Jenelle Browyn Moreno (born November 25, 1985 in Orange, California) is an American Model and best known to Game Show Audiences as Briefcase Model #17 on the NBC Game Show Deal or No Deal.
A native of Southern California, Jenelle Moreno knew at an early age she wanted to spend her career in front of the camera and was a natural at it right off the bat.
While attending High School, she was discovered by a major Hollywood agent, and the very next day, she booked an eight-page spread in Teen magazine and from there, she spent nearly every weekday in L.A., either working or going to auditions. Soon, a powerhouse agent from Paris came out to meet her, and less than two months later, after graduating from high school, Jenelle was on a plane on her way to Paris.
Moreno spent months working in Europe and eventually longed for a slower-paced lifestyle, so she went back home to take a break for a while and after two years of missing the modeling world, she returned to L.A. with a vengeance and again, her first day back, booked the cover of Best Body magazine.
Since making a comeback in the modeling world, Jenelle has graced the covers of various magazines and has appeared in numerous national ads including: Kawasaki motorcycles, was featured in an eight-page spread for FHM Spain and travelling aboard. Her impressive background in the modeling world and countless photographs, landed her a spot as one of the 26 Briefcase Models on the TV Game Show Deal or No Deal as the show returned to the airwaves in February 2006 after a one week trial run that previous December.
During the first couple weeks of it's first official season, Jenelle stood beside Briefcase #22 and then a few weeks in, she moves down to Briefcase #17 as her permanent residence where she would remain until the show's end in May 2009.
When she's not working or flying around the world, Jenelle spends time working out at the gym, out shopping, or just at home outside of Los Angeles, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather.
