Jenna Pietersen is the stunning lingerie and swimsuit model from South Africa. Even if she is only 21 years old, hot Jenna has already been featured twice in the South African edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Jenna Pietersen started off modelling when she was 15….before that when she was even younger Jenna used to help her brother plant vegetables and sell these products in their neighborhood. Jenna’s initial advertising campaign was a Dutch teenager magazine. Her parents Kobus and Hetta Pietersen completely backed their cute daughter’s appearance into the world of fashion; modeling organizations were keen to sign her on. But their only just condition was that Jenna should be allowed to complete her schooling.
So Jenna Pietersen carried on her studies at Mej Girls High school; she was into sports activities during school and liked playing netball and prancing about in the gymnasium. At age 17 Jenna entered the Revlon Supermodel of the season contest, and was chosen to be one of 10 semi-finalists. The 10 girls from various areas of South Africa were flown to Cape Town to be judged for their poise, walk, personality etc.
Jenna Pietersen was in fact self-assured of doing excellent because of her past experience as a model however the winner of that 2004 competition was Julia van der Merwe. Still Jenna gained from this knowledge as did the other participants, some of whom became her close friends, like Naomi King of Durban who is also a model right now. Soon after taking part in this competition Jenna turned to full-time modelling.
Jenna has came out for various other lingerie brands like Body One of France. She has at the same time shot covers and features for magazines like Shape and GQ. She has walked the runway for the Cosmo Lingerie Show at Cape Town Fashion Week. Pietersen also put in an appearance at the 10th anniversary party of Sports Illustrated South Africa, in Cape Town.
The beautiful South African model would like to travel as much as she can, seeing new places, finish her journalism studies and complete building her new home in Stellenbosch.
In the 2006 issue Jenna Pietersen had said that she was not into the whole “gym thing” and that for her the best exercise is walking. Jenna keeps in shape just by walking with her dogs!
