Gameplay

The Inferno 3

Bio: Jenn was always a popular girl and party animal but in Denver the partying went a bit too far even for her. After a huge blowout screaming match with Tyrie, she decided to take the partying down a notch. Despite swearing she had no attraction to Alex what so ever, they hooked up on more than one occasion. They weren't love-birds, they were "drunk-birds." Well, whatever kind of birds they were, their hooking up definitely caused some friction with Colie since she'd laid claims to him the very first night in the house. Will there be another Denver love triangle on The Inferno 3?

The Island

Bio: Jenn is single and planning on going back to school. She returned from The Inferno 3 with a few lessons-learned under her belt. Her strategy this time is to play her own game and not get caught up in any alliances. But with her Denver roommates Colie and Tyrie counting on her support and new friendships developing, Jenn will have trouble flying solo on The Island. But, really, is going it alone the right thing for her to do?

The Duel II

Bio: The party animal of the Denver season of The Real World, Jenn is a fun-loving former Oakland Raiderette cheerleader who, as of late, has been dancing professionally with the San Francisco-based team La Femme Panache. She was one of the Bad Asses on The Inferno 3, but got blown out four weeks before the finale. She made it into a boat on The Island, but her team was nearly sunk and ultimately lost the final race for the money. She's on her way to New Zealand to try her luck one more time. Will the third time in The Challenge be the charm for Jenn?

Fresh Meat II

Bio: Shy, quiet, and reserved...are three words that have never been used to describe Jenn. Our favorite, fast-talking Northern California hottie is back for her fourth challenge, hoping to finally go home with some cash. Jenn promises that this time around, "I'm ready to win. And I want first place. Not second or third." One thing that we've come to expect from Jenn is her sharp tongue. Cross her and she will definitely let you know it! After hooking up with Rachel on both The Island and The Duel II, don't be surprised if Jenn finds a new romance in British Columbia. Anything is possible with this feisty Challenger!

Cutthroat

Bio: Jenn walked away from her last Challenge with two things she was not expecting: a committed relationship with her Fresh Meat II boy-toy Pete and a new determination to finally win the game. Having fallen just short of reaching the jackpot last time, this boisterous beauty from Real World: Devner is not mincing words about her disappointment, "Getting to a final and not winning is a slap in the face. I am here and I will win." Will this Challenge vixen prove triumphant this time around?

Rivals

Bio: The feisty Jenn is renowned for her sharp tongue, crafty gamesmanship, and unfortunate track-record of losing in the finals. This veteran Challenger and Real World: Denver alum has yet to win the grand prize and she's tired of it. But will Rivals be the Challenge that Jenn finally wins? Or will a partnership with her inexperienced rival sink her chances at victory? Whether she wins or loses, rest assured that Jenn's fiery temper and habit of terrorizing her female competitors will make her a welcome addition to this season.
