a fab group of others.

We’re looking forward to seeing what Jax, now a dad with a young son, gets up to. Until then, it’s a perfect time to check out what Jax is doing work-wise these days.

What does Jax Taylor do for a job?

Jax Taylor doesn't just do television. The former bartender also has a podcast, several endorsement deals and partnerships, and a bar of his own now.

Before gaining fame on Vanderpump Rules, Jax worked in an array of roles. He started as a model and later became a bartender.

Jax’s uncanny ability to shake things up was obvious during his eight-season tenure on the series, beginning in 2013. He’s never left reality television behind since then. In the fall, he appeared on the reality competition House of Villains. (He was the first player to get the boot.)

Are Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright Breaking Up? Jax's Heated Response to the Rumors

Besides his TV roles, his business enterprises show him to be a Jax of all trades across various industries: hospitality, media, and entertainment.

While SUR is in his rearview, Jax is still in the food-and-drinks biz — from the ownership side now. Last fall, he became co-owner of his own bar, dubbed Jax's Studio City.

The easygoing L.A.-area sports bar’s menu features sliders, BBQ chicken, and warm pretzels with Mamaw’s beer cheese, plus specialty drinks including The Jax (Tito’s vodka on the rocks).

On Instagram, where Jax posts regularly about his family, more of his professional endeavors can be found. They include paid partnerships with a diverse array of businesses. Two target different types of baldness: on heads and in lawns.

Jax's side hustle on Cameo, an online messaging service, has also proven to be lucrative. He currently charges $9 for a message and $121 for a video. It all adds up! On House of Villains, Jax said he's raked in about $450,000 on Cameo, Business Insider reported.

But you don't have to just turn to social media or buy a Cameo to hear more from Jax. These days, he’s using his voice for his podcast with his wife, called When Reality Hits with Jax and Brittany.  The podcast promises to take listeners inside the host couple’s “crazy lives” as they gab about parenthood, marriage, family, friendship, and reality TV.

Of course, we'll get to find out more about Jax's endeavors, both personal and professional, when he returns to television this spring. Stay tuned for more Jax and Brittany — and the whole cast — when The Valley premieres on Bravo in Spring 2024.
