Q. I know in the past that you've exposed the identity of some hot chicks in TV commercials. I was wondering if you knew who's that hot chick who jumps around in the Nationwide Insurance commercials? - Tony, Las Vegas.

Tony, you're right. We've done
articles in the past on the Genie Girl in the DIRECTV Genie commercials and the comely brunette in the AT&T family spots. But now we will tackle your question of who's that 'hot chick' in the Nationwide commercials.

And the answer is...Jana Kramer!


Jana Kramer. That's who.

In the Nationwide commercials, which seem to air every other minute, Jana wears a skin-tight, black leather outfit while jumping around a darkened apartment, replacing items that were destroyed in a fictional fire. The commercials have achieved a certain cult following, thanks in no small part to Jana's fine form while playing the acrobatic insurance agent. Of course, a stunt doubt was used for Jana's flips and flops, but it doesn't seem to matter to the thousands of fans on the Internet who have sung her praises on message boards.

And speaking of singing, Jana is an accomplished country music singer as well as an actress and model. Her 2012 song, Why Ya Wanna, reached #52 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #3 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs list. The song appeared on her one and only album, the self-titled Jana Kramer.

Jana, who has been featured in Nationwide commercials since 2013, has also starred in such TV shows as Friday Night Lights, One Tree Hill and Entourage.
