After the 2012 Miss Hong Kong first round of interviews took place on May 14th, the Hong Kong paparazzi worked quickly to unearth the identities of the contestants. One of the most high-profile candidates was Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯), neice of Kent Tong (湯鎮業), a former TVB artist and famed Five Tigers member.
Twenty-five-year-old Roxanne Tong was the daughter of former ATV actor, Tong Chun Chung (湯鎮宗). Brothers, Tong Chung Chung and Kent Tong, have focused their acting careers in mainland China in recent years. Tong Chun Chung was blunt in stating that he was not overly supportive of his daughter, Roxanne, entering the entertainment industry. He explained that was one of the reasons why he had sent Roxanne to be educated in Great Britain was to distance herself from the influence of the Hong Kong entertainment industry.
Tong Chun Chung commented on Roxanne deciding to enter the 2012 Miss Hong Kong Pageant, “My wife mentioned it. My daughter is grown up now and since she has already applied in the pageant, I will give her my support. Before she applied, I was not too happy about the matter. She will have to decide on her own path; I will not stop her.”
Kent Tong appeared to be more supportive of Roxanne’s decision to enter the beauty pageant. “She is quite pretty and possesses a good educational background, as well as other qualifications. After finding out that she entered the pageant; of course I support her! It is good for a young woman to learn more. Winning or losing is unimportant. If she wins, of course it is good, as it will broaden her life experience.”
Apple Daily also published photos of long-legged Roxanne Tong partying with her friends. It appeared that Roxanne enjoyed frequenting nightclubs, while appearing noticeably intoxicated with alcohol in one of the photos.
Early Favorite Candidates Followed

After appearing at the first round of interviews for the 2012 Miss Hong Kong Pageant, early favorite candidates were followed by the Hong Kong paparazzi. Sweet-faced Gloria apparently had a close intimate male friend, who was photographed touching her familiarly on the neck while Gloria chatted on her cell phone. Gloria did not reject the man’s advance. Readers also sent in photos of Gloria attending large parties, which were dotted with male friends.
It was discovered that 22-year-old model, Wingto Lam (林泳淘), was a former member of girl band, Lacey Lacey. Wingto had assumed the stage name of Halen earlier and did not experience success under the group.
Vienna, the candidate appearing with a large phoenix tattoo on her back, allegedly did not pass the initial round of interviews for the 2012 Miss Hong Kong Pageant. The selection committee reportedly did not like Vienna’s prominent tattoo.

The paparazzi also followed 19-year-old Serena Chen (who resembled Viann Zhang 張馨予) and Christy (who was dubbed as a Michelle Chen 陳妍希 look-a-like). The women were discovered going shopping at separate locations and meeting with friends respectively after the interview.
