The Jeep® brand is looking to bring some celebrity attention to the picture with their first-ever Web Series Competition. The Jeep Wrangler Celebrity Customs will be the name of the series and will be hosted by 13-year NBA star Jalen Rose. Competitors include World Series winner and 14-time All-Star Alex Rodriguez, popular media personality Maria Menounos, Andrew Steinthal and Chris Stang. The web series ranges from three to five minutes an episode and is available online. The first three episodes have debuted and are available to watch right now with the remaining episodes to be released on September 18th, 20th and on the 27th, 2018. They will announce a Wrangler Golden Grille Award winner on Thursday, September 27th, 2018.

What Does the Competition Entail

The celebrities will team with professional customizers and Jeep Performance Parts to craft an all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Each celebrity will showcase their individual styles, passions and tastes. The last installment will take place September 27 at a special reveal event in Los Angeles where all four celebrity contestants are expected to be present when the customization challenge winner is announced.

The winner will receive the Wrangler Golden Grille Award, but fans will still be able to vote online at for the Fan Favorite Award, following the sixth and final episode on September 27. The voting will take place on from September 27 through October 5.

Jeepers have long customized the Jeep Wrangler to reflect their individual personalities that enable them to seek their own unique adventures, wherever the road takes them. Throughout the web series, the celebrities work with the customizers and Jeep Performance Parts to outfit their Jeep Wrangler and create a one-of-a-kind vehicle. The winner not only get bragging rights, but will keep the Jeep Wrangler they’ve customized, which no doubt will turn heads wherever they go.

What Do the Celebrities Have To Say?

Alex Rodriguez will be working with Ryan Friedlinghaus of West Coast Customs to make the “ultimate” Jeep Wrangler, one that fits his business and out of office needs.

“It’s been thrilling to compete in the first ever Jeep Wrangler Celebrity Customs. Ryan and his team at West Coast Customs are building me the perfect ride – a Wrangler that keeps up with both my business and my lifestyle. I’m certain those guys are going to help me knock it out of the park!” said Rodriguez.

Renowned TV personality and SiriusXM host Maria Menounos Jason never owned a Jeep Wrangler, but she will after getting help from David Tonapetyan of DCD Customs. DCD Customs, which specializes in Jeep Wrangler customizations, are set to make her dream Jeep Wrangler that is exciting and safe for her pets.

“I’m so excited to participate in this program with the Jeep brand and I look forward to presenting creative space and organizational solutions from my own personal point of view, while also catering to dog lovers everywhere!” said Menounos.

Chris Stang and Andrew Steinthal are the founders of The Infatuation, a social and digital discovery platform that help others find a restaurant for any situation. Andrew and Chris have teamed up with Stefano Loria of AutoCraft NYC to create a Wrangler that stands out in a city as large as New York.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the Jeep brand on this program. We’ve always dreamed about having our own custom Infatuation ride, and we couldn’t think of a better vehicle than the Jeep Wrangler to make our own,” said Chris Stang, CEO & Co-Founder.

“We look forward to seeing how Alex Rodriguez and Maria Menounos customize their vehicles, and our goal is to see their designs in our rearview mirror when we win. May the best Jeep Wrangler win.” added Andrew Steinthal, the second half of The Infatuation.
