Jai Rodriguez has most recently starred in the lead role of Zanna in the off-Broadway musical hit Zanna, Don't! Jai joined the production after a long stint on Broadway as Angel in the Tony Award-winning musical Rent. Jai is also a fixture among the hip NYC social set, regularly performing his solo act in the newest and hottest nightspots. On "Queer Eye" (2003), Jai uses all aspects of his professional training and skills as a performer plus his social charisma to coach straight subjects on everything from mixing 'n mingling in a social setting, to conversation skills, and to being at ease on the dance floor. Jai got into singing because when he was younger, he sang in a black gospel choir at church. He then got into acting by acting in school plays quite often. When he was in high school he spent half a day at Smithtown High School, and then half a day at the Boces Theater Program. To keep in shape Jai goes to the gym 3 times a week and dances a lot.
