Jenny Wu: A Good, Bad, & Fab Woman

member interview   |   By Privy Concierge

Gallery All

Jenny Wu is a force to be reckoned with. So much, in fact, that the Privy member, fashion lawyer and blogger of good, bad, & fab  was eyed by CBS and subsequently cast on The Amazing Race. This season, The Amazing Race has put a hefty spin on the usual partner dynamic that so many of its viewers identify with today: each contestant on the show is set up with a random partner of the opposite gender. The gorgeous and intelligent fashionista flexed some serious muscle this season by roughing it out in different challenges and navigating difficult communication with her teammate.

We had the privilege of interviewing this good, bad, and fab woman about her life leading up to this monumental moment on national television, her thoughts on love and dating, and what she’s up to next:

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I was born in Shanghai and moved to the U.S. with my parents at age seven. While growing up in Arcadia, my parents were strict and stressed the importance of education. So I grew up thinking I had to either be a doctor, accountant or lawyer. And since I was horrible at math, I decided to take the law path. I went to USC for both undergrad and law. After graduation, I became in-house counsel at a fashion company working on IP and contract law. To alleviate the stress of my day job, I started good, bad, & fab-- a fashion blog. It took off and soon I was working with some of my favorite fashion and beauty brands creating sponsored content, making beauty and fashion videos, and hosting in-store events. About two years ago, I decided to bite the bullet and quit my day job to blog full-time. And it was the best decision I've ever made!

How did you end up applying for The Amazing Race?

I sent in an audition tape with a girlfriend of mine. We are both huge Amazing Race fans and love traveling and experiencing new adventures. After submitting the video, they called me back the next day and said they were pairing up strangers for the new season and wanted me to move forward in the audition process. I called my friend, got her blessing, and then went through a few more rounds of auditions
