Jamie Chung was born on April 10, 1983, and originally hails from her hometown of Riverside in California. A daughter of Korean heritage, she was 20 years old during her time on the show. Jamie possessed the qualities of a straightforward young woman who bluntly told things as they were, as well as being no-nonsense and in-your-face when dealing with her peers. This made her seem highly capable, if somewhat brusque and brutally honest. She is best known for being in the fourteenth season of the hit MTV reality television series The Real World, set in San Diego, California.
Chung was brought up in San Francisco by first generation parents who strictly adhered to tradition. Jamie also proved herself to be a hard worker, holding down two jobs in order to pay for her tuition, and studying diligently for her tests in school. But as busy as she kept herself with her responsibilities, she also had a reputation for partying just as hard and enjoying herself. However, her friends have said that her main fault is her taste in men. While she was very selective about the people and guys she hung out with, she still tended to overlook major shortcomings in the men that she did like.
Other credits of the American actress include appearances on shows like Veronica Mars, ER and several episodes of Days of Our Lives. In 2007, she was seen on an episode of CSI: NY, before she landed the lead role of Heaven in the ABC Family series Samurai Girl. She later got a recurring role in the series Greek, in addition to her film credit which is I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry with Adam Sandler and Kevin James. She has also signed on to portray Chi-Chi in the Dragonball movie.
