    My favorites are #9 Virginir Lau, #2 Whitney Law, and #15 Sisley Choi. I think Virginir’s looks stand out the most, but need to watch video clips of them to see how they handle themselves before the media.

      Based on the above photos, I agree with #9 Virginir Lau and #15 Sisley Choi. I can imagine them being cast by TVB.

    #9 Virginir Lau looks like Raymond Lam’s BB Karena no? i dont understand how some of these girls made the cut. I think #17 is a mix right? She looks very elegant and approachable. I think she will probably score well . if she knows how to speak Cantonese fluently.

      Number 11 looks like she came from a village (not from France.) Can’t believe she got in. She looks more like a farmer than a Miss Hong Kong contestant. OMG. Contestant before 2010 were all okay but starting 2011 9 out of 10 of them look horrible. It’s a beauty pageant. People are trying to choose the prettiest one. LOL they were called pork chops last year and they asked if they can eliminate all of the contestants. I wonder how these look without that ton of makeup. This is not mean. The truth always hurts.

        Maybe No.11 is indeed a farmer in a french village. Coming from France doesn’t necessary mean she is educated.

      • HeTieShou replied:

        Yea, they are pretty but all have a similar face. I still remember when my family and I were watching the Korean series “Dong Yi”. My second brother usually does not comment on actresses’ looks, but he wondered why they all had the same face, even the older women. He joked that they all used the same mold or went to the same plastic surgeon or something. Even if they all look good in people’s eyes, they have lost their uniqueness which should come with natural looks. What is the point of looking the same as everyone else??

        I don’t think it is fair to compare these 2 pageants since they are just different.

    • Yum replied:

      Wei Zifu It’s unfair to compare the two. First of all, majority of the Korean contestants have probably done some sort of cosmetic enhancement. Plastic surgery is no big deal over there. Even until this very day , many Hong Kong contestants don’t really go that way. Plus, for MISS HK, they’ve banned things like : bra padding, fake eyelashes, heavy makeup and of course circular lenses. However I do think that there are definitely more “prettier” and natural contestants out there than the selected 20. Half of these wouldn’t be considered beautiful. Then again, nowadays a lot of of pretty, SMART girls wouldn’t join these pageants. The title MISS HONG KONG is generally bought with money or some sort of benefit. It doesn’t truly possess the same kind of prestige and respect like its earlier days.

      • Lily replied:

        @Wei Zifu, isn’t that winner Miss Korea 2012?

        Honestly, you can’t really compare Miss Korea and Miss Hong Kong. The culture is very different and the public acceptance or definition of “beauty” is different. Like others had stated, Korea is more acceptable with plastic surgery, therefore it is common to see most of the pageants gone through cosmetic procedures. In Hong Kong, plastic surgery is widely criticized. If someone discovered a pageant had something “fixed” then it will cause controversies. TVB is all about the marketing and rating. If plastic surgery is input in Miss Hong Kong, then it would be over.

      • TVBFanatic replied:

        Why can’t you compare them? Are you suggesting that the Hong Kong girls in these photos haven’t been made up? Both girls in both photo shoots are heavily made up. Just look at the link Nicole posted to see what the Miss Korean contestants looked like BEFORE the makeup.

        If anything, I think it proves that they have far more talents makeups artists in Korea than the do Hong Kong!

        *for more talented makeup artists in Korea than they do in Hong Kong.

        Terrible spelling :P

        And since I’m posting again.. also take a look at how the two different pageants dressed their ladies. Korea? elegance… Hong Kong? Like hostess bar hopefulls :P

      • Yum replied:

        TVBFanatic: Yes makeup and clothes can ultimately change how the contestants look like. But what you see in the MISS KOREA before and after isn’t based on makeup. It’s heavy photoshopping. Plus even when they take off makeup, it’s guarantee that they won’t look the same as the hong kong participants. Koreans emphasize on a different kind of beauty: pale skin, big eyes, slim v jawline and also TALL and small nose.

      Wei Zifu,
      The majority of the contestants in Miss Korea 2013 resemble each other closely, perhaps due to plastic surgery making their features adhere to the same standards.

        Did you look at Nicole’s link Jayne? I don’t think the plastic surgery is as prevalent as one might think. The before shots of those girls are all fairly plain. I say kudos to the makeup artists myself.

        TVBFanatic,
        I had clicked on the after photos only. But looking at the before and after photos now, the differences are due to the same makeup technique and also lots of photoshop. Some of the women’s jawline even appear to be different in the after photos!

    Waste of money to send these below average girls to those destinations just for photoshoots. Spend so much money but eventually crowns an average winner. Some coutries just hold simple pageants and yet their winners are of international standard.

    The clips of them introducing themselves are actually on the tvb website. I like 1 and 17 so far and 9 actually has a bit of a mainland accent, which isn’t a problem but since it’s a Hong Kong pageant, I’m not sure about that.

    A lot of people are seems to be rooting for #9 and #17.
    I reckon #9 looks like Karena Ng; girl next door type.
    #17 is more elegant looking, but I’m rooting for #1 and #15 ^^
    #15 reminds me of Jacklyn Wu who I think is extremely beautiful and #1 is by far the most prettiest even though she’s a little short >.<

    #15 looks too blokish. Most have wierd eyes.
    IMO #1, #8, #9 and #13 are most photogenic out of all pics above. But if I see another set of photos of them, they may look better/worst…so can’t tell from this who (I think) should ‘win’ – looks wise anyways!

    3 out the 4 I picked out now probably won’t make the pass round 1…
