Over those years she published a number of photos where she could be seen with that “unnamed” man and (obviously) his daughter. Jill Wagner didn’t want to name them. She posted those photos with descriptions like “my future with these two” or “my favorite two people”, and she addresses them with “Love” or “Family”. But she has never said that she was in a relationship nor that she was seeing anyone. All the rumors were backed only by those pictures with her, that man and the little girl.

That subject was touched on by the famous YouTube duo the “Good Mythical Morning”. The two guys, owners of that YouTube channel talked about their college days and how to approach a girl. To explain their point of view, they recalled one girl they have never had the courage to approach. Her name was “Miss Perfect”. She was the most beautiful girl they have ever seen and they only watched her. So, the years have passed, they got married to some other girl who they had the courage to approach. But one day they were watching a show called Wipeout, and who do you think they saw? They saw their Miss Perfect hosting the show. Their Miss Perfect was actually none other than Jill Wagner.

They weren’t here boyfriends but the one that was, was Jay Gordon, the lead singer of the alternative metal band “Orgy”. They were going out for four years, from 2001 to 2005. After that Jill started hosting the famous show and after that, she started acting.
