You might know JessiKate as your favorite Monster Girl while watching Supercross or PBR, or from her TikTok videos, or maybe you know her as Miss Utah from the Miss America and Miss USA Pageant; but now you will know her as the violinist who kicked off the 2023 PBR season in style. Monster Energy’s very own Monster Girl, JessiKate, will take the stage with her violin this Friday, January 6th at Madison Square Garden to perform the National Anthem for PBR’s Opening Night.
We sat down with the beautiful and talented JessiKate to learn about her journey as a musician and as a Monster Energy Girl, and how her two world's combined.
“Growing up, I watched Winter X Games, Supercross, and PBR. I watched all of these events with my dad. I remember sitting in there on Saturdays and Sundays and watching and being like, 'Oh my gosh, that's so cool. Oh, wait, there's really pretty girls up there too…'”
JessiKate started her Monster Girl career in 2019, and her sights were set on attending Winter X Games. “I'm from Utah originally. I grew up snowboarding, snowmobiling, and sledding with my family. I love all the winter sports. [Going to X Games as a Monster Girl for the first time] was so exciting and surreal.”
For the first few years, JessiKate traveled sporadically to Monster Events. She became a Monster Girl because “Growing up, I really did not fit in anywhere. I bounced around to a lot of different places. I'm into music, I did pageantry, I did a lot of service and other things, to find where I fit and find my place. At Monster, we bleed green. Everybody is so connected and it's really a friendship that lasts forever.” Now, she works almost every weekend, and has created a community with the event crew, athletes, and Girls that will last a lifetime.
JessiKate found a space that she loves. Now, she gets to combine her passions of music and being a Monster Girl into one.
