When Mac and Charlie were trying to make black friends to try and appear less racist, they went to a cultural center at a local university. There, a game of dominoes was being played. Charlie was asked if he wanted to play a game, which he flamboyantly won. As they were leaving, Janell gave him her number.
Charlie later called her and arranged a date at The Waitress's coffee shop. He picked her up and took her to the shop, but ignored her and tried to brag about her to The Waitress, hoping to prove he was not racist. The Waitress then informed Janell of Charlie's scheme and she punched him in the face.
Later, Dee brought Janell to Paddy's under the guise of bringing her to meet her brother Terrell, but really to anger Charlie. There, Mac managed to confuse the black slang term "sister" with the familial term "sister", embarrassing everyone. ("The Gang Gets Racist")
- Janell is portrayed by Telisha Shaw and can be seen in the movies Step Up 2: The Streets, How to Make Love to a Woman, and Dirty.
