Runner-up?[edit]

Why do you keep changing it to runner-up? It clearly says on The CW's very own website that Jaslene is the winner right here. Thanks. -theblueflamingoSquawk 01:13, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Oops, sorry, that link just took her to her bio page on The CW's site.--theblueflamingoSquawk 01:22, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

jaslene was NOT raised in bolingbrook,il[edit]

i know jaslene personally and she was raised in humboldt park..northwest side of chicago, not bolingbrook.!! so please change that.

Fair use rationale for Image:Jaslene.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Jaslene.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 09:34, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Jaslene's Weight[edit]

jaslene is certainly NOT 92 pounds...her bmi would ve 14...she's 110 check your sources or change that... Lucia (talk) 13:51, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Jaslene's height[edit]

I have removed everything regarding Jaslene's height. If there isn't a source for it, it should not be included in the article. It's ridiculous that every day someone changes it from 5'7'' to 5'8'' and then back again. If someone finds a source, please put it back in. Otherwise I think it should stay out. Eatcacti (talk) 01:12, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Jaslene's Birthday[edit]

The current one says May 28. What is the source? This video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=7v_ZFrIP6jU shows her saying her birthday is "May twenty-ninth". Sireafi (talk) 02:19, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Cover of Vanidades[edit]

I don't have a problem adding info about upcoming photoshoots and covers if we can find a reliable source for information that is likely to be challenged but claiming that she will also appear on the cover of Vanidades and sourcing it from YouTube and LiveJournal is against WP:BLP#Reliable sources. I have removed it but it keeps getting reinserted with those 2 references. If someone can find a reliable source to back up the claim of the upcoming cover, that would be great. Otherwise, I would suggest to remove the mention of the appearance on the cover until it gets published which should be very easy to reference. SWik78 (talk) 14:24, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, a reliable source is needed if the info is to be included. There's also WP:CBALL. delldot talk 07:33, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

How do you measure or qualify as "full" latina?[edit]

The whole idea of being "full" latina is really subjective, & potentially racist. We don't know if Jaslene has purely Native ancestors, she could have African & European ancestors. It is highly unlikely she is not mixed. I think her being called full or pure Latina should be removed in order to be respectful of ALL latinos; native, afro, euro & all mixtures.Yoyodre I'm not lazy, I just lack motivation. (talk) 20:50, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Although the effort to source everything is appreciated...please note that forum/blog posts are NOT good sources. SKS2K6 (talk) 21:10, 31 October 2008 (UTC)


Top Model section seriously lacking[edit]

All thats written under the Top Model section of her article is the tiniest little paragraph (2 sentences) about how she tried out for Cycle 7 and didn't make it and then the quote from after she won Cycle 8. It doesn't mention anything about Cycle 8...not even that she won. You could mention things like how she was perceived by the other girls in the house/the judges/the fans, challenge wins, the fact she was never in the bottom two, etc. Since the show is how she gained her fame and how most people would be likely to recognize her, this section is important. Someone please work on this. MarkMc1990 (talk) 19:11, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

It sounds like you know quite a bit about it. Why not give it a shot yourself? Thanks for your help! Plastikspork (talk) 19:54, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, I really don't know that much (I only saw a few episodes of that cycle)...just the basic statistics, which I added just to give the section some substance. It could probably still use some bulking up from someone more knowledgable on the ANTM world than myself, though. MarkMc1990 (talk) 03:27, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Birth place??[edit]

Why the infobox lists Jaslene as being born in Puerto Rico and in the article it says Chicago?? Which place is the right one?--58.62.42.233 (talk) 11:02, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Jaslene's Birthday[edit]

I surprized that someone would cite youtube as a factual source for anything. Both the Fashion Model Directory and the Internet Movie Database show May 29 as her birthday. I trust them far more than youtube. 68.100.39.123 (talk) 14:49, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
