2011 Mr. Hong Kong First Round of Interviews
Yesterday, the first round of interviews was held for the 2011 Mr. Hong Kong competition. The Mr. Hong Kong competition was known for its outlandish antics. However, the majority of applicants at yesterday’s interview were attempting to look cool. Perhaps the Mr. Hong Kong applicants set Raymond Lam as their target instead?
Thirty-two applicants appeared at the interview yesterday. In the past, the applicants often showcased their abdominal muscles; however the men only flashed their cool exterior yesterday. The men only showcased their muscular arms and demonstrated Latin dance and martial arts poses. The physical appearance of the applicants was not outstanding either.
The good-looking applicants included model Edmond Siu, “Big-eyed Cheung Lap Kei” and “Big-eyed Kwon Sang Woo.” One of the applicants immediately flashed his arm muscles before the press upon arrival. He did not pay attention to the bag that he dropped on the ground and the onsite staff had to urge him to go backstage. When he entered the stage, he posed in various postures and removed his outer shirt to show his muscles. When the press asked the candidate whether he worked in law enforcement, he made a salutary gesture.
Several applicants resembled TVB’s actors, such as “Swollen-eyed Ron Ng,” “Dimpled Louis Yuen,” “Ugly version of Bosco Wong,” “Michael Tse Look-a-like” “Small-eyed Kenny Wong” and “Short Chilam Cheung.” When the press mentioned to a candidate that he resembled Michael Tse, he said that many people made the same comment. He immediately striked a “Laughing Gor” pose. Three of the applicants appeared to be older and one man made a martial arts posture.
The 2011 Mr. Hong Kong competition will be held on July 16th at TVB City. Twelve candidates will be selected to participate in the competition. Originally, forty men were scheduled for the first round of interviews; however eight candidates did not appear for unknown reasons. The panel will contact the candidates who did not appear for the interview. The applicants’ age ranged from 20 to 40 years old. Several candidates were from Canada, Great Britain, and the United States.
At yesterday’s interview, the applicants were judged on their articulation skills and were asked to wear a swimming-trunks-like garment to see whether the applicants had tattoos on their bodies. The event producer confirmed that tattoos were acceptable in the competition. (Were the applicants banned from revealing their muscular bodies before the press?) Event producer, Wai Sai Fai said, “No, that’s not the case. It’s fine since they are men.”
Jayne: Actually the man that resembles Michael Tse possesses Michael’s magnetic eyes. Not bad…I spot 2 or 3 decent looking men. Can’t really judge from one photo alone. I’ll reserve judgement until I see swimsuit photos.
