“I am going to compete on “Ultimate Tag” which airs May 20th on Fox! “
BIG BACK GRIPS USER PROFILE: Jade Parnell
Jade Parnell’s Instagram page lists him as a “SAG Actor, Bodybuilder, Print Model, Athlete and a Special Needs Father. To which Big Back Grips would add “Total Gentleman and All-Around Nice Guy.” We first met Jade in 2018 when he came to Muscle Beach Venice to take part in the Big Back Pulldown Contest as part of the Muscle Beach Annual Christmas Toy Drive. We quickly dubbed him, “The only contestant to bring a toy for the kids ̶ ever!” In truth, we never ask competitors to donate toys, but that did not stop Jade. We were super excited when Jade agreed to join us at the Big Back Booth for Memorial Day the next year.
Currently based in the Los Angeles area, Jade is originally from Wisconsin, where he was an All-State and All-Conference athlete in several sports. His resume now includes features in fitness magazines, TV commercials and major league infomercials and packaging gigs. Anything else you want to know, let’s hear it right from Jade.
