Who is Bao? 'Married at First Sight' star wants to marry someone nerdy like herself
There is usually a tried and tested order to things -- you find and meet someone you are interested in and attracted to when it comes to relationships. You then get to know each other as you grow emotionally and romantically involved. And finally, you tie the knot and start a new chapter of your lives together. However, for the couples of 'Married at First Sight', the wedding comes first and everything else follows!
Season 12 saw some success stories while there were a few divorces as well. But for the happy couples of the 'MAFS' franchise, the show truly helped them find their soulmates. Now, the series is ready to set up five couples from Houston, Texas, hoping that they find love. And among them is Bao. Here's what we know about her so far.

Who is Bao?
Bao is a 35-year-old Texas native and her parents were Vietnamese refugees. For Bao, marriage was never really on the cards. However, now that she is in her 30s, she has had a change of heart and wants to find someone to grow old with.
Her bio mentions that she has a lot to offer and hopes to find a partner who can measure up. Bao and her partner, Johnny, are the first American-Asian couple on the show, and they're one to keep an eye out for, seeing that they even have a traditional Vietnamese wedding. It's sure to be a refreshing change from the standard wedding ceremonies fans have come to expect from the show.
What is Bao looking for in her future husband?
Seeing that Bao has changed her opinion with regard to marriage, she has a rather clear idea of what she wants from her future husband. Bao is looking for a man who is intelligent, adventurous and honest. She also hopes that he will have good communication skills and a sense of humor as well.
She is also hoping to find someone nerdy, seeing that she mentioned she loves nerds and is rather nerdy herself -- she even has an Excel sheet of her bread dough recipes to help her perfect her formula. And lastly, she has also mentioned she wants a man with strong family values.
Do Bao and Johnny know each other already?
The whole idea of 'Married at first sight is the fact that you meet a stranger that you've never met before and yet they are deemed your ideal match. But seeing that these couples are from the same city -- in this case Houston, it wouldn't be entirely impossible that they haven't crossed paths at some point.
Fans of 'MAFS' know Season 11's Woody and Amani briefly encountered each other before the show, only to be matched together. It turns out Bao and Johnny have a prior connection, seeing that they recognize each other immediately as Bao walks down the aisle. Although it's not revealed how they know each other, it will be interesting to see their dynamic play out on screen!
'Married at First Sight' Season 13 premieres with a three-hour episode on July 21 at 8 pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
