Taipei, May 8 (CNA) A recent survey found that popular TV host Tao Ching-ying's successful marriage and career has made her the most envied mom by working mothers, an online job bank said Monday.

Some 59.9 percent of the respondents said they were most envious of Tao, also known as Tao Tzu, a mother of two, for her parenting skills, successful marriage and the low frequency of negative news about her, Yes123 said, citing the results of the poll.

Some 23.2 percent voted for another TV host, Dee Hsu, better known as "Little S," because that as a mother of three, she could make a living with what she enjoys doing, it said.

Another 10.2 percent of the polled said they envy New York Knicks star point guard Jeremy Lin's mother Shirley Lin, for having children that have remarkable achievement in their career.

The rest of the voters chose socialite Amy Sun, wife of a local tycoon, for maintaining a fine physique after giving birth to two children.

The job bank conducted the survey from April 16-May 4 and collected 1,258 valid samples. The survey had a confidence level of 95 percent with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.76 percentage points.
