On Australian TV it is usually SBS and sometimes ABC which shows some semblance of Asian representation and diversity. And it is a show on SBS which we are talking about today. On a recent episode of “Celebrity Letters and Numbers” featured a number of Asian Australians, and how refreshing is it to see this.
On 5 July 2021, SBS announced that Letters and Numbers would be revived in a new series hosted by comedian, journalist and actor Michael Hing.
The purpose of the game is 2 contestants compete against each other in a series of 9 rounds, split into 3 sections. The first 2 sections consist of 2 letters rounds followed by a numbers round; the third section consists of a letters round, a numbers round, and the conundrum round.
So, which Asian Australians were on the most recent episode? Asides from Michael Hing being the host – comedian Suren Jayemanne and writer/comedian Jennifer Wong ( who recently hosted a series called “Chopsticks or Fork” on ABC).
