98 Degrees' Jeff Timmons talks Men of The Strip and future plans (Includes interview)


98 Degrees' Jeff Timmons was gracious enough to chat with me about his reality television show "Men of The Strip," which premiered on the E! network and his future plans.
Along with Emmy-nominated choreographer and creative director Glenn Packard, Timmons owns "Men of The Strip" with Mike Foland.
It features such lead performers as Keith Webb, Kyle EfthemesJoel SajiunChris Boudreaux, "rookie" Derek North and veteran emcee Charles Dera.

The reality show garnered a favorable review from Digital Journal, since it does a solid job emphasizing such values as hard work, perseverance, reliability and teamwork.

After reflecting and looking back on the "Men of The Strip" journey that the owners and performers have embarked on, Timmons has noticed a great deal of growth and maturity. "The brand is exactly where myself and the owners envisioned it to be. We made it to the E! network, and 'Men of the Strip' is now known everywhere," he remarked.
On his proudest moments so far with "Men of The Strip," Timmons attested that he is extremely proud of the cast. "The guys are great entertainers, and have come a long way," he said.
On July 20, "Men of The Strip" aired in Latin America, which was an "amazing" feeling for Timmons as the brand owner. "To see these guys and their hard work pay off, and to have other parts of the world becoming aware of the brand, is incredible," he said.
Their plans were always to take this brand to the global level, and Timmons shared that they are on their way in making that goal into a reality.
Aside from "Men of the Strip," Timmons has a new song entitled "That Girl" with Traxstarz, which has a dance vibe to it. "It's a dance track. It has always been a goal of mine to cross-over into such a fun genre, and this song is going to enable me to do so. I was even fortunate enough to have written on it as well," he exclaimed.

Timmons is best known as the founding member of the Grammy-nominated pop group 98 Degrees, and this is not the first time that he crosses over to different musical genres. His "Whisper That Way" single from his debut first solo album was a hit on adult contemporary radio and it subsequently reached the Top 20 on the adult contemporary charts.
