Who is Jaime Edmondson?
Jaime Faith Edmondson was born on the 30th of December 1978 in Bartow, Florida. She spent the first five years of her life with her dad in Georgia. She thereafter re-joined her mother and stepfather in South Florida. Edmondson grew up in a family of police officers. Most of the shindigs she attended also involved law enforcement, and it became the only occupation that she knew. The young girl, therefore, decided that she wanted to become a police officer, and ultimately a secret agent. In order to realise these lofty dreams, Edmondson completed her high school diploma at North East High school, Oakland Park, Florida. She subsequently studied criminal justice at Florida Atlantic University and graduated in 2002.
Edmondson’s Career Progression
On graduating college, Edmondson initially worked as a cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins. She spent a short period in this role before utilizing her degree to land a job with the Boca Raton Police Department. The media personality spent two years as a police officer during which she mostly worked the night shift. She later decided to quit the force due to continued ribbing over her past work as a cheerleader. Edmondson re-joined the Miami Dolphins in 2004 and spent the next six years cheering them throughout the country. She would later win the award for the NFL Pro Bowl cheerleader of the year in 2007.
In the midst of cheering on the Dolphins, Edmondson convinced one of her colleagues, Cara Rosenthal, to join her in applying for The Amazing Race. The Amazing Race is a long-running TV show which features 11 teams, of two persons each, as they race across the world to perform various mental and physical tasks. Each completed task unlocks the next location, and the first team to reach the final destination wins the grand prize.
Edmondson and Rosenthal competed on the 14th season of The Amazing Race and finished in an impressive 3rd position. The pair also tried their luck on the 18th season of the show but could only finish 9th. Jaime Edmondson has since moved on from cheering and is now a career model, actress, and radio host.

In February 2018, Jaime Edmondson and two other models, Heather Young and Eva Pepaj, filed a suit against a Tampa strip club known as Déjà Vu. The club had appropriated images of all three women, in various provocative poses, and posted them on their websites and social media accounts. These images were used to promote their showing of various sporting activities including the 2014 Super Bowl.
The club also used them to promote a St Patrick’s Day party that they held in March 2014. In their lawsuit, the three ladies alleged that Déjà Vu had used their images to lure customers without giving them an iota of compensation.
