#10. Cyndi Wang
CLAIM TO FAME: We're fighting our lesser instincts to not make a joke about her last name, because the exceptionally hardworking actress/pop singer deserves a lil' more respect, given that she's released eight albums since 2003 and five dramas in the past ten years. Yup, you could say Wang's had a long and wide-ranging career.

#9. Coco Jiang
CLAIM TO FAME: The model turned actress' resume includes films such as Angel Lover, Hot Shot, Knock Knock Loving You, and Summer's Desire. We know what you're thinking, but unfortunately she's not a porn star.

#8. Bianca Bai
CLAIM TO FAME: It's pretty clear why she holds down her spot as one of Taiwan's top ten models. And to cement that rep, her nicknames are allegedly "Angel's Face" and "Devil's Body." Amen.

#7. Angela Zhang
CLAIM TO FAME: The Taiwan-born singer moved to Canada (Ayo Vancouver!) as kid, where she entered singing competitions before eventually moving back to Taiwan to put her talents into practice and dabble in some acting. Her first hit, the Taiwanese drama, My MVP Valentine, sounds like a winner.

#6. Barbie Hsu
CLAIM TO FAME: We're usually wary of girls named Barbie. The image of an unbelievably firm, botoxed face, fake twos, and a ditsy personality usually come to mind. So, it was a pleasant surprise that the actress of the upcoming TV series Summer of Bubbles has none of those qualities. Except, given the title of the series, we're not so sure anymore.

li-chi-ling-1 #5. Lin Chi Ling
CLAIM TO FAME: The O.G. supermodel is the official spokesperson for China Airlines. We wouldn't mind joining the mile-high club with her.

#4. Ariel Lin
CLAIM TO FAME: Taiwan's sweetheart won the Golden Bell Award, i.e. China's Emmy, for her performance as Yuan Xiang Qin in They Kiss Again, the sequel to the series It Started With A Kiss. A kiss? Yes, but we'd probably settle for just smelling it.

#3. Chen Qiao En
CLAIM TO FAME: Apparently, actress/singer Chen Qiao En's English name is Joe Chen. Throws off her mystique a bit, and she's not a lesbian either. All that said... *begins to imagine impossibly filthy thing to do with Qiao En*

#2. Megan Lai
CLAIM TO FAME: Not gonna lie (no pun intended!), as ridiculous as the premise of Because of You sounds—a crazed fan makes her idol's attacker an overnight celebrity—Megan's sexiness might actually convince us to watch it.

rainieyang-1
#1. Rainie Yang
CLAIM TO FAME: Rainie Yang got her stage name during her stint as a member of 4 In Love, in which each of the girls were named after the weather. Kinda sounds like an epic fail of a Spice Girls rip-off, but she could still get it.
