Hazelle has also been known to have dated a Mediacorp producer by the name of Jordan Lim, whom she first got to meet on the set of the YES 933 web series, “亲爱的九月”.[7] After dating for 3 years, the couple split amicably at the start of 2021, but have chosen to remain close friends.[7]


In 2017, Hazelle Teo graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Social Sciences, including a double major in Theatre Studies and Communications and New Media.[1]

Hazelle is joined by fellow radio DJs Germaine Tan and Azura Goh on Clarity’s Hush Hush series.[9][10] In particular, the trio host the Hush Podcast, which aims to empower women through the discussion of topics like relationships, health, and wellness.

“As a co-host of the Hush podcast, I always say women should embrace our bodies and be comfortable in our own skin.”[11]

Eliciting strong reactions of indignation and disapproval from netizens after an episode on the topic of cheating (2022)

On 8 November 2022, Clarity published a 36-minute episode on various streaming platforms, which was largely centred around topics like cheating and monogamous relationships.[12]

However, the episode was heavily criticised online as the hosts were seen to suggest that the act of cheating is justifiable. When 987FM DJ Germaine Tan asked whether it was “acceptable or justifiable”, her fellow hosts replied saying that “there are situations” or “reasons” that might make it justifiable.[12]

Later on, excerpts of the episode were taken down on TikTok as it took most of the heat.[12] The podcast’s producers also came out to clarify the content had been “misinterpreted due to lack of context” and that they were “not justifying that cheating or having an affair is okay”.[12]

“Well, I don't want to put a hard "no" to this question. In certain cases where relationships are toxic and people cheat, then I think... in a certain way, it's justifiable? Because you can't get love from that relationship, and that's why you turn to other means.” - Hazelle Teo’s perspective and take on the cheating debate.[12]
