Jessica Hsuan Unafraid of “Leftover Bachelorette” Tag; Not in Marriage Rush

As the subject of “left bachelorettes” has been a hot topic lately with TVB’s controversial show, Bride Wannabes <盛女愛作戰>, many are looking to the entertainment circle to identify who is the next eligible bachelorette. Currently starring in the popular TVB series, Tiger Cubs <飛虎>, Jessica Hsuan (宣萱) is quick to be identified as a real-life “old bachelorette.” Breaking up with her veterinarian boyfriend, Ruan Bester, last year and turning 42 years old next month, Jessica claims that she is taking her single status in stride and ready to embrace a new relationship anytime.

For someone who is known for her easygoing and outgoing personality, Jessica is surprisingly very low-key about her relationships, preferring to stay out of the limelight. Her relationship with Ruan, who is 4 years her junior, was well-received by the public given that he is a medical professional. The ex-couple shared a love for animals as well. Unfortunately, the relationship dissolved after 2 years with Jessica quoting the Chinese proverb, “3 feet of ice do not result in 1 day of cold weather,” implying that there were problems with the relationship early on. Regarding her breakup with Ruan, Jessica said, “Of course I was sad, but we’re both adults. If we didn’t get along, it’s better to end it now than later.”

Instead of dwelling over her breakup, Jessica chose to focus on her career and filmed Tiger Cubs, her last series with TVB before deciding not to renew a management contract with the company. Jessica said, “We still talk about working together, but I’m also interested in exploring other options. I want to be able to choose my scripts carefully, focusing on quality over quantity.” Jessica also pointed out that in the past half year alone, she declined the proposal to be cast in at least 5 TVB series, equating to an income loss of more than $100,000 HKD.

Even so, Jessica did not see it as a loss. In fact, she enjoys using her free time to focus on her fitness routine which gives her a healthy and glowing complexion, and not letting the “leftover bachelorette” term bother her. She said, “As long as I’m happy. To be honest, if I wanted to get married right now, I can. But I don’t feel like a person’s happiness is determined by whether or not she is married. If I wasn’t happy in a marriage, than I’d rather stay an ‘leftover bachelorette.’ I’m very certain of what I want, and that is true happiness.”

Jessica admitted that when she was in her thirties, she did feel the pressure to get married and have children. But as she gains more life experience, she realized that it is fine to be content and wait patiently until Mr. Right appears.

When asked what she is looking for in a partner, Jessica said, “Nothing in particular, as long as we have that chemistry. And he can’t be too good looking!”

      Whether she likes it or not……..admits it or not, she is definitely a “leftover bachelorete”. At 42, she is either gonna find some male much older than her who is divorced with a bunch of kids or, she will have to be a Cougar and look for young boys 10 years her junior looking for a bit of fame…….This is a typical HK woman. Her standards were too high before, and she had to find it in a white man cause she thought she was too good for Chinese guys. Now at her age, she’d be lucky even if an Indian guy wants her……just another leftover broad.

        She broke with the white man too. Jessica sets her expectation too high. At this point she’s already more than leftover.

        I think she rather be labelled leftover rather than end up with an incompatible man, which the world is full of currently!!

    This reminded me… in Japan… as soon as you are past your 25th birthday you are considered “Christmas Cake.”

    Why “Christmas Cake?” you ask? Because who wants “Christams Cake” after the 25th of December? ;P

    That said, she has the right attitude overall. Get married when you are ready to.. forcing a marriage is likely going to end up it misery.

    I thought she was with someone nearing marriage. It doesn’t matter. She is successful, she is happy with herself, so why the rush unless she wants children and even that children and marriage are mutually exclusive.

    I love Jessica; she is successful, happy and financial independent. Why does she need a man to feel complete? It is such a terrible double standard; if a guy is Jessica age and in the same position he branded by HK media as a “diamond bachelor” while the woman is “left bachelorettes”?…”old maid”…etc.

    I’m with my partner for 4 years and we have no plan to get married or have kid. Only my Asian relative gives us hard time and at every family gathering we received the same question a) “when are you getting married? b) “you are not getting any younger, when are you planning to have kid?” c) “maybe you should date someone who is Asian” etc…usually I smile politely and change the subject but I really want to says “we like our freedom, we both happy & committed…so why do I need to get married and have kid?” The mentally is if my partner and I break up I’m left with nothing but these people who ask forget I have a career and financially independent and it is my decision not to get married or have kid…I don’t understand why it so hard to understand in Asian culture 

      asian parents are extremely annoying. they love to be in their kids relationships and wants to know every little thing. i cannot stand my boyfriend’s family, each and every one of them. you help them and they are not appreciative of your kindness. instead they talk **** about you. it’s hard. sometimes i think that i should be with a non asian and life will be more free.too bad i didn’t meet any.

      I completely agree with you about the double standard for older women/men. It’s very unfair and I wish the media wouldn’t perpetuate it with TV shows like Bride Wannabes.

      I also agree that marriage isn’t the only way to conduct a relationship. Best of luck to yours!

    I don’t think you have to get married and have kids, but traditionally many asian families expect people to, especially women… At this stage, she can get married but having kids or not is another issue…

      Wrong. Anyone can stay positive if he or she has a strong will and truly wants to be happy. I always believe that our happiness is in our own hand and not rely on someone else to make us happy. Positive attitude can be trained and gained thru life experienced.

    In the original article, they only said that Jessica denied 5 series and loss more than 7 figures ( not $100,000 HKD)

    I think she’s more suitable to be with WEsterners since her attitude and principle of life are way more open and daring as compare to majority chinese in hk. she doesn’t need to be scared to be labelled as left over, she’s still pretty and elegant..

      I agree and I think westerners are more open about age and all too. Those really traditional guys are generally more strict about age too.

        yeah..let’s hope she can find her mr. right soon.. Maybe Jess needs to take time off and go holidays LoL so she can bump into her dream man.

      • HeTieShou replied:

        She does not need to rush marriage but if she wants to have kids, she really needs to hurry. But then again, isn’t she a bit past that age already?? IVF is always available but even that is not going to always be a guarantee.

    mind as well just go date kenneth ma then since he likes older woman and she’s not that much older than him. but i like jessica so i wish her all the best of luck and happiness in her life. some people got married and they only want to have pets and no kids. nowadays it depends on what the individual wants. she can be single for life and living it happily.

      Hmm… that’s an interesting idea. Did Kenneth work w/ Jessica on any series besides tiger cubs? They didn’t really have any screen time together in TC.

    Jessica should reflect on her acting. I keep seeing Jessica onscreen and not her character and she’s boring and aged.

      I think she’s lack of facial expression that make her boring.

        Agree. But maybe it was also TVB faults for asking her to act in those strong woman roles and never allowed her to try other roles!

    I do like Jessica a lot and I think she appears to be strong and positive.

    It’s a sad fact that a girl’s shelf life is very short. I think a girl is the prettiest and freshest between 17 – 25. It’s all downhill from there.

    That’s why girls should find a good match and utilise their optimum potential when they are most valuable 🙂

      Uh, 25 is still very young. Saying >25 is downhill, is too harsh!

    Hm.. I wonder if she has commitment phobia like Aaron Kwok does?? She is 42 but not rushing marriage?? Maybe she does not plan to get married at all??

    Jessica does not rush to marry. I think most marriage couple is for having kids. I see many asian divorce ladies in age of over 40 with kids from prevously relationship stiil can marry a man. In these ages, they are done with kids. They come to each other to enjoy and share joys together. Jessica has ever married. She is beautiful and rich. Why not bother to marry if you have not found one match. Rush to marry will lead toward divorce and it is worse than single :). Jessica still looks young at her age.

      Typical MCP!! Men who are afraid of strong, independent and financially capable women are usually insecure about themselves and they will do anything or say anything to make a women feel unworthy and insecure. Typically men like to control a woman so when they couldn’t do that they will resort the cheap tricks of verbally bashing her. This type of men is just bitter and a loser!
