Who is Jenna Compono?
Jenna Compono was born on the 31st December 1992, in Long Island, New York, USA, and is a reality personality who is probably best recognized for being a part of the widely popular reality show entitled “The Challenge” on MTV Real World channel. In addition, she is a star on all social media accounts she has, including Instagram and Twitter. Moreover, she is well-known for participating in several more reality shows, such as “Bloodline”, “Battle of Exes II”, and “Real World Ex-Plosion”.
Jenna was raised in a big family with 5 siblings, brothers Tom, Johnny and Sonny and two sisters Kiara and TonniAnne. She was always thought to cherish the family life and share everything with her siblings, so that is why her family always takes first place on her list of priorities, according to the sources close to her. From an early age, Jenna was considered an outgoing person, with a positive attitude and competitive character, which she expressed towards her siblings, as well as at school.
Even though she wasn’t that much into sports, she enjoyed all sorts of competitions, as she loved winning and proving that she was the best, even in the fields she wasn’t interested in. Moreover, although she didn’t like to study and never considered herself so smart, she wanted to be good at school, just to prove that she could compete with her schoolmates.
After matriculating from high school with good grades, she attended the Nassau Community College in New York City, and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice in 2014. That is when she found her first job at an attorney’s office as a secretary, however, she soon found it boring and not suitable for her extrovert nature and personality, so she needed to quit. As she realized that she still needed to make a living, she started babysitting until she found an industry in which she could express her social confidence and feel most comfortable.
Reality TV Career
It didn’t take long to find something like that; Jenna found out that MTV Real World Channel was preparing a reality TV show entitled “The Challenge”, so she decided to try herself in that role, as it was obvious to her that she would adjust pretty quickly and be good at it. Not only did she fit into the role and the surroundings, but her competitive character helped her get to the finals three years in a row, so her return to season four of the same show entitled “The Challenge: Rivals 4” was non-negotiable.
Furthermore, the show’s producers wanted to feature her in all of the spin-offs of the show, including “The Challenge: After Show – Battle of the Bloodline”. Moreover, she participated in several more reality TV shows, among which the most popular ones were “Battle of Exes II” and “Real World Ex-Plosion”, which were very dramatic and exciting as they were all about exes. In the reality show business, she showed her competitive spirit, as well as her power to achieve whatever she set her mind onto, so she became famous for her ability to stay cool in very awkward and unsettling situations.
However, one of her weaknesses was exposed, as well. Namely, she likes to eat a lot and tends to overeat and gain weight quickly, so she needed to learn how to take control of that, as her greatest career wish was to become a model. Fortunately, she was able to do that, taking care of her nutrition, swimming and getting into a good shape, and then applying to all sorts of modeling jobs – the only contracts she avoided were nudes and fetishes, however, she received a lot of offers, among which there was one she couldn’t decline – she was featured in the Playboy Plus special for which she was photographed and interviewed.

Moreover, she got offers to model for Manhattan Lounge Cover Art, Triangle Lingerie Catalogue 2012 and Stars Model Agency NYC. She revealed that she is currently looking for castings in editorial pictures and high fashion.
Personal Life, Net Worth and Social Media Presence
Jenna has been dating her colleague from “The Challenge”, Zach Nichols from 2014, with ups and downs. They met while they were shooting “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II”, but the relationship soon had its first setback when Zach accidently called Jenna by the name Brooke in 2016. The rumors of infidelity started immediately, so the couple broke up the same year, but reunited several months later, and kept their relationship secret until 2018 when Jenna revealed it on her Instagram account by posting their picture.
Speaking about her net worth, it is estimated by authoritative sources that Compono counts her net worth at over $200,000, accumulated through her modeling and reality TV career. As for her social media presence, she has an Instagram account with almost 500,000 followers, as well as the Twitter one with more than 160,000 followers.
