Covered Hurley's lotto win

S1 - S2 - S3 - MP - S4 - S5 - S6


Tricia Tanaka was the newswoman from Action 8 News that reported on Hurley's winning of the lottery, and his subsequent reopening of Mr. Cluck's Chicken Shack. Tanaka interviewed Hurley in front of Mr. Cluck's, but quickly cut the interview short after Hurley started talking about his ‘bad luck’. After Tanaka and her cameraman went inside Mr. Cluck's to shoot additional footage, a meteorite crashed into and destroyed Mr. Cluck’s, killing Tricia Tanaka and the cameraman.


  • Her name is very similar to Family Guy's "Asian Reporter Trisha Takanawa", who was killed and eaten by news anchors Tom Tucker and Diane Simmons in an episode of the show revealed to be a dream.
  • Tricia Tanaka is also the name of the 2000 winner of the Nisei week pageant in Los Angeles.
  • Tanaka is the 4th most popular surname in Japan, based on the Japanese Census in 1996.
