The Bachelor 16’s Jenna Burke: 5 Things You Need To Know

You know she's The Bachelor Season 16's first official Drama Girl — and she’s weirdly obsessed with Monica Spannbauer — but what else do you know about tearful 27-year-old relationship blogger Jenna Burke? Here are some factoids about the Loveland, OH native who was dismissed in Episode 2:

She likes to keep us guessing
In her ABC bio, she's asked, "Do you like being the center of the attention or do you prefer being more mysterious and why?" Her answer: "This is tough – I love keeping people guessing, yet I madly love to make people laugh." So are we supposed to laugh while guessing if she played up her emotions on the premiere?

She is confident and secure ... in theory
Asked "If you wanted to impress a man what would you do and why?" she answers, "Approach a man – I think it shows a woman is confident & secure with herself. We are a different generation. I don’t necessarily need to be courted…I like spontaneity…anything goes." Anything is right.

She's deep
Her favorite book is The Unbearable Lightness of Being. "It helped me understand more about people and their tears of life."

She can probably change this now
Asked "What’s your worst date memory?" she answers, "Some guy tried to make a movie out of our date and kiss me in the rain." That actually sounds kinda nice, and much better than her meeting with Ben and everyone else in the Bachelor mansion.

She really does blog … sometimes
Her suspiciously “under construction” blog, called The Over-Analyst, includes a "Love" category where she writes about body language, the meaning behind certain flowers and her thoughts on the film Crazy, Stupid, Love. Is freelance writer her actual profession? Maybe. Maybe she’s also an actress hired by ABC specifically to attract the attention of other bloggers by insulting one of their own. Conspiracy hats on!
