Season 14, Episode 14 Seeking Asian Female

First Aired: May 6, 2013

"Seeking Asian Female" examines a white baby boomer's obsession with Asian women, which long ago led him to mail-order catalogs and international dating sites in search of a bride. His search ends with a Chinese woman about half his age who doesn't quite fit his fantasy. Neither does he, a parking-lot attendant, for her. From a poor family, she'd hoped for someone wealthy. Filmmaker Debbie Lum narrates the story, which began as a "yellow fever" exposé before she succumbed to the couple's charms.
