Jasmine learned that she had been chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra a full five months before it was announced in October 2016:
It was so hard to keep this a secret because it's something so exciting that you want to share with everybody, so for me to keep my mouth shut I literally had to bite my tongue every time I wanted to say it.

Jasmine's favorite Victoria's Secret Fashion Show as the 2006 one, when she was just starting out in modeling. She loved the moment "when Justin Timberlake was performing and he did 'Sexyback' and Gisele walks out. That's my favorite ever!"
