I found this interesting since people were pointing out things about Boogie: I like Janelle, but this is just to be fair
Prior to Big Brother, Janelle was an actress and model, with most of her screen credits under the spelling "Perzina" not "Pierzina".
She modeled and did an extended interview for Xposed magazine, and was named as a SBK World Superbike Calendar Girl by FastDates.com.
Before Big Brother, she filmed a pilot episode for a travel series called Nautical Angels, but the series was not picked up for broadcast. The show featured three women ("angels"), who traveled to various tourist destinations, examining the history, culture, and activities of each location. Janelle was the "action angel", trying out different activities of the area. In the pilot, the girls traveled to Southeast Asia. The only video of the pilot appears on the production company's web site.
She also had a bit part in the movie Bruce Almighty, which was cut significantly, but not entirely. She also appeared briefly as a non-speaking extra on Friends and Charmed.Early in her career, Pierzina ran afoul of the law with two minor offenses, misdemeanor theft and a DWI infraction; Pierzina eventually pleaded guilty to both offenses.
