Lisa Ling

Members of a fraternity at Appalachian State University once invented the "Lisa Ling Drinking Game." The frat brothers would watch tapes of The View and take a drink whenever Lisa said something on the show. None of them ever got more than a mild buzz. This was because Lisa usually sat silent on the show, hardly ever saying anything.
HIred on The View because ABC executives wanted a young Asian woman on the show.
Attended USC but never graduated.
Competed in the Boston Marathon in April, 2001.
Professional idol is Connie Chung.
