Biography


Successfully proving that a pin-up girl certainly could make good transition to screen feature, Jennifer McCarthy sure has become one of the substantial figures to stand in the forefront of her ilk in Hollywood film industry. Hailed from a middle class Irish Catholic family, Jenny was born the second of four daughters of Dan and Linda McCarthy on November 1, 1972 in Chicago, Illinois where she mostly grew up to then attend Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School before entered Southern Illinois University to study nursing. Upon finding out that the expense for her education there got unbearably increasing by 1992, she thus recklessly sent her picture to Playboy in her attempt to earn a sum of money and surprisingly received a positive response from the magazine to pose for its October 1993 issue. Following this, her profile among the readers kept rising increasingly so that she finally was labeled Playmate of the Year in June 1994 issue.

Unmistakably earned a certain degree of attention due to the title, the initial success in turn brought Jenny to the idea that this could be the right time for her to pursue another profession, and choosing to try developing one in show business, she optimistically packed her things to head for Los Angeles in conclusion. Fortunately, jobs were not very difficult to secure as she quickly earned a one-time appearance in a 1994 episode of CBS crime drama series “Silk Stalking” then a minor role in Christopher Walken's vehicle of “Things To Do in Denver When You're Dead” (1995). However, it was her quick-witted, humorous hosting stint in MTV's hit show “Singled Out” from 1995 to 1997 that really elevated the blue-eyed beauty to vast popularity, establishing her to be a celebrity around the country right away while gave her wider access to move further in screen industry.
