Janice Chiang and Jannassa Neo, who play the women vying for Benjamin Kheng's affections on the Toggle rom-rom, on relationship deal-breakers and other matters of the heart.
Janice Chiang, 29
In the real world… she’s the producer/writer/co-founder of the YouTube comedy channel Tree Potatoes.
On The Break-up List… she plays Judy, the materialistic nightmare ex-girlfriend.
What she looks for in a man: "He has to be intellectual. I like to have engaging conversations and hear a different opinion from time to time. I'm a workaholic, so I need a lot of space in my relationships. So I'm not the needy kind and my boyfriend needs to accept that."
Turn-offs: "I will never date someone who smokes. Smoking is bad for you! Plus I have a very sensitive nose."
How she’d deal with a break-up: "I’ll cut my hair ’cos it’ll feel like a fresh start. I’ll also go on a solo trip overseas to clear my mind."
Is Benjamin Kheng BF material? "He really not my type. I'd rather choose Elliot [Tan, Kheng’s on-screen BFF and Tree Potatoes co-founder] because I've known him longer and he's a really good friend to me."
Jannassa Neo, 26
In the real world… she posts vids of herself singing on Instagram, where she has 12,000 followers.
On The Break-up List… she makes her acting debut as Sarah, a whimsical art teacher.
What she looks for in a man: "I feel most comfortable being alone, so I'm quite a homebody actually. It’s great if he's musically inclined. But really, I want compassion. It's just nice to have an empathetic someone who cares.
Turn-offs: "If he has no direction or passion. I’ll also be put off if he’s solely focused on me."
How she’d deal with a break-up: "I’ll just bury myself in work, learn new stuff and try not to think about the relationship."
Is Benjamin Kheng BF material? "He’s a musician and I love singing with people, so I can connect with him on that level. On the other hand, Elliot's a great listener and good communication is important in every relationship. Can I take both?"
The Break-up List is streaming on Toggle. It premieres on Ch 5 in Nov.
