Tai Trang (born on March 23, 1965 in Vietnam) is a Vietnamese-American professional gardener and reality television show personality. Tai grew up in Vietnam but emigrated, with his family, to the United States in 1980. The trip was not easy, as Tai, his parents and his 11 siblings escaped the communist country on a fishing boat, somehow surviving 11 days on the ocean. The family lived in an Indonesian refugee camp before they eventually made it to San Francisco. Tai’s natural affinity for gardening led him to pursue a career in horticulture. He also became a beekeeper, donating the honey to the Quesada Garden General Store. In 2016, Tai was part of the cast of CBS’s Survivor: Kaoh Rong.
