She told news.com.au: “Growing up in a sporty family, I was carted off on weekends to watch brothers run up and down a field.
“Then one day it all changed. I started looking at my brothers’ teammates in a different light.
“It was around the age where boys’ voices go funny. Where did those muscles come from? Why am I feeling all tingly inside?”
She joked: “Sigh. Yep puberty turned me shallow.”
Jana added: “They would grunt, I would giggle, and before you knew it, we would end up on a date.”
The host recalled a time where she dated a man in the industry which taught her that professional athletes weren’t her cup of tea.
Speaking about a rugby player she once dated, the host explained: “It turns out, he was quite a ladies man.
“He was in Canberra for a game and a girl sent me a Facebook message to say she had hooked up with him during that weekend.
She added “As with any moderately famous person, footballers are the source of much gossip.
“I’m not saying it’s them, because generally, it’s not. This really is a case of ‘it’s not you, it’s me’.
“In fact, I’d go as far as to say they are targeted.
While the social influencer and Blogger who revealed she had to adopt a commando style to delete he nude pictures from a former boyfriend in the past would not dream of becoming a WAG, she nonetheless advised those who still want to be to note that they are not the only one attracted to any athlete.
