The First Secret Millionaire For The New Season Is Revealed!

By

Scott Jacobs and his teenage daughter, Alexa, will appear on the season three premiere of the ABC hit television show Secret Millionaire. The episode is scheduled to air on June 3 at 8 PM ET/7 PM CT. Just who is Scott Jacobs? Only about the most famous Harley-Davidson artist in the world. The art he creates, which includes posters, paintings, canvas prints, and giclees, is dubbed photo-realist due to its intricate details.

Scott has worked professionally as an artist for 20 years. However, he initially approached the art sector from a different angle, becoming one of the youngest art gallery owners ever at just 19 years old. Scott’s interest in art developed during his high school years, when he worked on his school newspaper as an artist. Though he did not initially pursue a career as an artist, that all changed when his wife gifted him a paint set.

Soon, Scott was painting the motorcycles and cars he admired for years. The public began buzzing when a New York art show featured several of his Harley-Davidson motorcycle paintings. Harley-Davidson executives also took notice, eventually awarding him the honor of becoming the first officially licensed Harley-Davidson artist in 1993. Scott soon began adding classic cars, wine and spirit still-life paintings, and lifestyle images to his repertoire.

Multiple organizations have made Scott their officially licensed artist, including Elvis Presley Enterprises, the Hot Wheels Race Team from Mattel, and the Corvette Division of Chevrolet Motor Company. Scott added publisher to his list of accomplishments in 2004 when he created Scott Jacobs Studio. Other notable achievements include serving as official artist for the Sturgis motorcycle rally 17 times and creating the best-selling Franklin Mint collector plate to feature a Harley-Davidson.

The crowning achievement in Scott’s art career occurred in 1998, when he received the Lifetime Achievement in Fine Art Vargas Award. This honor is akin to an Oscar for an actor. Approximately 83 countries now display Scott’s work and his creations are even featured on tin signs and art to wear apparel.

The biggest challenge of Scott’s life may be yet to come when he and Alexa travel to Newark, New Jersey, to volunteer their time and efforts to local charities. By the end of the episode, this father and daughter team must reveal themselves and decide which causes are worthy of a portion of Scott’s fortune. We are already on the edge of our seats!
