Jen is first introduced in None Down, Eighteen to Go - Part 1 with her partner and fellow fashion blogger, Tom, where she gives a shout out to the fans of their blog. They gain an early lead after being the only ones to take the first elevator, despite that all the buttons were accidentally pushed and are the first team to arrive for the 'scare' challenge. However, she and Tom are frightened by the sky-walk and hesitate to do the challenge, long enough for other teams who are also doing the 'scare' challenge to catch up to them. They eventually do the challenge and made to the second plane. During the challenge in the following episode, Jen was shown warning Tom to stop drinking the stew too fast to avoid getting any stain on his shirt, which Tom agreed. They finish in tenth place.
In French is an Eiffel Language, both Jen and Tom are ecstatic when the next location is revealed to be Paris, the "fashion capital of the universe". After unintentionally causing one team to get into an accident, the two arrive in Paris where their taxi gets a flat tire in the middle of a shopping district. Jen sees this as a sign that they are destined to go shopping, and despite Tom showing reluctance at abandoning the vehicle, the two eagerly run into the nearest store. After awhile, the two finally arrive at the location of the challenge, where Jen has to draw a caricature of Tom. The two make it through the catacombs safely, though they are scared off by the shadow of a rat, and eventually make it to the Seine River. Realizing that their raft will not fit the both of them and their shopping bags, Jen makes a "big sacrifice" to get her hair wet and jumps into the river to push their raft. They finish in seventh place.Jen displays her magnetic charisma and charm throughout the following episodes as she and Tom breeze through the race with poise and style.

Her friendship with Tom is put to the test in A Tisket, a Casket, I'm Gonna Blow a Gasket, when they get into an argument after Carrie inquires about the origin of their fashion-focused blog. Throughout the episode, the two bicker over who came up with the idea which leads to them going out of their way to hurt one another. While taking part in the Botch or Watch Tom crashes into a lamp, electrocuting himself. In response, Jen gives a look of concern and comes to his aid, apologizing to him for their fight. The two make up and Tom finishes the challenge just in time to race against Stephanie and Ryan to the Chill Zone. However, they do not make it in time, and the Bloggers are cut from the race. As the pair departs, Jen explains that she was happy to do the race with Tom and that their near-death experiences were worth it in the end.
