Jay is of mixed heritage; his mother is Italian and Czech, while his father has Dutch and Malaysian roots while he was born in South Africa. Jay, however, was adopted and grew up in Toronto, Canada. He went to the Dr Norman Bethune Collegiate Institute, and later to York University.

Before Jay decided to pursue a career in fashion, he studied opera, and worked for the Metropolitan Opera, and was also a pre-med student. However, he became focused on make-up for no known clear reason, and started working for such models as Tyra Banks and Iman. Little by little he managed to expand his number of clients, as his talents as a make-up artist became more widely known, working for such celebrities as Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Silverstone, Pink, Patti LaBelle, Toni Braxton, Natalie Cole, Rosario Dawson and many others. He built up a friendship with Banks, and soon enough Jay was hired as creative director of photo shoots for the show “America`s Next Top Model” beginning in the early 2000s, and stayed on the in the position until 2012, when he was fired by Tyra after 18 seasons because of falling ratings,. Nevertheless, the show celebrated him as a fashion personality, and certainly helped him greatly in his career, and boosted his net worth considerably.

Jay has also been the host of such shows as “Style Her Famous” (2006-2009), “Canada`s Next Top Model” (2006-2009), “Fashion Police” (2006-2010), and “Fashion News Live” (2007-2015), all of which certainly increased his net worth to a large degree.

Aside form the limelight on TV, Jay has also launched several cosmetic and clothing lines by himself, including the Manuel Override, Jay Manuel Beauty and Attitude, a clothing line for Sears Canada, which have also improved his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, although Jay is openly gay, his love life remains uncovered. Other details about his private life remain a mystery too. However, he is quite active on social networks, including Twitter, on which he has more than a million followers.
