Jax Taylor claims he's not threatened by his new "Vanderpump Rules" co-star, Brett Caprioni, who joined the Bravo reality series, and SUR Restaurant, last year amid production on season eight.

While appearing on this week's "Pump Rules: After Show" with Lisa Vanderpump, Jax, who has been featured on the show since it began airing in January 2013, shared his thoughts on Brett after admitting that he doesn't feel any more threatened by Brett than he is by longtime friend Tom Schwartz.

"I think he’s a nice guy but I put him under the same as like, Schwartz. I don’t feel he’s a threat at all," Jax explained after he and his "Vanderpump Rules" co-stars were featured on the first installment of their season eight reunion on Tuesday.

As for why Jax doesn't feel that his new co-star and fellow SUR Restaurant employee is a threat, Jax explained that Brett is just "a nice guy."

"He’s such a good person. I think he’s just a very sweet guy. He’s very nice," Jax revealed.

As a fitness enthusiast himself, which he took to the max during an earlier episode of "Vanderpump Rules" season eight, Jax appreciates the fact that Brett is very health-conscious and fit.

"He does the whole vegan thing and eats right and does the workouts. [He’s] trying to get his life going. But he’s got his head on straight," Jax shared.

Prior to joining the "Vanderpump Rules" cast last summer, Brett had a following on YouTube, where he regularly shares workout videos and other health-related tips.

While Jax believed that Brett got his heart broken a couple of times during production on the eighth season of "Vanderpump Rules," he said Brett came into the cast with good intentions.

"Some guys come in and they’re like, ‘How am I going to work this? Am I going to be the bada** guy? Am I going to go around and sleep with [everybody]?’ He could have done that but I think just he came in just normal, who he is," Jax explained. "He’s a refreshing addition to our cast because he’s a nice kid."

As she sat beside Jax during his chat with their producers on the "Pump Rules: After Show," Lisa shared her thoughts on her new cast member and made it clear that she is a fan.

"He’s a lovely, lovely man. He’s pretty straight-forward. He’s got his opinion," she stated.
