Anya Ayoung-Chee is the winner of Project Runway’s ninth season. She is also Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe 2008 and was a contestant in the Miss Universe 2008 pageant.
Ayoung-Chee is the second title holder in the franchise’s 44-year history to be of Chinese descent, the first being Stephanie Lee Pack in 1974. When asked “Is your Asian heritage an issue since you represent a country with an overwhelming African and Indian heritage?” by missology.org Anya replied, “Trinidad & Tobago is unique in its ethnic make-up because it is a country with people of all races. I am of mixed origin, mainly Chinese, Indian and Caucasian, and although my particular mixture is a minority, I represent the unusual combination of ethnicities that defines us as a people”.
Now, a sextape has surface her ex-boyfriend, Wyatt Gallery, and another woman. Initial reports said the other woman was Miss Japan 2008, Hiroko Mima. However, Gallery has told TMZ and other media outlets that the other woman was not Miss Japan 2008.
Gallery said the video was stolen from his laptop while it was in a repair shop in Trinidad.
He told TMZ the video was shot in 2007; however, the Miss Universe organization released a statement that the video was shot “eight months after the pageant” in 2008.
“I feel horrible and embarrassed for Anya, her family and myself,” Gallery told TMZ. He suggested that the tape was leaked intentionally to ruin her career.
Chee, who was praised by “Runway” judges for her Caribbean-inspired designs and ability to craft beautiful clothes on tight deadlines, has acknowledged that a salacious tape starring herself was circulating online. The Trinidadan American admitted on an episode of “After the Runway” (also on Lifetime) that the tape had resurfaced and was causing a lot of embarrassment for her.
As the winner of “Project Runway,” season 9, Chee won $100,000 to start her own clothing line, an editorial feature in Marie Claire magazine, the opportunity to sell a fashion line on Piperlime.com, and a $50,000 technology suite from Hewlett-Packard.
The tapes are all over the internet so feel free to google!
