JB Andreassi Reveals What It's Like To Watch Himself On Selling The Hamptons - Exclusive

When real estate agent JB Andreassi first signed up to be a reality television star, it wasn't an easy adjustment for him. "I used to hate the camera," he admitted during an exclusive interview with The List. Seeing an entire episode come together from his couch was even worse. "Watching it, it's almost, like, awkward," he said. "I remember looking at myself, I'm like, 'Come on. What are you trying to say? Speak.' But I think that's just because I was so new to it."

Fast forward two years, and Andreassi has gotten a lot more used to seeing himself star on his newest reality series, "Selling the Hamptons." That's not to say he's entirely comfortable with it, though. "Now, I'm going to be the guy, I put the blanket over my head as I'm watching myself," he admitted. Yet, with each new episode, it has gotten easier for him.

JB Andreassi's thoughts on watching himself on television have shifted

When "Selling the Hamptons" first hit discovery+, JB Andreassi couldn't wait to see himself in the series. "With 'Selling The Hamptons,' it's just a total different vibe, and I'm comfortable," he told The List. "I finally found that, like, little bit of swag and confidence," which makes watching himself on television an entirely new experience. At this point in his career, he's at the top of his game, which shows on the series.

While Andreassi may have not enjoyed being on camera before, "now what's funny is, I kind of, like — I like it," he admitted. "So if a camera's around, I'll ... jump in and say something funny. Whether it's someone shooting a video at my boxing gym or something, I always have to, you know, gravitate towards it."

At this point, it seems safe to say that we'll be seeing a lot more of Andreassi on our televisions — and he'll be seeing himself appear a lot more on his. As for watching himself when new episodes air, "I don't really like that part of it," he admitted, but the rest of us sure do.

"Selling the Hamptons" is available to stream now on discovery+.
