Lately, it seems as though an influx of the individuals who participated in the infamous January 6th Capitol riot are finally beginning to face the repercussions of their actions on that fateful day.
Of those to finally get their just desserts is the now-infamous Jenna Ryan — a Texas real estate agent turned Capitol insurrectionist who gained notoriety after proclaiming that she wouldn’t see any legal ramifications of her participation in the siege because she’s “blonde and white.”
Turns out, she was painfully wrong in that assertion.
Ryan was ultimately charged and sentenced to 60 days in prison for her participation in the violent January 6th riot. Directly following her sentencing, she was clearly unhappy that her skin and hair color hadn’t saved her ass as she’d expected. However, she eventually seemed to be trying to make the best out of the situation, when she claimed that she would use her jail time to do some yoga and lose some weight.

But a few prison consultants ultimately weighed in after Ryan’s sentence officially began, and they had a good feeling that Jenna was in for a pretty painful reality check over the course of her jail stay.
The 51-year-old TX real estate agent was sentenced for her crimes back in November and was originally scheduled to report to prison to serve her sentence in January of 2022.
However, a report from the Dallas Observer revealed that Ryan, who recently announced a new book deal, reported to the Bryan Federal Prison Camp in Texas before Christmas of 2021 had even rolled around.
Florida-based prison consultant Daniel Wise believes there was a motive to Jenna’s madness when it came to surrendering to her sentencing far earlier than what was required.
“I have to imagine that there was a motive behind this, and your motive probably is: You want to go in there, now you can write in your book what it was like to be in prison for Christmas,” Wise stated in a YouTube video on his channel. “I mean I think people are going to see right through the smokescreen. I don’t think you’re going to get a lot of sympathy.”
Another prison consultant, Holli Coulman, also weighed in, saying that Ryan had contacted her to ask if she could opt to be held in solitary confinement rather than the prison’s general population, as she was fearful she may be assaulted with a “lock in a sock,” per the Observer’s report.
“But Ryan eventually decided that she’d do just fine in the general population, claiming that she knows how to make friends with anyone,” Coulman said in the local report. “[Ryan] goes, ‘I grew up in the streets,'” Coleman added with a laugh, per the Observer.
“Regardless, Ryan has big plans for her time in prison. In videos posted to her TikTok account, she claimed to look forward to doing lots of yoga. She also said it would be ‘worth going to prison’ if she manages to lose 30 pounds thanks to a new workout regimen and diet, free from alcohol and junk food.”
An additional guest on Wise’s YouTube video, DOCTV813, said he doesn’t expect prison officials will appreciate Ryan’s attitude or TikTok videos about the ordeal.
“With her doing what she’s doing, they’re going to look at that and they’re going to make her time hard because they’re going to give her a reality check,” the guest stated. “And she’s not going to lose weight; she’s going to probably gain weight because of how they cook everything in there with starches and all that. I don’t think she realizes what she’s about to walk into.”
