PHOTOS BIO Jenna Burke from The Bachelor 16 with Ben Flajnik

The Bachelor 16 contestant Jenna Burke from Ben Flajnik's season

Meet Jenna Burke, one of twenty-five eligible bachelorettes competing for the heart of hunky wine maker Ben Flajnik on Season 16 of The Bachelor set to premiere January 2, 2012 on ABC.

Pro: She’s a blogger!

Con: There sure seems to be a lot more blue at the top of her ABC studio portrait, which could mean she’s a little shorter than the rest. (Obviously not a major “con” per se, just pointing it out. We don’t have a lot of information on Jenna so I don’t have a lot to work with here!) (Actually, in the photo below where she meets Ben Flajnik for the first time in episode one, Jenna doesn’t seem short at all. Hmmmm.)

Heterosexual dude Fellow blogger notes: Jenna better represent blogger nation well! (Of course, all of this is moot if she runs a Twilight blog. She lists The Unbearable Lightness of Being as her favorite book, so I’m guessing that won’t be the case.) UPDATE – We found out which blog she runs! See below for all the deets!

UPDATE – Thanks to a heads up from a long-time friend of Jenna’s we now know her blog is where Jenna talks about everything from fashion to the meaning of flowers to why yellow is so awesome! (Definitely not Twilight) Here is how Jenna describes the site on it’s “About” page:

I enjoy analyzing. It’s one of the things people may consider a problem, yet it’s one of the things I really like to do. I think it makes us more interesting and leads us to new discoveries. Overanalyzing happens because you really have a deep interest in learning about life, the good and the bad. I embrace my desires, I feel inspired and I witness the beauty.



It should be fun to read her entry on her experiences on The Bachelor! (Coming soon I’m sure.)

Do you like being the center of the attention or do you prefer being more mysterious and why?
This is tough – I love keeping people guessing, yet I madly love to make people laugh.

What is your favorite all-time book and why?
“The Unbearable Lightness of Being” – It helped me understand more about people and their tears of life.

If you wanted to impress a man what would you do and why?
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.

Tattoo Count: 0

What’s your worst date memory?
Some guy tried to make a movie out of our date and kiss me in the rain.
