Joel Rush, born in 1982, in Tampa, Florida, USA, is an American model turned actor.

Rush is largely known as the runner up of ABC’s reality series, “True Beauty,” a competition between models with a twist. He was proclaimed runner up on the show.

Rush delved into acting in 2010, playing roles in two “Eating Out” films: “The Open Weekend” and “Drama Camp”; as well as appearing in six episodes of “Days of Our Lives”.

In 2012, Rush starred in another gay film “Love or Whatever”, a romantic comedy opposite Tyler Poelle.

Prior to modeling and acting, Rush worked in software sales. He is just as cool as his name makes him sound. Living in Tampa, he is a wild party-guy who confessed he married his wife because she is “as hot as me, so she can relate to what I go through.”

Rush has a heart and will tear up if you ask him about his grandpa, but that sentimental side is a rare sight for the guy who is the loudest, most conceited man at any party.
