On top of that, Jerry's younger brother, Charlie O'Connell, was the heartthrob on the seventh edition of ABC's hit show The Bachelor. Jerry says he finds watching his brother's rose ceremonies particularly nerve-racking. "These are people's feelings, you know?" Jerry says. "And I feel very uncomfortable for him. To be frankly honest, I can't watch it the whole time."
Jerry says Charlie currently "is dating two of the girls, and he's really in love. He really is."
With his new stylish home makeover by Nate Berkus and Charlie's new romance, big things are afoot. "This is like the year of maturity for the Brothers O'Connell," Jerry says. "I mean, my brother's dropping L-bombs? 'I love her.' I'm, like, 'Wow, I've got white towels and you're dropping L-bombs.' It's crazy!"
