The Voice's Jake Hoot Had A Small Christmas Problem After Winning The Voice
The holiday season is upon us, which means for many it's a time of gift giving. Typically, coming into a lot of money during the holidays can be a great thing, though The Voice's Season 17 winner Jake Hoot now has a small problem this Christmas because of that.
Jake Hoot spoke to CinemaBlend following his victory, and as we previously reported, he had little expectation he would win. Now he's $100,000 richer, and realizing he and his girlfriend should've been a bit more careful in what they said to their daughters as the holiday season approached.
Jake Hoot spent the whole year telling his daughter and his girlfriend's daughter to keep adding things to their Christmas list, and now he got paid just in time to pay the piper. It's a cute and funny problem to have, especially since Hoot never dreamed he'd be the winner of one of America's most popular singing competitions when he started making those promises.
Jake Hoot didn't tell CinemaBlend whether or not he'd be using that prize money for the presents, but he did reveal a bit about what his girls could expect under the tree on Christmas morning. The girls (Hadley and Macy) may not have a thousand items to look forward to on Christmas morning, but they do have one really special gift Hoot and his girlfriend got for them.
Hoot admitted that he hadn't thought much about The Voice prize money since winning, mostly because the days since winning have been like a blur. Take that, plus the holiday season, and the fact that he's going into 2020 with a record deal, and one can understand that all may be a little bit much to manage. Still, one can't help but think he'll bust out in 2020 and maybe be one of the biggest Voice winners to break out in Hollywood we've seen yet.
Why The Voice Should Stop Showing Rehearsals Before Actual Performances
The Voice returns to NBC in late February of 2020 with Nick Jonas as a coach. Stick with CinemaBlend in the meantime for more details on the competition, and for a look at what else is on the way in the world of television and movies.
