Despite being in magazines and music videos, Jessica Burciaga's popularity is largely due to her early adoption of Twitter, Myspace and her own website, the now debunked Idreakofjessie.com. (Askmen.com)
Burciaga's path to becoming a centerfold and pin-up girl began in somewhat of a round about way. While attending high school, she says her wardrobe was too provocative. "I think they made up a new dress code policy just for me!" she told hiphopmodels.net, "Everything from showing too much cleavage and to my ripped jeans below my butt cheeks, skirts too short and tops that showed too much tummy." (Bleacher Report)
After graduation she enrolled in a local community college, Burciaga got a job at a Hooter's in Anaheim, CA and began taking Sports Broadcasting lessons in Huntington Beach. She says that while at Hooters a local photographer had asked her to take pictures of her. After of years of him consistently asking, she conceded and met him on the beach for the photo shoot.
The photographer was so angry that she didn't wear a thong to the shoot that he gave her the photos and said he would never work with her again. Sometime later her brother, Blake, saw a call-out in Stuff Magazine for models. The two picked from the photos and before she knew it she was featured in the magazine's "Neighborhood Knockout" section, followed by music videos and appearances in the likes of Maxim and other men's interest publications.

On modeling, she told Import Tuner Magazine, "I've been very lucky to get a lot of modeling work lately, although it can be tiring. To me, the best part is traveling, meeting new people and seeing my work in a magazine. I don't hate anything about my job because it's so easy! The only bad thing is that I think I'm lazy now. I've tried to have a normal job with a time schedule, but I just can't do it."
Burciaga says that she wanted to find a balance between sexy and cute that would "make men love me and women love me, too." She claims this attitude and her ability to "make you smile" are the reasons for her success."(Jessicaburciaga.com)
In 2011, Burciaga was alleged to be the mistress of Los Angeles Lakers' superstar Kobe Bryant. Almost immediately, through her twitter feed, she denied these allegations saying that she didn't even know the person, implying Kobe Bryant, whom she was linked to. (bleacher report)
An avid Tweeter, Burciaga has over 100,000 followers on her account and regularly posts intimate cell-phone photos of herself and also uses twitter to connect with her fans.
