Christopher Lee Reveals Why It Was “So Difficult” To Propose To Fann Wong

Remember Mark Lee’s ‘warning’ to female viewers on Mediacorp talk show The Inner Circle, where he said that if a woman doesn’t have a good impression of a man, she could end up marrying him?

Well, that was exactly the case for Fann Wong, who first laid eyes on her husband Christopher Lee in 1995 when he was a Star Search contestant.

“Someone showed me pictures of the contestants and asked who I thought could win,” Fann, 50, recalled during her appearance as a surprise guest on Chris’ episode of The Inner Circle. “When I saw Chris, I went, “Who is this uncle? How old is he? Can he even take part?’ They told me he was actually very young and I said…”

At this point, an indignant Chris interrupted to remind her, “You’ve been married to this uncle until now,” earning him a whack on the arm from his wife, who asked him to let her finish speaking.

She continued, “Later, I saw him in person at the resting area and thought, ‘Oh, he’s so handsome. What a shame. Why isn’t he more photogenic?’ (Laughs)
