“Jetai”? Ashley chats about band names, underwear and showers.
Think “O-Town” (Orlando’s nickname) is a stupid name for the boy group that is featured on ABC’s Making the Band? According to O-Town member Ashley Parker Angel, the group was going to be called Jetai–one letter for each band member’s name (an *NSYNC rip-off, maybe?). In a wide-ranging chat/interview with E! Online’s Wanda, Ashley also reveals he wears Calvin Klein briefs and wonders “What is with THAT?!” about all the shots of him showering in every episode. (caution: the transcript reveals why they couldn’t use their original name, and that’s a mini-spoiler, especially if you didn’t see the “Next week on…” part of the show last Friday.)
