SUPERB DANCE DUO

Mai and Armstrong were one of the dance couples who captured TV and online viewers' hearts. Many fans and judges were impressed by the duo’s superb performance on the show.

Their last dance aired on the last week of October with the theme "Villains Night." They conquered the dance floor with a Paso Doble performance to Nelly Furtado’s "Maneater."

In September, Mai and Armstrong performed a Viennese Waltz for Disney night. The TV personality picked the song "Married Life" from the movie "Up" as the duo’s number.

During their dance rehearsals, Mai told Armstrong that she chose the song because it was symbolic for her and her fiance, Jeezy, an acclaimed rapper.

She added that while they were still dating, Mai played the song to Jeezy. And like the Disney movie, she would like to grow old together with the love of her life.

Mai is living proof that age is just a number. Even if she is already in her 40s, the multi-talented TV personality’s beauty has remained timeless.

With her ageless beauty and toned physique, Mai can be mistaken for a young teen. She recently posted a photo that displayed her age-defying beauty, and her Instagram fans quickly validated the Asian's stunning looks.
