After graduating from the University of California at Berkeley, ALLAN WU soon realized that his career would veer far away from his Pre-Med major and biotechnology background. Little did he know that his career in entertainment would propel him all the way to Asia even after modeling for the prestigious Ford Model Agency in Los Angeles, California.
Once Allan decided to “set up shop” in Asia, he was immediately invited to become an MTV (Music Television) VJ in Taiwan with stints on MTV Taiwan’s Party Zone, International Top 20 and Most Wanted. Not to rest on his laurels, Allan later moved to Hong Kong to focus more on his acting and was featured in numerous television commercials regionally along the way.
In line with Allan’s desire to experience more of Asia both from a personal and professional perspective, he took Singapore by storm when he first dropped in over seven years ago. In addition to hosting and presenting, Allan is also one of the most sought after actors on screen and has starred in an extensive list of productions both in English and Mandarin. Never one to back down from a dare, Allan even found himself consuming maggots, worms, stinky beetles, and rotten fish eyes on NBC’s Fear Factor in the United States.
Establishing himself as Singapore’s one and only hunkalicious action hero, Allan landed the highly coveted spot as the Host of AXN’s The Amazing Race Asia several years ago. With Season Four of The Amazing Race Asia ready to take flight once again, there’s no telling how far Allan will soar–only the sky’s the limit.
