Birthday: September 17, 1980
Hometown: London, Ontario, Canada

Part-time store associate. Part-time death-defying stuntwoman. Jolene has brought a little girl power to the motocross world by joining the crew on MTV's popular Nitro Circus show, a gig she juggles alongside working in one of Calgary's largest bike shops. Now she's bringing her smooth moves to THQ's bestselling offroad racing series MX vs. ATV Reflex. She may not have time to check in to regular sessions of Modern Warfare 2, but she's a self-professed old-school gamer (Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt and, of course, Tetris) and relishes the fact that she's going to be able to kick your ass around a muddy track come this December when the game is released. Let's see what else she thinks...

On riding dirt bikes while other girls were playing with Barbie dolls..
. "It just came naturally for me. I actually did have Barbies too, but they were just so I could get her on a date with my GI Joe action figures. My mom wanted me to be a figure skater and then a ballerina, but, obviously, that didn't happen."

On hanging around with dudes all day...
"Guys are generally more simple. You just kind of chill and hang out. It's relaxing and we get to do a lot of really, really cool stuff. I'm just the girl at the right place and time."

On dethroning Princess Peach as the No. 1 hottie in videogameland...
"I don't think I'm at her level yet; I'm still pretty low on the totem pole. But, who knows? We might get a Nitro Circus game going and then we'll have a more serious competition!"

MX vs. ATV Reflex hits stores on December 1 for the PS3, Xbox 360, PSP and DS.
