In late March 2024, Jenn chatted with Entertainment Tonight about shaking things up and ditching the Bachelor mansion for her first night as the Bachelorette.

"I think what I've been trying to tell myself [is I'm the] first Asian Bachelorette, first PA student, we're really breaking the mold this season," she said. "I feel like a new mansion is the perfect way to break the mold... I'm gonna bless it with some really good vibes."
