The friendship between Jimmy Brooks and Paige Michalchuk began sometime prior to the first season of Degrassi: The Next Generation. Jimmy and Paige naturally became friends as a result of being two very popular students, and having a host of mutual friends such as Spinner Mason, Hazel Aden, Ashley Kerwin, Terri MacGregor and Marco Del Rossi. At one point, Jimmy was in a long-term relationship with Hazel (Paige's best friend) while Paige was in a reasonably lengthy relationship with Spinner (Jimmy's best friend).
