Fimmel grew up on a farm outside of Echuca, Victoria, Australia, as the youngest of three brothers. At the age of seventeen, Fimmel moved to Melbourne, Victoria to play football and study project management at RMIT University. However, his football career was cut short by a broken leg.

Fimmel later rose to prominence as the star of Calvin Klein's Crave advertising campaign and playing the title role in The WB network's failed television series Tarzan. Fimmel was the first male model to sign a six figure deal to represent Calvin Klein exclusively.
