Pro: Works at CBS Sports!

Con: The only photo of Jaclyn we have is the official ABC studio shot which, unfortunately for Jaclyn, isn’t very flattering.

Heterosexual dude notes: It would be hard to pass on a gal working for CBS Sports in New York City! That probably equates to year-round box seats for every sport!
