Jennifer Hawkins was born in Holmesville, Australia in 1983. She went to West Wallsend High School. She is one of four children. She uses to be a cheerleader for the Newcastle Knights rugby league team and the Hunter Pirates basketball team. She also worked as a choreographer for a dance team that toured Australia specializing in ballet and hip-hop.

Jennifer started dating international model and former carpenter Jake Wall. She was also chosen to be the guest presenter of The Great Outdoors. In May 2005 Jennifer was signed by personal hygiene and skincare brand Lux as its face of Australia and New Zealand.

 She was in the fourth season of the Australian dancing with the stars. On the 15th of February 2006 she took part in a celebrity version of Deal or No Deal called Dancing with the Deal.

She says: “My life since Miss Universe has been changed a lot. I have grown so much as a result of my travels and all my work with HIV/AIDS programs. I’m incredibly grateful for the things I’ve experienced”

 “I hate the whole tall-poppy syndrome. I don’t want people to think it’s all gone to my head, because it isn’t. That’s why I’m a little bit stressed, because in the back of my head I’m like, ‘When, when, when?”

Over the past few years she has been on various magazine covers such as Australian Women’s Weekly, OK! Cleo, Ralph and FHM.

She donates a lot of her time for many worthwhile charities including Sydney Cancer Foundation, The Sydney Children’s Hospital and lots more. She enjoys telling people about all of her experiences to date.

She is now a beauty queen, model, television presenter, the face of Australian department store Myer, and is known as Miss Universe in 2004.
