Luk, 32, Actor | Wendy
Lee, 24, Actress
Dating Couple, Hong Kong
Having grown up in New York, Wendy has always been a huge fan of both The Amazing Race Asia (TARA) and the US series, so when applications opened up for Season 4, she did not hesitate. In fact, her plans to return to NYC were put on hold because of TARA!
Despite her sweet demeanour, Wendy has a fiercely independent streak. At age 20, she quit school and moved to Hong Kong all by herself, to pursue her dream as an actress. Her gutsy efforts have paid off for she came out top 10 in the Miss Hong Kong 2006 pageant and has since appeared in several local TV dramas. Fellow racer Alan has also been an actor since 2001 and the two met while they were working on a TV drama. They have been together for a year but their relationship has been volatile at times. “One fight was especially memorable in particular because the Police came and tried to resolve it,” recalls Wendy.
So why did Alan agree to join the race? “Life is short, so why not,” he grins. Looks like this will be one spontaneous team who lives for the moment!
