Chiu Tsui-Ling (Chinese: 邱翠玲; pinyin: Qiu Cuiling; Wade–Giles: Chiu Ts'ui-Ling; born January 16, 1994 in Taiwan), better known in Japan as Rei Rei (レイレイ?) is a member of the latest Hello! Project group Ice Creamusume. She was announced as a winner of the Taiwan Hello! Project New Star Auditions on September 20, 2008 along with the other members of Ice Creamusume.

Casting[edit]

Hello! Project producer Tsunku announced his plans to start a Taiwanese audition in 2007 to find new talent to help the company's expansion into Asia. The winners would become a part of a new Hello! Project group. There were six winners, including Chiu, and the group are set to debut in 2009 with their mini-album and at a Hello! Project concert.

After failing to pass the public auditions, Chiu was brought back for a special episode in which Tsunku allowed his favourite losers from the auditions and live shows to re-audition for the judges. However, she was eliminated during this episode once again, and instead was sent to a "last camp" of sorts, where she was eventually chosen, along with Chung An-chi, to join the group as one of Tsunku's picks.
