In 2000, Jeffery Todd Hellstrom, otherwise known as J.T., first appeared in Genoa City as the hot boyfriend of Brittany Hodges with the 69' GTO. During his high school years, J.T. always knew how to have a good time and where to have it. After his fling with Brittany, J.T. moved on to Walnut Grove hottie Rianna and spent most of the time partying it up!
J.T.'s first 'real' attraction was to Mackenzie Browning. Too cool to be involved with the initial Glow By Jabot Kids Summer Production, J.T. enjoyed watching from behind the cameras and making fun of the cast. While Billy was dating Brittany, J.T. started to notice Billy's interest in Mac. Seeing both a challenge in Mac and a way to stick it to Billy, J.T. began to cause problems between the threesome, which only resulted in Billy and Mac growing closer. During the holidays, now a senior, J.T. joined the Glow By Jabot Campaign and once again dated both Rianna and Brittany on and off.
While everyone else was making plans to head off to college, J.T. stayed behind and found himself being drawn to a much younger, fourteen year old, Colleen Carlton. However, Colleen's family knew of J.T.'s reputation and put a halt to the relationship fast! However, the two continued to sneak around until Colleen's mother found out and had J.T. arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor after Colleen ran away! In time, J.T. proved himself to Colleen's dad and was allowed to continue seeing Colleen. Just when J.T. appeared to have changed, he was lured into an affair with Brittany's mother, Anita Hodges! Colleen found out and was heartbroken, but later forgave him.
When Colleen's friend Lily got mixed up with Kevin Fisher, Colleen didn't approved, sending Kevin on a rampage against Colleen. After locking Colleen in a cooler at Gina's restaurant, Kevin started the place on fire, but J.T. saved her in the knick of time! J.T. went to Kevin's apartment and beat him silly, later finding himself arrested once again.
Finding college not to be his thing, J.T. met up with a record promoter and accepted a recording contract. After accompanying J.T. in LA for a video shoot, Colleen couldn't handle seeing J.T. with other girls and she ended their relationship after he was forced to state that he was 'single' at a press release.
J.T. ended up walking out of his contract and returned to Genoa City to find that Colleen had moved back to New York City. J.T. went on to work as an apprentice detective with Paul Williams. J.T. and Mac became roommates after a tough time in Mac's life and the two ended up admitting their feelings for one another. However, after a fight over Mac not telling J.T. about her miscarriage, he ended up having a one-night stand with Victoria Newman! Although Mac had forgiven him, Colleen moved back to GC and ended up winning back J.T.'s heart. After Mac moved out of the loft, Colleen soon moved in.
Things with J.T. and Colleen began to go downhill after he was hired to investigate Brad's past. Although J.T. is one of the privileged who know the whole story behind Brad Carlton, in the beginning, he was forced to keep Colleen in the dark. In January of 2007, J.T. really began to notice a change in Colleen after she had started working so closely with her new professor Adrian Korbel. Although wanting to make the relationship work, J.T.'s heart was broken after Colleen expressed her interest in moving out of the loft and on with her life - without J.T.
J.T. started seeing Mackenzie, but wound up cheating on her with Victoria Newman, whom he fell in love with. When she found out she was pregnant, there was a possibility that the baby might belong to Victoria's ex-husband, Brad Carlton. After the baby was born, DNA testing proved the baby to be J.T.'s son and he and Victoria married.
