Tian: “I don’t know what my sexuality would be called…I don’t do labels.”
Models and actresses Tian Ktchen and Jaree Poteet were eliminated from The Amazing Race 4 two weeks ago. A line from Tian’s bio remains curious, however: “Jaree was disappointed when she found out that Tian, likes girls. Jaree got over it, but admits that if Tian ever hit on her, it’d be over between them.” What does that mean? “I’m not going to block anything out where I can find my soulmate–male or female,” she tells the Dallas Voice. “I don’t do labels on stuff. I don’t know what my sexuality would be called–but it wouldn’t be called heterosexual either.” She also reveals she once dated tennis player Mark Philippoussis.
