Parker was born on June 9, 1987 in California, and is best known for participating in two reality shows — Logo’s Fire Island in 2017 and the second season of MTV’s Ex on the Beach in 2019.
He revealed to Instinct magazine, that he was not looking to become a reality TV star. “I didn’t seek out reality TV, it found me!! Just like Fire Island, the phone rang, and I answered and at first said NO.”
“My unabashed presence on social media was what sparked their interest and I think after witnessing me hold my own on ‘Fire Island,’ I was an easy pick for this show. I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into, but I knew I was going to have to be on guard and overcome a lot of emotional obstacles to come out on top exposure-wise form this show. Either way, the fact that I had the opportunity to be one of the first gays in MTV history as far as dating platforms like ‘Ex on the Beach’ goes, I had to take part in it. Just like Fire Island this was the first of its kind and I ultimately couldn’t turn it down,” he added.
