Detentionaire Wiki

Lee and Jenny in detention working together to solve the book.

This article features the relationship between Lee Ping and Jenny Jergens.


Although Lee and Jenny had very little interaction up until Season 3, it can be assumed that they had been friends in elementary school, as Jenny (and the other outcasts) had been shown to attend Lee's tenth birthday party alongside Camillio Martinez.

Throughout the third season of the show, Jenny develops a crush on Lee while being jealous of his relationship with Tina, creating a love triangle between the three. Unlike Tina-who is especially flirtatious with Lee-Jenny is able to keep her crush on him hidden. Despite this, however, the crush is one sided because Lee still has a crush on Tina.

Jenny apologised to Lee for accidently messing up his relationship with Tina.

Jenny's crush on Lee sprouted when Lee agreed to help them get a whisker despite the fact that Jenny steals his key. Jenny isn't used to people accepting her and caring for the feelings of her or her friends, that is why she is so shocked when Cam wants to sit with them. Lee's choice touches her heart and that is how the crush began.
