Olivia Munn Debuts On The Daily Show

Last night on The Daily Show, Olivia Munn from G4’s Attack of the Show debuted as the show’s newest “Senior Asian Correspondent.” She attempts to report on the plight of the Vietnamese fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico in a segment titled, “The Spilling Fields – Vietnamese Fisherman,” until all the other correspondents show up to fight over who gets to be the latest Senior Asian Correspondent. Aasif Mandvi especially has an issue with this. Jon describes Olivia as of Vietnamese descent, which surprised me, considering her Wikipedia profile says she is Chinese and German-Irish. Her faux Vietnamese is pretty decent though.

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
