To lure in viewers, TVB has added a brand new segment for this year’s Miss Hong Kong Pageant Semi-Final, which will take place on August 25. The 20 contestants will face a panel of “Celebrity Voters” made up of Carol Cheng (鄭裕玲), Nat Chan (陳百祥), Hacken Lee (李克勤), and Eric Tsang (曾志偉), and will be drilled about their negative news and gossips that have surfaced recently. During the live broadcast, the candidates will be tested on their responses and quick wit, and will be judged on whether they truly possess both beauty and wisdom.

The ladies participated in a fitness competition yesterday, showing off their smiles and cleavage while running on treadmills and riding exercise bikes. There have been many rumors surrounding the contestants since their names were officially announced in July. While gossips were taboo in the past, this year’s new segment will surely raise the show’s entertainment value while highlighting some of the more controversial candidates.

To get a sense of what the contestants are up against, #1 Kendy Cheung (張敬仁) was once rumored to be bisexual and has had plastic surgery. Contestant #6 Moon Lau (劉佩玥), who was once under the same talent manager as Dada Chan, was said to cuss very often. Popular contestant #9 Virginia Lau (劉溫馨) was earlier accused of wearing counterfeit clothes, although she later denied the allegation. Contestant #11 Summer Ng (吳瑋雯) apparently smokes and has kissed a girl. Contestant #17 Grace Chan (陳凱琳), who has won three awards so far, was reportedly living with an adopted father though she later clarified that she is living with her biological parents. Contestant #18 Cherry Cheung (張雪瑩) was seen performing on a mainland television show and was accused of flirting with the audience. Cherry later admitted to singing on the show but denied acting out-of-bounds. Contestant #20 Vicky Chan (陳偉琪) also made headlines for skewing the polls by rallying her friends and family to vote for her.

Finally, the most controversial candidate is likely #13 Tammy Ou Yang (歐陽巧瑩). Aside from plastic surgery claims, Tammy is also accused of working at night clubs and acting intimate with men. She also made news for taking out high interest private loans, using her classmates as guarantors. Tammy initially denied the rumor but later admitted to taking out loans due to a family emergency. She added that she was never late on payment.

This week, Tammy is involved in yet another gossip headline when a source claimed that she is a smoker and used to work as a model for private photo shoots. Tammy addressed this rumor at today’s event, saying, “It is true that I have modeled for a friend, but it was completely voluntary and I did not receive any pay. They are normal photos, not sexy at all.” When asked about her smoking habit, she stated, “I don’t smoke anymore. I tried it when I was younger, but I don’t remember when. When I was young, if I see a pea on the ground I would pick it up and eat it. Once I even ate a stone. Smoking was something that I picked up accidentally.”

    1. UNI says:

      Just when I thought TVB cannot go any lower and worse. . it surprises me once again. Seriously that’s not testing “wits”. That’s just feeding into the gossip. What a bunch of animals.

    2. Lily says:

      if this is part of their “reality” theme… then I am very disappointed. TVB is lacking creativity…

    3. mi says:

      Vicky trying to skew polls sounds pretty weak against her…i mean who doesn’t?

    4. guest says:

      Flirting with the audience and living with adopted parents are silly accusations… So what if its true. And Tammy’s response to smoking is not witty at all. Guess she’s out lol

    5. pastel says:

      I swear the second girl on the left is Karena Ng

    6. Woooo says:

      How is living with the adopted father a negative rumour and why does it have to be explained to the media?

    7. Truly Asian says:

      Miss HK, much ado about nothing. Completely over-hyped.

      And they are not even beautiful.

      Most of the TVB actress coming out of the Miss HK pageant are just average, nothing stunning.

      Mainland stars definitely beat them hands down, no fight

    8. TVBFanatic says:

      I said it last year… and TVB proves it again this year.

      This isn’t a pageant anymore… it’s trash reality TV.

      A pageant is about beauty, elegance, and grace. None of those qualities are being championed with this “tabloid” style…

      • Iris says:

        I agree. Miss Hong Kong is having a serious identity crisis. It is mixing up the former admirable ideals of wisdom with beauty, the shortcut to a star search, and the trash of pseudo-reality TV. Having Eric Tsang as host all those years didn’t help any either.

    9. Sand says:

      I’m not for smoking, but smoking is pretty common isnt it? Lots of tvb actors and actresses smoke.. Or are beauty queens not allowed to smoke?

      And rallying ur friends and family to vote is bad? Who doesnt?

      • TVBFanatic says:

        I chuckled at the comment that she picked up smoking “accidentally” – how does that happen? Did she trip and fall onto someone’s hand that had a cigarette in it and she took a puff?


    10. Boourns says:

      How the hell does someone “accidentally” pick up peas and stones from the ground and eat them? I seriously hope this is just a bad translation and she didn’t really do this. I would think that eating stones is a worse habit than smoking!! Seriously, this Tammy Au Yeung sounds dumber than a box of rocks (no pun intended).

    11. Crystal says:

      Ugh if Tammy wins the pageant , there is seriously something wrong. She failed the intelligence department with a F+ already….

    12. mi says:

      the first one on the left… she looks a lil bit like Sire Ma, don’t you think ?

    13. Maria says:

      Caitlin Upton got really famous because of her saying similar stuff to Tammy.

    14. sushiroll says:

      Im watching the semi finals right now and apparently its viewers choice to pick top 5 or whatever to go into finals. I’m thinking why not just hold a final once and for all like they always do every year. I bet TVB hasn’t got the money so they are doing this dodgy semi final set up. Everything looks so cheap-the setting, the backdrop, the lightning, the clothes.

      • pandamao says:

        actually back in the old days, Miss Hong Kong was split into 2 parts, as they have it now.

        I personally prefer the two parts since it gives the audience a better opportunity to get to know these contestants.

        It actually cost more to hold 2 different ceremonies than it is to hold one. So in terms of cost, back in the days 2 live audience ceremonies cost the most and then current method and cheapest would be 1 live ceremony.

        In terms of the clothing, i agree – classless. The black and white plaid really made some of the contestants look really bad. the swimsuit looked more like lingerie.

    15. sushiroll says:

      My favourite is number 12, Karen Leung. She’s not the prettiest but she’s got the “it” look. I’m sure number 17 is going to get into top 3 no matter what.
