    Heh I always imagined your voice would be higher pitched and more East coast!

    Didn’t watch it all, it’s midnight and I have to work tomorrow.

    The dress was fabulous and you looked lovely! The earrings so light and delicate, they sparkled next to your hair. It was interesting that the other two ladies were both singers and city girls (“Beijing forever”), while you have experienced life in rural China and shared that with us in your blog.

    Great for you! I can’t believe someone I’ve known half my life and have had fun times with is on international TV. I do wish they would have spent more time with you, maybe a segment on you and Jun out in the countryside with the family 😉

    You are so poised and confident, I certainly wouldn’t be if I were on TV! What a great segment, well done Jocelyn!

    Well done! I enjoyed watching the show and hearing each of you share your stories. It must have been quite an experience, but then again, you are probably used to experiencing things most people back home can’t imagine. Thanks for sharing as always.

    Great to ‘meet’ you like that! The show was fascinating. Hope there’ll be more. Would have loved to see Jun, too, but we can’t have it all…

    It was very nice to hear your experiences, and I must say, you looked stunning!
    But I was a little disappointed that you didn’t get to tell your story on how you and your husband met. Did it get cut out, or did it just never get there?

    Either way, best wishes to you!

    Haha, yeah… I didn’t really have a preconceived idea of what you would sound like, but your voice came as something of a surprise.

    For a moment, I thought you’re a Virgo, Jocelyn. But then I saw you just had your birthday a month ago, so you’re not Virgo. You’re Leo.

    Remember reading somewhere in your posts long time ago when you’re taking a cab, the taxi driver said you’re like Chinese, you really are Chinese.

    Great to listen to three of you having a conversation on interracial relationship.

    Wow! I loved it! This segment was totally sexy showing off these foreign women! Jocelyn’s voice sounded different. I really like how Jocelyn did a “no-hold’s bar” by not withholding her opinion about the truth. Are there anymore videos or shows about you?

    Keep up the greatness!!!!!!!

    This is so cool! Thanks for sharing! On the question, how did you all meet your partners in life–I think the host forgot to let you speak your turn after the other two finished.. or did they cut it out? ><;

    Thanks for sharing, Jocelyn. It was nice to hear the three of you talk about being married to Chinese men and about living in China.

    It was great and refreshing to actually see you ‘moving’ and ‘talking’. As many others I imagined your voice differently while reading your posts.
    You all three appeared to be so professional, it was great to listen to your three stories.
    Thank you for sharing.

    It doesn’t matter how you sound on T.V. We don’t judge on that seriously. Keep up the good job ! I haven’t been here for a while due to my work and lots of trips aboard. How come I can not see anything online regarding your interview? I clicked on the link and went to that site but nothing pop up.

    1. they put you up in chaoyang hotel ???? that is only a decent hotel !!!! they should have done better and gave you a better hotel than that. i hope you could let them (cctv) know about this, first impression is always important. when they gave you a hotel like that, i guess i have to say that cctv is cheap.
    2. don’t you get pressure from your in-laws to have kids ???

    It could be that your web browser has some sort of ad blocker plugin preventing the video from displaying (instead you see a white blank space). I know I had that problem with my Firefox browser, so I used a different browser (Chrome), or I disabled the ad blocker plugin I had on Firefox and was able to view the video.

    This is really inspiring Jocelyn! I think it is awesome that you were brave enough to go on TV (I work in media and I would definitely find it daunting to speak on TV!)

    OMG!!! You were amazing. The show was great. I watched a few times. I am so proud of you.

    I finally got to watch! You were fantastic, and yeah, like everyone else, I was completely thrown by your voice. (I totally projected my higher-pitched voice onto you.)

    I thought it was hilarious that your husband totally splurges on you — and only you — by the way. A good choice!

    The earrings were also all that I hoped. 😉

    I’m not really a fan of jazz (too structured!) but I loved Jess’s voice. Gorgeous.
