The Wilds Wiki

Linh Bach is one of the recurring characters in The Wilds. She goes by the alias "Jeanette Dao" when she meets the Unsinkable 8. She is portrayed by Chi Nguyen.

Throughout the Series[]

Season 1[]


Born on Valentine's Day, Jeanette is a fun-loving optimist, with a passion for pop culture. Her sunny facade might leave others wondering if there's more to her past than she shares [1].



Leah hauls Jeanette back to shore after they wake up in the ocean near the plane wreckage. When they bury her, Leah begins to sing "Raise Your Glass" by P!NK because she knows that Jeanette liked her. The other girls eventually sing along as they bury Jeanette in a shallow grave.


Gretchen first meets Linh when overlooking a study on conformity. Gretchen is impressed by Bach's passion despite the fact she technically ruined the study.

Gretchen then recruits Linh to be a 'confederate' for The Dawn of Eve experiment after meeting her in a bar and recalling their first meeting. They then work to form her alias Jeanette Dao and prepare her to act as one of the group.


Alex was the last to interact with Linh before they began the experiment, witnessing her injury and attempting to report it. Because of this, Alex is the most impacted, apart from Gretchen, by Linh's unexpected death.
