With 2012 Miss Hong Kong Pageant being held on Sunday, August 26th, one would expect the candidates to be in the best condition both physically and mentally.  However, it appeared that several of the contestants were not up to par with the exception of Tracey Chung (朱千雪).  At the press conference, Christy Chan (陳潔玲) had a cold sore on her lower lip and Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯) had massive bags under her eyes.  Although the pageant was only nights away, were the candidates prepared to put their best sides forward?

Unsanitary Makeup Provided by TVB

Christy Chan bravely divulged that the reason for the cold sore on her lower lip was due to the unsanitary makeup provided by the company.  As the contestants shared makeup, there were incidences of cross-contamination.  Previously, Cynthia Tsang (曾明俐)also had a cold sore but had since recovered.  As Christy may have used the same lipstick as Cynthia, Christy may have unknowingly received her sore. 

Christy disclosed, “The cause of the cold sore may be due to the unsanitary makeup.  With makeup shared amongst the peers and lack of rest, my immune system is weak causing the cold sore.  Because of this, the company had requested for us to bring our own lipstick.” 

Christy and Amigo Deny Love Rumors 

Recently, it was rumored that love had sparked between Christy and pageant emcee, Amigo Chui (崔建邦).  Christy denied the allegations and stressed that she was not interested.  She said, “Amigo is nice to all the girls. He would remind us to be cautious of our lazy intonations.  He is a brilliant emcee but he is not suited for me.”  

Amigo also replied to the rumors and stated, “If they are not facts, I will not respond. It is truly fabricated!”  Regarding the contestants,  Amigo commended Tracy and Jennifer Shum (岑杏賢) for their vast improvement in their speaking abilities.  

Roxanne Feels Stressed 

During the press conference, hot favorite, Roxanne looked a little haggard with big bags underneath her eyes.  She admitted that she felt stressed from the competition and said, “I personally feel that I’m not at my best.  On average, I’ve only been sleeping six hours causing the big bags underneath my eyes.”  

Tracy’s Confidence Boost 

Among the contestants, it was reported that Tracy was the fiercest competitor due to her significant weight lost of 12 pounds!  She indicated that the weight loss boosted her confidence, “My confidence definitely increased since I’ve lost weight.  I personally feel that I’m prettier!”  When asked if she had lost weight in her chest region?  She replied, “I haven’t measured myself.  I may have lost a little but don’t need to change the size of my undergarments yet.”

      “Cold Sore Spreads Among Contestants”

      When I read that I immediately thought of some sex disease because cold sores is a symptom isn’t it?

    2. TVBFanatic says:

      “On average, I’ve only been sleeping six hours causing the big bags underneath my eyes.”

      LOL…. only 6 hours? poor poor girl.

      Funn – Cold Sores are primarily caused by a member of the “herpes” family – but is not the same as the sexually transmitted herpes.

      • Anon says:

        Only 6 hours? When she become a TVB artistes, she will only get 1-2 hours sleep everyday when there’s a series. Good luck my dear.

        • sandcherry says:

          Agree. Roxanne has to learn to sleep less if she plans to join the entertainment industry.

      • Gar says:

        I really hope Roxanne doesn’t win.

      • Funn Lim says:

        6 hours is a luxury. Wait till she becomes a “member of the TVB family” where she has only 1 hour or less sleep. Complains, complains…whine whine whine.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Felix Wong requested for TVB to give him at least 5 hours when he agreed to film Gun Metal Grey so yes, 6 hours is heaven. However, she is whining already… I don’t think she is fit for the circle or TVB at least.

        • TVBFanatic says:

          Exactly what I was thinking. I’m not a member of the TVB crew and 6 hours is a luxury for me :P

        • lol says:

          She’s spoiled

    3. Gar says:

      Losing 12 pounds? She must be starving herself.

    4. aw says:

      omg the first 3 from the left all have the same fake chin!!! must went to the same doctor. LOL

    5. hmmmm says:

      they had to kick out gloria.

      • HeTieShou says:

        Gloria did not make it?? I am shocked that they did not kick out Carat or Roxanne..

        • sandcherry says:

          Carat and Roxanne seemed to look quite pretty on TV. However, I hope someone else will win. There were just too many rumours about Roxanne and Carat.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I guess many forgot the makeup less photos… Carat looks too plastic while Roxanne is not pretty at all.. She has an ugly nose… I guess she did not inherit the nice nose that her uncle has…

        • sandcherry says:

          I think all the beauty contestants should wear no makeup at the finale. In that case, people can judge easily and pick the naturally prettiest girl as Miss Hong Kong. He he …….

        • HeTieShou says:

          That is a good idea sandcherry!! but I highly doubt that they would do so…

        • ita says:

          no make up? then it would be Halloween costume contest hehehe..

    6. skinnymocha says:

      Sooo. Anyone been following the pageant this year? Any potential actresses to look out for?

      • TVBFanatic says:

        Well… in terms of presence in front of the camera… none.

        • skinnymocha says:

          “Well, that’s only to be expected”… Is that what you want me to say, TVB? Makes me feel stupid for still clinging on despite the hole they’ve dug for themselves. And they know it too; they know we’ll put up with whatever nonsense they decide to put out.

          I’m still waiting for the day another Marianne Chan comes along. At least she gave us hope that some good *does* come out of beauty pageants.

    7. JDub says:


      Christy is just too plain, no matter how much she looks like Michelle Chen.

      Roxanne is winning a lot of awards, but she is actually not that pretty. There is something about the nose area.

      Cynthia and Jennifer look a bit too old? And they are 26 and 24 respectively. I am sorry.

      Amy was the last person to make it to the top 10, meaning, she would not have made it if anything.

      Melaine is not ugly, but she is not beautiful. Just because she is mixed, that does not make her beautiful. Her EQ is low if you listen to her talk and yes, I understand that her Cantonese is not good.

    8. HeTieShou says:

      When will be the final competition be held??

    9. lol says:

      This year’s pageant is lacklustre. Some of these girls look promising before but now I think they look boring and not pretty enough

    10. sushiroll says:

      biatch 6 hours is adequate

    11. bb says:

      I am a fan of Roxanne Tong, she is the prettiest, I don’t care about her negative news, others are so ugly, hope she wins.

    12. Cesi says:

      not looking forward to MHK this year…

    13. RLF Lover says:

      Can’t even be bothered about Ms HK anymore. Only looking forward to LF’s performance on Sunday night.

      • elin says:

        omg at last someone who agrees wth me.. ms hk jus doesnt appeal to me..prefer watchng lf anytime

    14. Larry 3 says:

      Can TVB replay the Miss HK 2011 show instead of airing Miss HK 2012?

    15. sandcherry says:

      The final results of Miss Hong Kong will be decided on the votes cast by people in Hong Kong. No more judge panels. This is very weird. All the contestants have to do now is to get as many people in Hong Kong as possible to vote for them.

    16. Larry 3 says:

      Who is favorite to win Miss HK 2012?

    17. ita says:

      does beauty contest allow plastic surgery now?. I thought in the past would be disqualified?. I read about how miss Korea was totally plastic and she still holding the crown. Miss the 80s or 90s contestant, most of them have their own unique look and pretty, and you can tell them apart. Nowadays every body look like mannequin, can’t tell from one another.

      • TVBFanatic says:

        I think they should ban all participants who’ve had plastic surgery. Anyone can be “made” to look beautiful…
