She has a firery quick wit and tom boy attitude so she can handle the boys on the set. Quote: My parents may disown me because I found my way into television. They find TV a dark hole abyss. After working here, I think I may be on that event horizon.
CHA LI, Chinese Actress/Foodie
Cha Li is an film actress who stumbled on the set for an uncomfortable interview in Episode 52. Afterward, the hosts challenged her to a noodle eating contest. As a result, this spunky diner started her own segment: EATING OUT CHA LI. Quote: I never thought eating food would have a mountain of returns.

Quote: Television was my babysitter when I was a young girl. Now, as a young woman I see Television as a potential long term boyfriend . . . if he is kind and rich to me."
