Early Life 

Jenny Alexis Ryan was born on the 2nd of April, 1982, in Bolton. Her first quiz show appearance was on University Challenge, helping the University of Leeds to reach the semi-finals in 2003.

She found further success as a member of the team, ‘The Gamblers’, on Only Connect, who won the third series of the show.



Ryan also appeared on Mastermind in 2006, choosing the American television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer as her specialist subject, and featured in both series of the spin-off quiz show ‘Are You an Egghead?’ in 2008 and 2009.

Ryan wrote questions for the pilot episode of ‘The Chase’ in 2009. She joined the show in 2015, making her debut appearance on 2 September.

Her nickname on the show is “The Vixen”, in reference to her red hair and ponytail; Walsh came up with the name and the producers liked it since “vixens are notoriously clever and cunning”. She is also referred to as “The Bolton Brainiac” for her place of birth.

In 2019, Ryan appeared on the 14th series of ‘Celebrity MasterChef’. In October 2019, she began competing in ‘The X Factor: Celebrity’. While she was initially eliminated before the live shows, the heavy criticism from viewers led to her being asked back to join the live shows.

As of February 2023, Jenny Ryan’s net worth is $4 Million. 



Here are some of the best highlights of Jenny Ryan’s career:

  • The Chase (Game Show, 2009-) 
  • Are You An Egghead? (Quiz-Show, 2008-2009)

“It’s been a lot of fun. This is the point which it’s got very daunting. It wasn’t so bad recording episodes and trying to get into the swing of things, but now it’s out in the open and you get to see people’s reactions it’s a little bit scary!” – Jenny Ryan 

“Well actually the first person I had a good chat with about nicknames was Bradley, and he said that he saw me being something predatory – something to do with animals – and he actually asked me: ‘How old do you have to be to be a cougar?” – Jenny Ryan 

“I was watching episodes on YouTube or on ITV Player and they thankfully sent me some previously used questions so I was having real Chase questions fired at me by family members. So that’s been the best practice really.” – Jenny Ryan 

“Yeah! One of my previous incarnations is as a question writer, so I’d worked on shows like The Weakest Link and a couple of very short-lived ITV series. There was one called It’s Not What You Know with Chris Tarrant, and one called Spin Star which Bradley presented.” – Jenny Ryan
