Twenty-three-year-old Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗) was crowned as the 2011 Miss Hong Kong winner at the beauty pageant held on August 7, 2011.  Through her beauty and intelligence, Rebecca won the title and lived up to the public’s expectations. Hyman Chu (朱希敏) was the first runner-up, while Whitney Hui (許亦妮) was the second runner-up  at this year’s Miss Hong Kong pageant.

Known as “Mainland Niki Chow,” Rebecca studied ballet and graduated from a performing arts program. Rebecca loved dancing and music, while her desire was to do their best to help people in need. Prior to her coronation, Rebecca received the Most Popular Award from guest presenter, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒). When MC Eric Tsang introduced Myolie onstage, he referred to her as “Mrs. Wong” (Bosco Wong’s wife).

During the segment when the Miss Hong Kong contestants’ family members appeared onstage to cheer for their daughters, Hyman Chu and mother shared the experience of participating in the pageant. Hyman cried forcibly, even causing her to lose her false eyelashes. The scene was quite moving and Eric Tsang’s eyes also became wet with tears.

Second runner-up, Whitney Hui, also won the Most Photogenic Award. Hailing from London, Whitney was nicknamed as “D Cup Gi Gi” by the media due to her curvaceous figure. The 22-year-old enjoys reading and cooking. Whitney hoped to contribute to society and help people in need.

Contestant # 6, Nicole Leung (梁麗翹), received the Miss International Goodwill Award.  The 26-year-old was a senior marketing director and enjoyed playing the piano and traveling. Nicole was eager to become a successful manager. When the results were announced, Nicole was surprised and very excited upon receiving the award.

Jayne: Congratulations to the winners of the 2011 Miss Hong Kong Pageant! She was the hot favorite to win the crown! I like the qipaos, which looked very elegant in white. The swimsuits, influenced by recent trend in animal prints, was modern looking and sexy. The evening gowns looked atrocious though; too frilly!

    Rebecca Zhu, the one in the middle of the top pic of 3. She looks like Falla Chan, LOL! At first I thought it was Fala from far away. Glad she win, she the prettiest out of that 3 up there.

    Congrats to the winner! Rebecca Zhu does have a very sweet looking face and does show a subtle hint of resemblance to Fala Chen when she’s donned in that white qipao! Hope she would be able to stay in the entertainment circle for long and not fade away!

    As compared to recent past winners of Ms HK, I think Rebecca Zhu does look like she has a higher caliber in comparison. Hope TVB will promote her wisely!

    “During the segment when the Miss Hong Kong contestants’ family members appeared onstage to cheer for their daughters, Hyman Chu and mother shared the experience of participating in the pageant. Hyman cried forcibly, even causing her to lose her false eyelashes.”

    Oh dear, such a dreadful thing to happen (to lose one side of your fake eyelashes and probably look weird/ugly with only the other side remaining) on National TV but it does sound very touching indeed to be able to share one’s success with your mom. :’)

      The only pic I find Rebecca look alike Fala is the one on the top with the long hair down.
      Others pictures she not look that much like Fala.

        @LeilaFan:

        I also feel that she only has a subtle (little not very obvious) hint of resemblance to Fala Chen, it could probably be due to the high and deep cheekbones, pointed chin and long hair, which led to the resemblance (:

    This year show was ok.

    Winning numbers: 5 – 14 – 3
    Scratched: 12.
    15 drop to 14 contestants in the show.

    Any reason why #12 drop out?

    I thought the winner looked sort of like Sonja Kwok in the above picture at first glance. Congrats to all of the winners!! I liked the Qi Pao’s and all, but the evening gowns were a bit weird looking. The cape for the winner is ok, however, could have been better…

    The quality this year was certainly much higher compared to the past 4 years.
    The winner is gorgeous. She does look like Fala especially in the white qipao. I also like the 1st runner up and 2nd runner up.

    the show was kind of bland though, no artist performance or anything.

    congrats to all the lovely girls!

        The crying were so fake, I’m sorry but you see your mother everyday. They made it like they were never going to see their family ever again. Some girls even looked quite ugly crying. It seemed as though one girl started crying the rest followed incase they were missing out on something.

        Even the mothers were a bit lame bringing in teddies and birds nest? WTF! Worst segment of the whole show!

    Congrats to all the winners! I’m quite pleased with the results that 2 of my favorites made the top 3. Hyman was a surprise winner, a dark horse, but she’s very tall and looks quite confident! I haven’t watched the pageant yet, but I think she must have had a good performance. My top five picks were 3, 5, 6, 7, and 13. I’m glad 3 and 5 placed, and happy that 6 won Miss International Goodwill. But how about 7 and 13? Did 13 not even make top 8? Why? Too petite? I think for the most part the audience should be happy with the results since Rebecca was the audience’s favorite all along. At least they won’t complain them looking like pork chops!

    Although the Winner looks good and stuff, but i’m very disappointed that she’s from China, with a few more participants from China aswell. Making it feel more like a Miss China competition rather than a Miss HK… :(

    • Aly replied to :(

      Actually, I think 6 of the 14 contestants are from overseas this year, and among the rest, a few are from mainland or at least has an accent that sounds like they are-like, 5,7,8,10. So I think a majority of the contestants are not born or grown up in Hong Kong. I also hope that the winner is truly a rep of HK, born and raised there so they are more familiar with the history and culture there, but if TVB does not open up for overseas contestants to apply and join, the pageant will have low standard contestants. In fact, there are some girls that even go back to HK to apply as a local contestant even if they are from overseas. Aimee Chan was one of them. It’s unfortunate, but most of the pretty Hong Kong girls go the lang mo modelling route or were scouted already. Or, they have no interest in entering Miss HK. China has a huge market and lots of girls that would love to develop in HK especially if they know Cantonese. Miss Asia does not get as much exposure.

        TVB has their own less stellar pageants overseas markets then those winners compete MCI.

        I don’t know what is the future for Miss HK if they could ease restrictions and make a competitive competition to make attractive or do nothing.

    Congrats to Rebecca for winning! Halfway through the show, I predicted she will win although my support was still with Whitney!

    Wished Whitney was 1st runner-up instead. Hyman was a dark horse whom I didn’t expect to get placed. Nicole not getting into top 4 was a big surprise. Prior to the final show, I didn’t pay attention to Mayanne who made top 4. :o

    Absolutely loved the swimsuits, especially Whitney’s! :D I thought it was a bit weird for some to weird a brown piece with a green piece, however.

    I think this year TVB redeem themselves. I like this year’s theme and the choreography of the dancers. Was the show always this long (almost two hours) ??? Yet they didn’t even have any guest performers. Overall the show was pretty okay. I like the design of the qipaos as well. I was hoping # 6 Nicole in top 3, maybe as first runner-up. I think TVB should promote Rebecca in the future but first, I think she needs to improve her Cantonese more (she will gets more opportunity this way).

    • Lily replied to Summer

      My Top 3 were Rebecca, Nicole, and Whitney, so I thought the results would’ve been perfect if Nicole had been placed. I am, however, happy she got Miss International Goodwill. Hyman is definitely a dark horse of the night, but I can understand why she was placed.

      • Lily replied to Lily

        And although there were no performers, I thought the show was quite touching with the parents and the giving flower to bff part. I’m also glad TVB toned down on the korean songs. I love them, but it’s not very appropriate for MHK. Someone did something right this year. Hopefully next year will be even better as it is the 40th anniversary of MHK.

      This year was really better then the last two or three years past…. If they add a special guest performer and it maybe worth watchable and ratings may go up little more.

      Too bad the publicity of this years pageant was some what low key.

      Next year will be 40th anniversary of Miss HK. So I hope it wont be held in a small venue inside TVB studios.

    The top pic doesn’t do justice for the winner.. I found her really pretty on TV. Not pretty as in better looking than the rest of them but very pretty in general. I think she may be the best looking winner in the last decade or more… Congrats.

  21. cinsin says:

    I think Hyman should’ve changed her name before she entered the contest….

    I watched the second half of the show and this is the first time I’ve watched the show since 2003 lol It was a little more enjoyable than what I used to remember it to be. The girls seemed to show a lot more confidence and didn’t let Eric Tsang and his snide comments get to them.

    Even though Rebecca won, I wonder if they will give her an acting contract. I have a feeling Whitney has a higher chance of gaining popularity if she’s given a contract. She seems to have a more versatile look. TVB doesn’t always seem to like to promote the winner of Miss HK. They generally like the first and second runner-up.

    • SDS replied to cinsin

      Well now she’s stuck with it if she enters showbiz through TVB. Ha! Clearly whoever chose her name has a English vocabulary impediment. They’re only slightly lucky they didn’t use ‘e’ instead of the ‘a’. High five to goddess luck and her 4 dwarves.

    Rebecca Zhu looks like a Mainland actress Rebecca Wang.

    Whitney Hiu looks like Sonija Kwok. The results are alright but it would be better if Whitney is Miss Hong Kong. Her smile is sweeter than Rebecca, but Rebecca has a smaller waist/tummy than Whitney (based on the pictures).

    Why did the judges usually pick a tall girl for the 1st runner up in Miss Hong Kong contest?

    Rebecca definitely looks a lot prettier than some of the previous years Miss Hong Kong. Incidentally I can’t see the resemblance at all between her and Fala Chen. Must admit that Fala’s nicer but Rebecca’s not too bad either.

    Hmmm personally Whitney comes off more as lively and sweet, while Rebecca is more demure and elegant. Both gave really average, bordering inane, answers in their question parts. Between the two I would have thought Whitney to be better since she presented a more affable attitude; Rebecca seemed a bit too wooden.

    Hyman Chu competed in Miss Chinese Toronto 2009 so she has some pageant experience and I’m not surprised she placed. Rebecca was alright…at least she’s a drastic improvement from the past years but for heaven’s sake can they do something about the format of the show? The crying bits were over the top and so affected, it was embarrassing. The pageant producers should watch Miss Universe or Miss World or something to find out how to run a pageant properly.
