Jenn Sterger is an American model, sports journalist, and actress. Ever since Sterger came into the spotlight, she has had her fair share of drama and controversy. As she did in 2010 when she received the racy voice-message and photos of NFL quarterback Brett Favre, the latter was claimed. Favre admitted to sending only voice messages, which cost him a $50,000 fine. However, the fine was due to Favre’s refusal to cooperate with the investigation “in the near future”.

Jenn Sterger Bio/Wiki/Age
Jennifer Lynette Sterger was born in Miami on November 29, 1983. She attended Gaither High School and later Florida State University, where she began building her celebrity status. Sterger, along with three other FSU students – C.J. Perry, Allison Torres, and Jessica Fuqua – became popular in school because she always wore skimpy clothes and cowboy hats at soccer games.
During a Miami-Florida state soccer game that was broadcast on ABC Sports, Sterger and her girls gained popularity after being spotted by the cameras.
After graduating from college, Sterger began modeling. She has posed for numerous Playboy and Maxim magazines. In March 2008, Sterger was featured on E! TV in Byte Me: The 20 hottest women on the Internet. Sterger has commuted for brands like Sprint and Dr. Pepper.
As a sports enthusiast, Jenn also aspired to become a sports journalist. She previously worked for Sports Illustrated and wrote a Wednesday feature for the website’s “Scorecard Daily” column. Sterger got a job with the New York Jets in 2008 as a hostess of GameDay.
Sterger has also worked for ABC Sports as host of Race to March Madness and for Fuel TV as a reporter.
In October 2017, after ESPN ended its relationship with Barstool Sports due to negative comments from the sports blog against women, Sterger told ESPN that she was no different from Barstool because she had been a victim of sexual harassment by ESPN employees in the past.
Sterger told of an incident when she went to Charlotte to do an on-air job at ESPN and revealed that a male employee had made her follow her to the strip club after a test for the show.
“I had to watch my male colleagues get lap dances from the girls while they teased me about being uncomfortable and not wanting to participate,” Sterger revealed in a message posted on Twitter.
After that night, two of her bosses confronted her about going to the strip club, and when she admitted she was there, they fired her.
“I told them I had been there, but I didn’t want to be there once I realized what it was. They admonished me and said that it made a bad impression on the company if I was there and would never do it again. I was fired before my plane landed in Tampa.”
Sterger also revealed that the male employee went unpunished and had even been promoted on ESPN.
ESPN responded almost immediately to Sterger’s allegations and said the incident was never brought to their attention. In a statement, ESPN said
“We have no record that this incident was ever brought to our attention. We are investigating all the allegations that have been brought to our attention thoroughly. Promoting a professional and respectful workplace is a top priority for ESPN and we always encourage people to report any problems.
Sterger moved to Los Angeles in 2012 to pursue a career as an actress and comedian.
