Who is Janelle Pierzina's husband?

Before stepping into the roles of wife and mother, Janelle's love life took us on a wild ride — including a "showmance" with the notorious Big Brother player, Dr. Will Kirby. Amidst various flings, however, it appears Janelle struck gold with her husband, Jess DeSanto.

Their love story began long before the wedding bells chimed – a whopping 12 years, to be exact. Janelle and Jess first crossed paths at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. They were friends, but their connection deepened over the years until they decided to take the plunge, which led to an engagement in 2009 and exchanging vows in 2010.

"As a self-motivated workaholic, I have a little different outlook on real estate," Janelle's bio reads. "Not only do I get results for my clients, but I also work hard to turn buying or selling a house into a pleasant process. I live and breathe real estate and do whatever it takes to represent my clients."

Jess DeSanto works at DeSanto Investments group with his brother.

According to Screen Rant, Jess is the owner and operator of the AmericInn in Apple Valley, Minn., a town in proximity to Janelle and her family's residence. The AmericInn is part of his investment group, Desanto Investments.
