Two years later, Jesse Watters began working with the production team of ‘The O’Reilly Factor,’ a news and talk show on ‘Fox News,’ hosted by Bill O’Reilly.
As part of ‘The O’Reilly Factor,’ Jesse Watters, along with his cameraman, badgered journalist Amanda Terkel during her holiday in 2009. She was questioned for a negative critique of Bill O’Reilly. Seven years later, the incident returned to haunt in the form of Ryan Grim, a journalist from ‘The Huffington Post,’ asking Watters to apologize to Terkel at a journalists’ conference. The incident reportedly turned into a skirmish between the two.
In October 2016, Jesse Watters was criticized for being racist for his content in a segment on ‘Watters’ World,’ featuring the Asian–Americans of Chinatown, Lower Manhattan, New York City. He asked the Chinese–Americans in the neighborhood if they were trained in martial arts and if it was customary to bow before greeting. He also asked them if their watches were bought legitimately or stolen. The 1974 disco song ‘Kung Fu Fighting’ played in the background during the segment. It also had clips that featured him fiddling with nunchucks and getting a foot massage.
Jesse Watters and Noelle met at ‘Fox News.’ Noelle worked with the advertising and promotions department of the network and was the host of the web show ‘iMag Style.’ They married in 2009.
Jesse Watters made his engagement to DiGiovine public in August 2019 and married her in December 2019.
