|Host of||The Amazing Race Asia, China Rush, Jisu Qianjin|
Allan Wu was the host of The Amazing Race Asia and The Amazing Race: China Rush, and is currently the host of The Amazing Race: Jisu Qianjin. Wu was born in California, USA to Chinese immigrant parents from Shenyang, China. His first language was actually Mandarin as his parents spoke it at home.
Wu appeared on Fear Factor, placing second, and then moved to Hong Kong to become an actor. He was hired as a VJ for MTV Taiwan. After this, he moved to Singapore and began acting in Chinese dramas. Some of these include Beautiful Connection, The Unbeatables III, True Heroes, C.I.D. and House of Joy, as well as the feature film I Do I Do.
Wu was then hired as the host of the first international version of the race, The Amazing Race Asia. He was praised for offering a similar performance to Phil Keoghan, but also offering his own unique spin on hosting the show. He is very adept at making puns.
Later, Wu became the host of The Amazing Race: China Rush. His knowledge of Mandarin allowed him to communicate with Chinese-speaking contestants, as well as presenting the show in Chinese to DragonTV. When host Andy On of The Amazing Race: Jisu Qianjin could no longer fill his roll, Wu stepped in to become the host for episode 3 and onwards.
Wu is married to former MediaCorp actress Wong Li-Lin and they have a daughter named Sage and a son named Jonas. Wu and his family have relocated to Shanghai, China to be nearer to job commitments.
