Here is the run-down of the finalists:

This year the three overseas contestants — Michelle Liem, Karen Leung and Natalie Siu — are somewhat inferior in terms of their looks and quality. ‘Pirated Karena Ng‘ (Sisley Choi) just came back to Hong Kong from her studies in Germany, but she appeared stiff in from of the cameras; ‘Big Chest Tracy Chu‘ (Virgina Lau) had the best figure despite her conservative dress; Last year Ashley Chu tried for Miss HK, but she was eliminated during the audition, but fortunately this year she made it through.

Moon Lau is lengmo Dada Chan’s younger cousin, she dominated in height. She also had public relation skills, and introduced herself to the media. On Instagram, she posted several sexy pictures, is she worried this would impact her image? Moon explained: “That person is not me. I didn’t take sexy pictures. The picture is a White girl, my target when losing weight. Please help me clarify.”

‘Pirated Olivia Cheng‘ (Peggy Tsui) had been in the Taiwanese entertainment industry before, but her background is worth a ponder. She former name was Tsui Yeuk Wo and now she changed her name to Tsui Ngai Wan. Yesterday she introduced herself as Tsui Siu Pui on her name tag. Surprisingly, one person can change her Chinese name 3 times and after she entered Miss HK, she deleted her Facebook account.

According to TVB’s Production and Resource Director (Virgina Lok) and Non-Drama Production Director (Sandy Yu), there were nearly 2,000 applicants this year for Miss Hong Kong pageant. Although 400 were chosen to participate in the first round of auditions, only 129 candidates actually turned up. Aside from 10 candidates who could barely be considered beautiful, the others were far below standard.

On the bright side, many candidates were highly educated – with 10 holding a master’s degree or PhD.
