Chinese Olympic gold medalist Guo Jingjing (郭晶晶) and her husband, Hong Kong businessman Kenneth Fok (霍啟剛), will both be starring in the upcoming third season of The Amazing Race: China Rush <極速前進>. The couple, both extremely private people, allowed the crew to film in their house as they did interviews for the show.
Their mansion, also known as the “Stone Manor”, is located in Sassoon Road, Hong Kong Island. The luxury home, built in 1930, was previously owned by the late Loke Wan Tho (陸運濤), a Singaporean business magnate.
The Foks’ Stone Manor covers an area of 3,000 square meters and is estimated to cost approximately $1.4 billion HKD in the market. It overlooks the beach in Hong Kong Island, overseeing the views of the East Lamma Channel and Lantau Island. Two stone lions guard the main entrance to their property, and a wall of green vines surround the manor in a perimeter. With the mountains and the sea by its side, the manor is at an excellent feng shui location.
Jingjing, who won six Olympic medals during her diving career, married Kenneth in November 2012 after eight years of dating. They welcomed their first child, a son, in August 2013.
The third season of The Amazing Race will premiere on Friday, July 8. The season will also feature pop singer Vanness Wu (吳建豪), TV host Jin Xing (金星), and Olympic gold medalist Liu Xiang (劉翔).
