5. Lynn Ban

Lynn Ban was born into a wealthy family in Singapore. Her father, David Ban, is the executive director of Kuala Lumpur-based developer Venus Assets and also launched Japanese chain, Genki Sushi, in Singapore and Hong Kong. Ban's mother, Patricia, is a certified gemologist.

While hailing from a privileged family, Ban has also made a name for herself over the years in the fashion industry. In 2002, Ban launched her first fashion line, Lynn Ban Vintage, before opening her eponymous jewellery line, Lynn Ban Jewelry, in 2011. Today, her creations have been worn by some of the biggest celebrities, including Beyonce, Madonna, Taylor Swift and Rihanna.

6. Nam Laks

Known as the Blair Waldorf of Thailand, Nam Laks is the youngest child of Thai businessman, Nakorn Laksanakarn. According to LinkedIn, Laksanakarn was the former managing director of real estate developer Natural Park Public Company Limited.

It is currently unclear as to what Laks is doing for a living. However, during the series, we know that the youngest cast member had been relying on her family's wealth to fund her lifestyle while finishing her Master's degree from Colombia University.

While her net worth has not been released, we know she lives a comfortable life—in the series, we see Laks dropping US$10,000 on a shopping spree. When asked how much she had spent, she says: "It's fine, my daddy will pay ... It doesn't matter. I don't want to know". Following the conversation, she received a call from her brother who told her how their father was not pleased with her recent haul. He even said (cue gasp) their father will cut her off upon graduation. Will that be her storyline for the next season? Time will tell.
