Jenna Compono is one of the exes on Real World: Ex-Plosion. She arrives at the house to surprise her ex boyfriend, Jay. She is a secretary and model. During her stay, Jenna finds out that Jay is cheating on her which led to their brief breakup.


Jenna trusts her man and no one else, not even his 60,000 followers that he constantly flirts with on social media, is going to change that! Blinded by her boyfriend’s sweet talk, Jenna wants Jay to commit and call her his girlfriend. Outside of her love life, Jenna is an aspiring model that has applied to be in Playboy Plus and landed a second casting interview. Jenna moves into the house to get closer to Jay, but will be in for a rude awakening when she realizes that Jay has been less than innocent with the women of San Francisco. Will she bare it all for the love of her own playboy Jay?
