Jahnnalee Randall entered the modeling category for Big Shot Live, an online competition, and won. She was flown to Hollywood from Wisconsin and got teamed up to act along side Brian Huskey (Veep, Neighbors, Bob's Burgers). She got to model for Roxy at their studios in Huntington Beach, CA. This show made Jahnnalee realize she needed to move to LA to learn how to become an actor. Six months after the show she packed up her bags and moved half way across the country in 2009 to start her acting career which then lead into creating her own film company Why Wait Productions in 2012!
Jahnnalee started modeling when she was 12 years old. She applied for an MTV show at 18 and was accepted. She switched lives with a girl from New York to try her hand at modeling in the Big Apple. This two-part series that aired on MTV opened Jahnnalee's eyes to the possibility maybe acting might be more of her calling due to her goofy fun personality. She also learned a lot from the MTV crew by asking them so many questions about how things worked with filming. At this time Jahnnalee was already asking filmmaking questions but didn't even realize that was her calling until 2012. She believes you got to start somewhere and for her, it was a fun reality show on MTV.
The start of Jahnnalee's acting desire develops when she gets cast to be apart of MTV's television series Meet or Delete. Jahnnalee grew up on a farm her whole life and went to the same school that her father did. With a population of less than 1,000 people. Meet or Delete takes two strangers to switch lives for a week. There's two episodes and Jahnnalee switches lives from a country girl on the farm to living in New York City to follow her passion of modeling.
