In a talk with The Stuff, Jenny revealed another reason for her self-proclaimed nickname and said,
Secondly, because I’ve always had a love of animals, and this name gives me free rein to be a bit flirty. It allows me to be a bit wild if I need to be.

Scrabble Got Jenny Ryan Scratching Her Head On The Chase!
Jenny who has already had a whole time keeping up with her profile in The Chase faced another round of mockery from the host Bradley Walsh as she struggled correctly answer many questions on 6th November episode.
It all came down to a question about the game of scrabble in which she had to choose a word that scores the fewest point among three options. Among 'snap,' 'crackle,' and 'pop,' she answered pop while the correct answer remains snap.
While the audience gushed at her ‘easy mistake’, Bradley boasted his knowledge on scrabble.
P is three, so that’s six. So snap is six, pop is seven.
The explanation followed Bradley smirking Jenny to which she responded with a scowl.
Alright, you’ve outsmarted me this time Brad, well done.
Although she managed to get a hold of the track later in the game, she was not happy about the mockery.
