Who is Jimena Sanchez?
Jimena Sanchez was born in Mexico City, on 28 September 1982 – her zodiac sign is Libra and she holds Mexican nationality. She is a TV show host, model and a social media star, best known for the work she has done for the TV station Fox Sports.
Early life and education
Jimena was raised in Veracruz alongside her siblings by their father who was a truck driver, and her mother who worked as a cashier at a local supermarket.
She became interested in playing soccer at a very early age, and joined her elementary school’s team not long after enrolling at the school.
Jimena also dreamed about becoming a model or an actress, and practiced her acting skills with the school’s drama club. She enrolled at a local high school in 1996, and during her sophomore year started playing soccer for her school’s team, while also practicing her acting skills and appearing in nearly all the plays performed there.
Jimena got to launch her modelling career during her final year, and thus upon matriculating in 2000, chose not to enroll at a college but to focus on her career.
Jimena gained recognition after she and her best friend launched a photo blog on the internet entitled “Mad Mamacitas”, which featured sexy pictures of the two in which they were nearly naked, and had their breasts and buttocks in focus – what made Jimena really popular was her resemblance to the social media star and TV personality Kim Kardashian.
This led to Jimena being invited to work for the Mexican sports magazine “Record”, and after less than a year with them, she got to start working for Fox Deportes.
She is currently in charge of hosting the show “Lo Mejor De For Sports” airing on Fox Sports 2, while she is serving as the writer of “Medio Tiempo”.

Jimena also played Karla in the short action drama film “Pelea De Gallos”, written and directed by Gabriel Pontones, and which starred Dagoberto Gama, Eligio Melendez and Hector Norman. It follows Eduardo and Aldo who are constantly arguing about who is better between the two of them.
Jimena is a big star on Instagram, as she is followed by more than 8.1 million people, and has uploaded over 2,500 pictures most of which have her body in focus. She has been active on Twitter since August 2012, and has gathered more than 110,000 followers although she doesn’t really tweet.
Her Facebook page is followed by more than seven million people, while Jimena is also active on TikTok but has attracted just 70 fans.
Love life and husband
Jimena is very secretive, and prefers to keep her personal matters to herself, however, it’s known that she was once in a relationship with Faisy, a Mexican actor. Faisy was born on 19 September 1979 under the zodiac sign Virgo, and the two met when Jimena had a chance to appear in his TV program “Vengache Pa’ca” – Faisy is also known for having portrayed the lead character Luis Alberto in the series “Renta Congelada”.
The two dated for less than a year before splitting ways for unknown reasons.
