A Host From A Popular American Daytime TV Show Was In Saudi For The Formula E-Race And Her IG Posts Are ON POINT

Jeannie Mai In Saudi Arabia

Jeannie Mai, the popular Asian American co-host on The Real, was recently in Saudi and attended the Formula-E race that took place last weekend.

The Real is a panel show, a little like The View, that features a group of female hosts who share their take on varied topics like motherhood, recent events, marriages and other life experiences.

Mai visited with her mother and stayed in the Kingdom's capital city of Riyadh where she explored and learned about the Saudi culture and traditions.

Quite literally

...then attended the David Guetta concert at Ad Diriyah

Jeannie Mai took to her social media account to laud how monumental of a moment the weekend the Formula-E race was for Saudi. It was, after all, the first time that men and women were able to partake in a co-ed concert- with Western performers, at that.


As a stylist and bonafide fashionista- she LOVED wearing the traditional abaya

Who could blame her?

The abaya has a myriad of styles, colors and patterns to choose from.

She dabbled in some traditional kabsa eating too

Jeannie Mai rocked that hijab with pride
