Jenn StergerInternet Celebrity / TV Personality
Birthplace: Miami, Florida
Best known as:
The prominent Florida State co-ed who became a broadcaster
Florida State University student Jenn Sterger parlayed two seconds of national TV time into years of Internet fame and an on-camera job with the New York Jets. After Sterger and two friends were featured in a bleacher shot of the FSU-Miami football game on 5 September 2005, announcer Brent Musberger quipped that "Fifteen hundred red-blooded Americans just decided to apply to Florida State." Some of those young men found her in bikini photos on the web portal Facebook, sent the link to friends, and Jenn Sterger was soon the online embodiment of the concupiscent co-ed. Sterger embraced her fame, posing for Maxim and Playboy magazines in 2006. That same year she began writing a regular column for the website Sports Illustrated on Campus. She joined the NFL's New York Jets in 2008 as a host for the team's local game broadcasts. She left the Jets in 2009 and in 2010 began co-hosting a sports program, The Daily Line, on the cable channel Versus.
Jenn Sterger was nicknamed the Facebook Princess, and also the "FSU Cowgirl," for her sartorial combinations of minimalist tops and cowboy hats in her early days of online fame... Sterger's friend Chrystal Durnan appeared in many of her Florida State photos and became a minor sub-celebrity of her own... Sterger was back in the news in 2010 after the website Deadspin claimed that NFL quarterback Brett Favre had sent her racy photos of himself to her cell phone. Sterger has not commented publicly on the allegations.
