How exciting, I saw him give that little air punch as he finished. Imagine, that airhead reporter probably didn't even realise he was there. So the T-shirt was for charity - that explains it then *big grin*

Thank you so much for finding and sharing this with us xx

Greetings y'all. You may be interested to know that Jake's article will be appearing on the main page of Wikipedia on August 23 (even though it is horribly out of date and barely mentions Rendition). You might want to take a peep. :)

^^^ Why is it horribly outdated??? that f'n wikipedia is a joke! I tried to add some info and "they" took it right down again. So many arbitrary policies, "only one fan site per person" and last time I looked a few days ago, *someone* has removed all traces of IHeartJake. What the h is wiki good for anyway if they won't even reference pertinent information? Bah!

Can I also shout "Go England! Yay!" in a high-pitched Australian accent?

Yes you're right about Wikipedia, anonymous. It's not always the correct information on there. As we already know don't believe everything you read; it's just someone's (usually sanctioned) opinion. Only the other day there were internet news headlines saying the CIA and the Vatican(?) were editing their Wikipedia entries. Anyone else see that?

Sarah920 said...

It depends what that info was, anonymous person. The most persistent information we have taken down from his article is the claim that he's dating Reese Witherspoon, which just gets dumped at the end of the article, usually with no punctuation and no reference. Unsurprisingly, the people who watch that article revert it immediately. We do not add info claiming co-stars are dating that consist of nothing more than People trying to read a serious relationship into two people sitting next to each other. It is not "pertinent" and if you are that person who keeps adding that, please can I ask you to stop.

And I have replaced the link to Iheartjake, I have no idea why it was taken down or by who.

The only relationships that should be added to anyone on Wiki are the ones thathave been confirmed by all parties. Jake's page has Jenny Lewis and Kristen, and that's how should be. Any gossip is just that and not a fact and at this point Reese is gossip.

PS: Thanks for finding that video Brit!

I like the fact that not only was he running for charity, but they didn't make a big deal of him being in the race!

Xenia said...

I can't even imagine how the starting order was decided...the starting line seems a little "messy" haha :)

Thanks for the video!

Re: wikipedia
No sarah920 I am not the person who keeps adding that. I have never added to or edited wikipedia in my life.

HAHAHA! That link above to a sexy hot pic is Borat! LOL. Should I say 'very naice'?? :-)

Boy did Jakes hair grow from the race pictures on the 11th to the picture at Us weekly ( I Assume the picture was taken this weekend).

Anon 12:48 here, to Sarah020:

The only info I tried to add to wiki was fansites. Which you disallowed. Remember? I never added no Reese W.

And I will repeat again, wtf is IMDb doing on there, instead of another reputable site? IMDb is like the Yellow Pages fgs, why do they get to be mentioned, and not JW or WDW? Eh, you prob will never see this comment anyway.....

Sarah920 said...

I assume you're the person I messaged about this, and I'll give you the same answer. Wikipedia has a policy, WP:EL, which only allows one fansite per article. It's to stop people with a large fandom ending up with twenty sites or more at the bottom of the list - it becomes pointless. Imagine what would happen if Elijah fans were given full reign over his article. That's why only IHJ is linked on Jake's.

IMDB is linked with every actor, because it gives a very good and accurate filmography, even if the bios are rubbish. I fail to see why this is bad, is you were a new fan, would you not want to know what films he has been in? I have a copy of his IMDB filmography on my wall and I'm been hunting down all of his early films from it. Seems like a good link to me. :)
