House Rules: Jared’s shock secret life exposed

Many don't know this about the Perth-based couple.

Jess and Jared from Adelaide may be known for Jared’s famed football career, but few would know that he now works in communities to encourage kids to attend school.



‘I work in remote school attendance with a string of communities and schools out in South Australia,’ Jared says. ‘I work across a number of programs to entice kids to go to school.’

The sportsman says he fell into the job after mentoring and developing the younger guys at his local club, and his boss approached him to ask whether he was interested in getting into a similar line of work.

‘I wanted to be a mentor of some sort away from footy and it just worked out perfectly,’ the former footy star reveals.
