1. Nick Jonas Can’t Wait to Be Slimed
Each year, we watch celebrities get slimed at the Kids Choice Awards and the host is never safe. Last year, host Mark Wahlberg was determined to not get slimed and then it all went down in one of the most epic slime moments imaginable. So how does Jonas feel about getting slimed? He tells People:
I feel like it’s an honor. It’s a rite of passage.
2. Olivia Culpo Is His Girlfriend

For a moment, Culpo was nervous because she thought he was going to propose.
3. He Wore a Purity Ring for Many Years
When Jonas was on the Wendy Williams show in November 2014, she noticed that he was no longer wearing his purity ring and he implied that he’s no longer a virgin. Jonas confessed:
I think it was an important part of my childhood and it was that. As I grew up, I sort of figured out what was important to me and my own belief system. We all grow up and we all live life and find out what’s important to us, that’s what happened. I went on that journey myself and I’m now comfortable with who I am and what I believe in and I’m an adult … As I said, I’m an adult in all ways.
