Ja’mie: Private School Girl, The Countdown Begins!

By MJ Snow on Oct 22, 2013 to Chris Lilley

With just a month to go until the HBO premiere of Ja’mie: Private School Girl, we thought we’d revisit some of the best Ja’mie moments we’ve seen so far! Whether attending public school in Summer Heights High or competing to become Australian of the Year on We Can Be Heroes, Ja’mie always has valuable life lessons to teach us all. So, without further ado, let the countdown begin!


10. Making New Friends

Starting out at a new school can be scary and awkward, but not for Ja’mie! She shows us just how easy it can be to fit in!

9. Struggles with Self Confidence

Even those of us who are hot have moments of low self esteem. So random!

8. Engage in Charitable Works

Nothing feels better than helping those who are less fortunate than you. Plus, it looks great on your college applications.

7. We All Have Our Crosses to Bear

People think that hot girls have it easy. So not true! It’s harder for hotties, just ask Ja’mie!

6. License to Slut

It’s a well known fact that public schools are overflowing with sluts and Ja’mie will most certainly become a part of that statistic.

5. Formals are for Fornicating

Don’t give them ammunition to talk behind your back. Sex it up at the formal… and make sure that everyone knows what (and who) you did.

4. Understand the Harsh Realities of Life

There are many terrible things that could happen to a high school girl. Among the most dangerous: lunchtime rapists, lesbians and being denied a formal.

3. Tell it Like it is

It’s best to be prepared for the unpleasant things in life. Being comfortable talking about the pedophilia issue in public schools gives Ja’mie the ability to stay safe… and save herself for the year sevens.

2. Accept Your Lot in Life

We don’t ask to be born hot, however, we must play the hand that has been dealt to us. It’s a difficult life, but as hot girls, we have a responsibility to those around us: to give the fugly girls someone to look up to, and the boys someone to wank over.

1. Hot Girls are Easily Aroused

It could happen anywhere, at any time. Hot girls can be aroused when they least expect it. Always be on the lookout, as that would be the best time to get with us. Even if you’re a year seven. Or a lesbian.
