Gwennie Tam is a sexy daredevil you’ll be glad you met! Just listing her hobbies makes me tired! Read on to hear about this athlete’s usual day,the list of languages she speaks, her unfulfilled fantasy, and her relationship advice for guys!
What is your hometown and where do you live now?
I currently live between Hong Kong and Miami. Hong Kong is where I grew up since my father is Chinese and he wanted me to learn the language which in the end became my first language. I love Miami for its blue skies and beautiful sunsets. Florida is also a skydiver’s heaven with many well reputable drop zones.
34D-26-36, 120 lbs, 5’7″, Hazel Eyes, Fusion of Chinese and Canadian.
Where have we seen your modeling or acting?
I have done nine movies in Hong Kong, five TV series, and many TV shows — ranging from traveling, food, sports, music shows. I was also a radio station’s DJ for four months.
Anything awesome you have bragging rights to?
I have 67 skydives under my belt: Two tandems, and the rest solos, or fun jumps with others. I’ve bungee-jumped twice. I’ve been to quite a few wonders of the world: The Great Wall, Taj Mahal, Niagara Falls. I piloted a four-seater plane, a Cessna 172 — of course, with a pilot coach! I like Go Kart racing and I’ve won a couple times — and once race with 11 guys and one other girl, and I came second, overall. I’ve won a few awards for my jewelry designs, Gwennie Tam Fine Jewellery. I have been a judge for Miss Macau twice as well as a judge for Miss International Japan!
WOW! 67 skydives? How did you rack up so many? Are you an instructor now? How do you describe the exhilarating nature of what you do?
I always wanted to skydive, however, it was not available in Hong Kong. But on a trip to Las Vegas around a year ago, I did my first tandem. You need 500 jumps and some more qualifications to be an instructor. Right now I am precise landing to my B license. It is amazing, on my Facebook and YouTube, I have a video of one of my somersault exit out of the plane. I also recently had my first cut away (meaning my main parachute wasn’t functioning properly and I had to pull my reserve parachute.) I can’t wait to wingsuit as well…I need like 250 jumps to start doing that!
I bet guys dig your love for the extreme! Do you often do something outside or play a sport when on dates? Diving, snorkeling, bungee jumping, flying planes; what don’t you do?
Haha! Some do and some don’t. But I think most of them do because it’s more unusual. First dates are usually more typical. But after that, yes skydiving, snorkeling, jet skiing, biking, you name it. If you name it, and it sounds like fun. I will most likely be up for it. To be honest, even if it is not as extreme, I am always up for trying new things and I love challenges. However, I also like jigsaw puzzles, board games, riding horses, and I do love PS3 guy games!
How did you get into designing jewelry?
I started of as a small investor with 11 other friends and we were only buying and selling. However, I got so interested in the sparkly, gorgeous gems that I went to study to be a graduate gemologist, as well as jewelry design and jewelry business management. In 2005, I finished my design course and started designing to create a good collection. In 2009, I felt it was the right time to create my own brand and established Gwennie Tam Fine Jewellery, and since then I have won a few awards and I also designed Miss Macau Pageant’s crown.
How awesome that you are tri-lingual! You speak English, Cantonese, and Mandarin! I imagine this came from growing up in Asia? Do you find you can use the languages living in the US now; specifically in the Spanish market like Miami, where you are now?
I love languages, my goal is to be fluent in eight languages one day. I have been learning Spanish (I know about 2,000 words already, I’m just not very good with sentences), as well as Italian, and I also know quite a bit of Bahasa Malayu (a Malaysian Language).
On a first date, what things can win a guy major points with you? What things will make you never see him again?
I like honest, funny, considerate, respectful, gentle, and interesting people with common hobbies. Affection and honesty are big things for me but in the case of first date honesty will probably score major points with me! I would never see them again if they are self-centered, rude, boring, dishonest, and overly worried about how they look, as in a looking in a nearby mirror more than I do type of guy!
Have you had any bad accidents with your go kart racing, horseback riding, or other high risk hobbies?
I had a really bad accident with go kart racing once in Macau. It was a relay match with a professional and an amateur racer. We had to do 5 laps each. I was first up and my kart didn’t have brakes and there was one corner where every single round I smashed into these tire walls leaving marks on my helmet. When the professional racer came back he said how on earth did you get thru the 5 laps with a decent result and why didn’t you just go to pit stop. I said I didn’t want to be blamed for the loss! Horse back riding I have fell of a horse 4 times and once got kick lightly by the horse but overall not much damage at all because I prepared myself when I knew I was falling. And one time with that cut away with skydiving mentioned above.
What do you perceive as the sexier things about yourself?
I like my eyes, and the fact that I am such a daredevil!
I think we all agree you are a daredevil and sexy because of it! What is a sexual fantasy you have but have never been able to fulfill?
Since it’s a “girl on girl” interview I would say, with a blush, that I think women are beautiful creatures, as well!
What is your sex and relationship advice for guys?
Be respectful, honest and loyal, thoughtful and sensitive. It’s all in the details. You’d be surprised how little things make a very big picture.
My ULTIMATE modeling assignment would be…
I have also wanted to be a Dolce & Gabbana, Victoria’s Secret, GUESS, a US fashion magazine cover, and an ad, billboard, or commercial, done while skydiving!
Who are you inviting to your celebrity threesome?
Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie!
What is the most ridiculous thing a photographer has asked you to do for a shoot?
I had a photo shoot magazine cover in Hong Kong with a killer whale! Nothing bad happened though, aside from a few kisses with the whale. One time I had to take a short course of scuba diving to do a shoot so me and the reporter did the short course, but the instructors said that he felt that the reporter is not good enough to do both at the same time. The magazine ended up having the instructor take the pictures for them. That was pretty funny.
The sexiest sports icon is…
Roberta Mancino — she is a skydiver/wingsuiter I want to be like her one day.
