Jake celebrated his birthday in West Hollywood last month after co-star Vas J Morgan threw him a birthday bash, and now he's spoken about the celebrations in a new video on the TOWIE website with co-star Tommy Mallet.
In what Tommy called "serious networking", Jake explained how popstar and X Factor judge Rita - who is Vas' close friend - ended up celebrating his birthday with him.
"In Vas' group, they're part of their group," said Jake. "Vas organised my birthday and they turned up, so it was quite a nice surprise. We had such a laugh."
Speaking about Vas, Jake said: "He lives the high life. I've had a little taste of it and he's jet-setting everywhere. I think he's in New York now."
Before LA, Jake was in Las Vegas working on his fashion brand Prévu: "I went over to Vegas for work and it kept rolling into work, going out, work, going out, so I didn't have much sleep."
Speaking about the LA lifestyle, Jake said: "It's a nice place, there's a lot of nice things there, if you know what I mean." He had earlier joked: "There were loads of girls walking about in bikinis, it was terrible."
