Cher Tenbush

Cheryl Beth Tenbush is best known for kicking serious ass on Season 2 of the reality TV series Beauty and the Geek, teaming with “geek” Josh to win the competition in pretty much a landslide (just take a look here at how many of the weekly challenges she won). It was almost unfair because she was clearly more intelligent than the other “beauties” on the show, but then again would you expect anything less from the Asian girl? :) And she was memorably hot: Complex Magazine recently named her the 25th hottest woman to appear on reality TV. A highlight reel of her appearance on the show can be seen here, and a couple of post-show Q&A’s can be read here and here.

Since appearing on the show, she has worked on multiple projects, such as hosting the web series Cewebrity and being a style guru for the now-defunct Honeyshed online video shopping channel. She has also appeared in several movies, most recently in the film Father vs. Son (check out her IMDb profile for more details).

Cher is half Korean, a quarter Irish, and a quarter German, so you can add her to the list of lovely Korean+Irish ladies to be featured on this site, or if you prefer, the list of half-Asian+Irish+German ones (which includes fellow ass-kicking reality competition star April Wilkner).

Check out Cher’s Twitter @chertenbush, her YouTube channel, and her old Xanga blog. Also check out her Wikipedia entry and this unofficial fan site.

Jessica Michibata juega al tenis

Jessica Michibata

I found this while researching yesterday’s post and thought it deserved an entry of its own. I don’t know if Jessica Michibata actually plays tennis, but she looks like a natural on the tennis court (and on the beach) in this photoset.

The title of this post is dedicated to:
(1) Jessica’s Argentinian father (of partial Spanish descent), and
(2) whoever it was at my high school that used my Spanish textbook before me, who found the phrase “jugar al tenis” (“to play tennis”) and overwrote the T with a P. Still cracks me up.

Amee Enger

Amee Enger

Here’s another entry inspired by a reader suggestion (thanks Ken!)

Amee Enger is a half-Filipina and half-Norwegian model. At age 19, she was a Top 10 finalist in the South Florida casting call for Cycle 9 of America’s Next Top Model in 2007, but somehow didn’t qualify to appear on the show despite her ludicrous hotness.

More recently, she had some sexy photos taken for Maxim by Yann Dandois, was named Zoo Weekly’s Babe of the Day, and was featured in an Asics marketing campaign photographed by Ronnie Fieg.

Amee is on Facebook and MySpace.

As an aside, I’d like to point out that you can site search for pairs of ethnicities by entering a URL that combines two tags with a plus sign: http://half-asians.com/tag/ethnicity1+ethnicity2. For example, you might compare the Filipina+Norwegian mix versus the Korean+Irish mix to try to determine which is hotter. Or try your own combinations and see if you can come up with an even hotter mix.

Kate Beckinsale

Yes, Kate Beckinsale is part-Asian: her father’s mother’s father was Burmese, which makes her one-eighth Burmese (and seven-eighths English).

Margaret Ying Drake

Margaret Ying Drake is a film, theater, and voice-over actress from New York City. She is the first lady to be featured here on the site as the result of a reader suggestion.

A few awesome things about Margaret:
* She is trained in judo (by US Olympic judo coach Jason Morris).
* She is trained in bellydance (by Reyna Alcala).
* She has a twin sister Julia who is also trained in bellydance.

The two sisters perform in a belly dancing troupe that they formed with a friend, called Jewels of the Orient. After the jump, I’ve posted a video from one of their performances in Central Park.

Margaret’s latest acting role is in the independent film Oh Sophia, in which she performs an “epic dance sequence”. The movie recently completed filming and is slated for release in 2011.

Margaret is on Facebook and has a Facebook fan page. Also check out her IMDB entry, her Actors Access resume, her NYCastings profile, and her Model Mayhem profile. And check out this interview where she discusses her theater education at Skidmore College.

Justene, Misa, Natalia, and Sudana’s Adventures in Singapore

Misa Campo, Sudana Pa, Natalia Marie, and Justene Jaro

Mixed Asian models Misa Campo (@realmisacampo), Sudana Pa (@sudanaxmama), Natalia Marie (@msnataliamarie), and Justene Jaro (@justenejaro) recently spent a week together in Singapore.

They visited Buddhist temples, phallic sculptures, and places with funny English names. For fun they drew moustaches on their fingers and invented a language where all the words end in “pa”. One night they chilled at the hospital-themed Clinic Bar, another night they partied dressed as animals. And they encountered giant life-size bottles of liquor and cans of soda.

Here are some photos from their trip, courtesy of Natalia’s Plixi and Sudana’s TwitPic.
