He thinks he can do anything. If the guys are lifting weights, he will load the machine with five times more than he is capable of handling and choke on the bar. He will accept almost any dare and will usually hurt himself in the process. Jerry can speak Spanish perfectly. He wants to look like a tough bad-boy but is loyal and serious when it comes to friendships. He's very confused. He was a lone wolf before he entered Bobby Wasabi. He is a great dancer, even inventing his own move called The Jerry. He has a girlfriend, Mika but in Season 3, he is seen dating multiple girls. In Two Dates and a Funeral, he thought Kim liked him.
