She was born and raised in Doncaster although both her parents are from Burma, the Southeast Asian country now known as Myanmar.

At the age of 20, Chrissie moved to L.A, where she kick-started a career in glamour modelling and acting before writing a book about her experience called Diaries of a Glamour Puss Model.

The single mum of two explained more about her life in the lead up to First Dates in a blog post on – a blog that reached the final of both the U.K blog awards and the Diversity in Media awards.

Chrissie said:

Yet, after three failed marriages – I used to be married to American True Blood’ actor Michael Raymond-James and went on dates with Matt Dillon and Joseph Fiennes, and now at 37 – I found myself just feeling unlucky in love.

I’ve had a really difficult time trying to find the man of my dreams. I was online and saw that First Dates was looking for people in need of love in Yorkshire.

Chrissie Wunna – Paris Hilton’s BFF!

Chrissie’s appearance on First Dates was not her first stint on TV by a long stretch.

In 2009, she starred on ITV2 reality show Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend, a show where Paris searches for a new best friend.

Chrissie was eliminated in episode 7 of the show because Paris felt that she could have been on the show for personal gain.

She has one other IMDB credit as a model in the movie The Boat That Rocked.
