The fourteen contestants in the 2011 Miss Hong Kong Pageant appeared in swimsuits for the first time while fiming in Taipei, Taiwan, making the climate soar. Grabbing recent headlines due to old photos of her numerous ex-boyfriends surfacing, contestant #3 Whitney Hui (許亦妮) appeared to be the most voluptuous according to her official figure measurements on TVB.com.  However, at the swimsuit photo shoot yesterday, Whitney shockingly revealed thick thighs and a thick waist, allowing other contestants to outshine her!

#13 Gemma Choi Grabs Attention With Busty Figure

Among the contestants at the swimsuit photo shoot in Taipei, contestant #13 Gemma Choi (蔡慧欣) from Great Britain, grabbed the limelight and shocked the crowd. Perhaps Gemma’s swimsuit was a bit small and did not cover the underside of her breasts properly. Onsite staff members had to adjust her bikini top for her. Since Gemma repeatedly blinked and rolled her eyes dramatically, she successfully attracted the press’ camera spotlight. Contestant #10 Lena Li (李天縱), also successfully boosted her “dumpling chest” and posed exaggeratedly in “Chok positions” before the cameras.  As a result, Whitney Hui’s limelight was stolen by the other contestants.

 As one of the hot favorites in the 2011 Miss Hong Kong Pageant, contestant #7 Sandy Wu (胡中慧), stood out with her 33.5-inch long legs and sweet smile. Sandy easily threatened Whitney Hui. Despite possessing plain looks, contestant #15 Wyling Leung (梁蔚翎), had an uncommon pair of “missiles.” Her chest vibrated in a similar fashion to an earthquake of 7.5 magnitude!

Jayne: There are some pretty contestants in the 2011 Miss Hong Kong pageant. I like #3 Whitney Hui and #13 Gemma Choi. Who are your favorites?

The contestants look good in their bikinis too. I think the contestants this year are better quality than last year’s pageant.

      The black flip flops that the contestants wore for photo shoot were very ugly. Strappy silver heels would have lengthened their legs more.

      #7 Sandy Wu has a very pleasing figure with her long legs. Although facial features, I like #3 Whitney Hui and #5 Rebecca Zhu. #13 Gemma Choi has a sweet face and voluptous figure.

      The women have their own respective advantages…it depends on what the judges prefer on the night of the pageant.

        I was too lazy to enlarge the pictures too. But at a quick glance, these girls look ok and seem to look a lot better than last years contestants for sure. However, I have always felt that in order to be a true MS Hk, you have to have a lot more than just looks.

        I have stopped watching MS Hk for many years since it has gotten really boring and the quality of the contestants have been lagging… I also don’t feel that the pageant means much anymore because they seem to allow plastic surgery unlike in the past which I feel is a big no no. If you allow plastic surgery, then anyone with money can easily transform themselves into a beauty. If that is the case, then what is the point of a beauty pageant anymore?? These pageants no longer mean anything to me anymore… I miss the old days where th contestants were required to have natural beauty, were talented and more intelligent… I guess things can never be the same anymore…

          I think TVB still prefers it when these girls don’t have any rumors of having done plastic surgery. However, it’s not TVB’s fault and it’s really hard to implement a requirement of having no plastic surgery. TVB will have to go further to investigate each and every contestant and it would take up too much time and resources. Also, many of these girls will get surgery after winning to increase their chances of success in the entertainment circle. I know Tracy Ip and Kayi Cheung are examples although they are still nobodies.

          ” I miss the old days where th contestants were required to have natural beauty, were talented and more intelligent”

          Were they ever required to have natural beauty? I know plastic surgery wasn’t that prevalent back then and contestants who had surgery were frowned upon. I think it was in 1987, one contestant withdrew because she couldn’t withstand the pressure from the media who claimed that she had surgery. I don’t think it was a requirement, but just a preference that HK culture valued at the time.

          Yes, in 1987 it was Chingmy Yau who had to withdraw due to plastic surgery rumours.One of the contestants spread those rumours so she had to withdraw since people did not like not for doing that. Even if plastic surgery was done back then, it was definately not anywhere half as common as it is now. Also, it wasn’t that hard for them to investigate if they had plastic surgery or not. IT is easier for some than others. I know that a lot of them back then did not because I see them many years later and their features have not sagged so you kind of know. People that have plastic surgery done have a lot of fake features that would sag with time…

          Natural beauty? Lol, they all have makeup so can’t say they are “Natural beauty”.

          The plastic surgery is still unaccepted up to now. However, if they can do very well and none can’t realize, the matter won’t be given out.

          @Fox,
          Yea, I guess none of them are natural beauties since they use make up and all. But make up is something not as dramatic as plastic surgery. You have seen people without make up right? Not just artists but even normal citizens so they have to wear make up.
          I think that even though plastic surgery is still not acceptable, but it is definately way more acceptable then it was back in the days.

          Because in the past, the cosmetic dun develop as strong as now.

          One more reason: The environment. In the past, the air is cleaner so not many troubles with skin. Now, a lot of dust and other stuffs are destroying the skin. That’s why ppl need more cosmetic products to cover.

          How would TVB investigate? The truth is, TVB can’t spend all their time investigating on who did plastic surgery because 1) they don’t really care as they value attractive artists whether this beauty was achieved through surgery or not and 2) the pageant didn’t explicitly state that women who has had plastic surgery can’t participate.

          One line in the requirement section claims that participants must not have been married or pregnant at any point in time. There were rumors earlier that Whitney was pregnant before and a TVB director stated that unless there is concrete evidence, they won’t attend to those rumors.

          “I know that a lot of them back then did not because I see them many years later and their features have not sagged so you kind of know.”

          And we would only know many, many years later. That doesn’t show how TVB can investigate on who had surgery. Carol Cheng is one example of who’s skin sagged with surgery. I don’t believe Charmaine ever had surgery, but she isn’t aging that gracefully either. One’s skin can sag for reasons other than having received surgery.

          Nicole Kidman would have looked beautiful without Botox. She wouldn’t look old. With Botox, it frozen her expression, she looked waxy, almost doll like and very weird. She shouldn’t have messed with her nose and looks. She was already beautiful, now she just looks weird.

          Of course Botox is bad for you. I actually did some research on it due to curiousity. I heard that is bad for your nervous system and will damage it in the long run. It can get addictive as well just like plastic surgery and make up. I have also seen people who use botox have some really strange expressions as you guys have mentioned. Therefore, it is pretty much impossible for them to deny that they have used it before.

          Since we are on the topic of plastic surgery, here is an interesting article about one of the make up artists exposing celebs who have lied about having plastic surgery. I agree with him and glad that he is telling the truth.

          @Chriselle,
          When you sag due to normally aging(or other effects on aging) and plastic surgery sagging, it is different. Also, Charmaine smokes and all so it doesn’t surprise if she is sagging more than a normal person who doesn’t smoke even though she probably did not have any plastic surgery.

        • Chriselle replied:

          I know many TVB artists smoke to ease their stress due to the long working hours, but I didn’t know Charmaine was one of them. I shouldn’t be so surprised since she’s one of the tops artists and films more than others. I just thought she was going to take care of her health and skin more. I remember in an interview where she said she a woman’s hands determines her age so she was very cautious to not wash dishes at home, and not even if her mother paid her. (Weird since she can just wear gloves.)

          I meant to ask what are some long-term side effects of using Botox, but it seems like HTS answered my question.

          I’m not sure if it was due to Botox or plastic surgery since Vivien Yeo never admitted to either, but her chin is sharper and lopsided when she smiles.

          “Usually, women with big breasts have big arms too, but her arms are too skinny. The proportion is all wrong.”

          Lol, I literally started thinking of all the people I knew with big boobs and asked myself if they had big arms too.

          You are welcome and yea I learned something new as well. I always thought how some people are so skinny all over but have really big breasts. The proportion is all wrong and didn’t make sense. I guess now we all know why.
          Plastic surgery is so common and way more accepted now, therefore, I still don’t understand why they will not admit it if they did have something done. If they were braved enough to do it then why are they so scared to admit it?? I know that everyone wants to be praised as a natural beauty, however, everyone clearly knows that many that have had plastic surgery doesn’t even have “natural” looking features anymore, so what is the point of trying to hide and deny it??

          Botox is to prevent aging and wrinkles, right? I don’t know if there are other uses, but does Vivien really need it? She’s only 26 and it was a few years ago when I heard about those lopsided rumors.

          Sharon was never really that pretty, IMO. And in her early 30’s, I guess age is catching up on her.

          Tavia and Charmaine are the last TVB artists I would expect receiving Botox. I still think Tavia’s nose is sharper in Rippling Blossom than in her past series.

          @ Chriselle: Botox also helps to have the V chin. It’ll destroy the muscle and then make the chin smaller.

          That’s why Vivien used it.

          You can take a look on Gillian Chung’s Botox ads to know more about that. Ppl also use Botox to have small legs.

          Sharon has very beautiful skin and legs. Her skin is like flawless. She might not look the best but her legs are definitely one of the best.

          I don’t know about Charmaine but I blv that Tavia used botox in the mouth area. You can see that the muscle around this area move kinda funny when she yells or cries (MOL or MR to refer). I have a client who was a staff of Global Beauty (Marie France) – a HKer. He said that many TVB actresses (dun reveal name) are his clients in using botox.

          hmm i never thought about that.

          But as for the plastic surgery verses natural beauty comment, I’m gonna stay out of that one. There’s people who take risks for beauty and there’s those that’s god given, but it doesn’t really mean anything. Ultimately they’re recruiting new female actors, so if i was the employee, i honestly couldn’t care less to how they got to where they are.

          Personally, I don’t want to pass judgment on people who opt for plastic surgeries. But I do feel there is a need, ESPECIALLY for girls to feel secure about who they are and how they look like.

      • yina replied:

        Other than physical differences, I would say

        1) Skin Color – Darker skin tone gives a more lively vibe
        2) Athletic Tone – When a person is active in sports, they give off a livelier essence about themselves as if they are really enthusiastic about life.
        3) Atmosphere – The crowds and their family members get riled up and cheer LOUDLY. The audience in the HK pageant show is too shy to get on camera. Also, American hosts do a good job, they are not rude and awkward and have a great sense of humor. AND, the producers and directors of the American shows are MUCH better organized and keeps the pace steady and going.
        4) Unexplained Presence – I doubt the number of applicants to the HK one is even close to the number of applicants to the USA one. There are more chances of meeting people with that ‘presence’, that je ne sais quois, that spark.

        If I have to pinpoint the main reason for this difference, is a cultural issue and trying to catch up to modern times.

          It’s true that HK people in general prefer light tone skin. But I think this is the old way of thinking and this preference is changing rapidly.

          But I’m not saying that’t not a good/bad attribute, I was just simply trying to answer SDSPAGE’s question. I just find that skin they’re all light skin toned, it’s boring because there’s no variety and no one stands out. Everyone is playing it safe.

          Yeah. All I can say, the pageants give a different vibe. American one is all about athletic bodies, confidence, personality, cheers etc.
          HK aims for more elegant, “nerdy”, “innocent”, “pure”, self-restrained kind of vibe.

          I think that the HK contestants better just stick to “cheungsam”, the only clothing that they actually rock in. Bikinis? not their thing…

          Did you know that Asians are flocking to plastic surgeries all over the world? The biggest expanding group in the plastic surgery business are Asians. Eye-lid surgeries, chin shaping, leg extensions, removing part of the calf-muscle. You name it. Asians are usually just discreet about these things…

          You know the whole thing about Asians are the ones who seek for plastic surgeons the most. I don’t know if that’s true, and I wouldn’t just believe any report or statistics out there. Hollywood isn’t doing so good on the natural look either. So I really don’t think it’s about that, it’s about self-esteem.

          As for the confidence part, it’s typical for a Chinese to be taught to be humble and modest and nice. So I think if a girl acts confident in the pageant show, she’s going to be seen as cocky and obnoxious. (And I’m sure, those haters will be women.) So the confidence is a tricky issue here as to how HKers react to it.

          Of course I know that Asians are flocking everywhere to get plastic surgery. I know that in Korea that plastic surgery clinics there make a lot of money and constantly get business and patients from all over the world. Of course I know that their eyes are because of plastic surgery and the same of eyes get really boring.
          I think I have mentioned that I just saw the Korean series Dong Yi and gosh, every single women in there had the same type of look regardless if they were young or old. My family and I were all joking about how they may have all went to the same plastic surgeon.
          I think that since plastic surgery is unnatural, it will not last that long. You have to keep on doing it to maintain it or else it will really sag with time and the fakeness will show. I have seen that with people that I know in real life too. They look even worse then they did before they had plastic surgery…

          Fox,
          I think Asians tend to not like to suntan as much, which helps prevent wrinkles and skin damage. Too much drinking, smoking, and lack of sleep also ages you a lot faster.

          I do agree that the mixed heritage usually produces beautiful people. I’ll like to add Sonija Kwok, Cecilia Cheung, and Mandy Lieu to the list.

If she is beautiful to me, then I would say that she is regardless of her personality. Her personality and looks are 2 different things. Of course her personality is something that many hate and I am included, but like I have said, if I believe she is pretty/beautiful then I would say so.

          Michelle only had a more defined nose after surgery. Even before that, she was already very pretty, judging from the pics I’ve seen of her in the early 90’s. Not all plastic surgery is bad. In her case, she only got more definition for her nose, which is rather worth it, IMO. She didn’t change her entire face.

          I think its just an overexposure to Western features accompanied by their leadership in cosmetics/promoting thereby making them appear more ‘perfect’ which causes most people to ‘believe’ they have better or more beautiful features. Plenty of studies have demonstrated this effect using secluded groups and really self-integrated communities. So it really depends on culture and exposure. E.g. asians seem to feel eurasians are more ‘pretty’ whilst westerners generally neutral.

          And I’ve seen plenty of plaing and nasty looking eurasians.

I guess they lack the experience=confidence since they are not used to walking around in bikinis with people photographing them. I think that’s their problem, they cannot come across too ‘sexy’, or too ‘arrogant’ yet they have to be ‘pretty’ and ‘modest’ at the same time.

          It’s just weird watching so uncomfortable bikini poses from pageant candidates.

        I think it might be a cultural thing since Americans are more liberal when it comes to showing off their bodies. Of course, HK’s becoming more liberal too. I believe these contestants are only wearing bikinis because it’s a requirement for the pageant. Many of them have claimed at events that they would not wear a bikini after being crowned.

          @Fox,
          Yea, each culture does view beauty differently. I don’t think it is the culture only since each person’s perception of beauty is different. For example, one of my former classmates really liked the asian/chinese look only. I introduced to him one of my Eurasian friends whom was viewed as a really pretty girl by many of my other friends. However, he refused to even give her a glance. Therefore, I think he only liked the really asian/chinese type of look.
          I am pretty westernized so I don’t think that only Korean or asian looks can look good. In fact, I don’t think the natural Korean looks are attractive at all. A lot of the actresses look good because they have had plastic surgery done. I think I have mentioned before that my cousin used to think that Korean girls were really pretty after watching Korean dramas. But after he went on a Korean airline and saw more natural looking Korean girls, he was sooo disappointed since he thought that they wree so ugly and looked nothing like the actresses. From that day on, he never mentioned Korean girls when talking about beauty again.
          Speaking of the best looking royal families, that is also based on a matter of opinion and I don’t think a lot of them look that great. I was soo shocked when I saw that Kate Middleton was listed as the 3rd most beautiful princess! I don’t think she is that great at all and looks old for her age.
          Greek guys can be really attractive as well..I had a greek classmate in high school and he was good looking and very smart.

          Though exactly, what exactly are we expecting here? Are we really surprised that what we see in the media and reality doesn’t match up? Do you think American dramas are a good representation of America?

          With alllll of that said, Korea and the need to be ‘perfect’ is a national disease….so in that note, I also notice the great increase of plastic surgery in that nation.

        What’s wrong with the number 14? I know 4 sounds similar to the word “die” in Chinese and hence, Chinese people don’t like it. Is 14, for the same reason? That’s a superstitious and stupid reason to withdraw though.

        “Whats the big deal about pageants?”

        It’s a stepping stone into the industry/TVB.

        “But guess not all of them want to actresses?”

        Maybe they are tempted by the lures of the entertainment industry and they know that there is a higher chance of landing on a wealthy man?

        “But seriously when was the last succcessful Miss hk?”

        Not every MHK winner is interested in acting. Mandy Cho wasn’t and she made it prettier clear although TVB initially had the intention of promoting her to first lead. It was a failure.

        I assume not every MHK winner can make it big even if they did have the hopes of becoming an actress. They need other factors such as luck with the audience and good timing. Although I don’t think Kate is likable by the audience overall, it was good timing since Mandy declined TVB’s attempt to promote her. I guess the title was handed to Kate and TVB was looking forward to promoting new artists at the time. Linda and Fala also became rising actresses around the same time. Kate was also willing to work hard unlike Mandy, so thus the promotion.

        ” I think Miss Chinese international are more successful?”

        Winners hailed from MCI aren’t necessarily better in acting (at least I haven’t seen a trend yet), but they are indeed more unique in looks and are prettier. Fala, Oceane Zhu, and Christine Kuo are all very pretty and the former two are also charismatic onscreen.

        “Hehehe shouldnt people who were in the acting classes more successful?”

        Back then, yes. Nowadays… anyone know if it still exists? Lol.

        I know sometimes puts these MHK winners and unplaced contestants in their acting class, but the outcome isn’t much different. Their acting is still raw.

          She had to do different face expressions every time the host says a different emotion, and they were mere seconds apart. There was a hand fan covering her face as she changes expressions. Anyone else remember this?

          To be honest I find it SUPER ANNOYING when girls leave their home country and can’t speak proper Cantonese/Chinese and compete in the pageant. Whatever happened to national pride? That’s also a cultural issue.

          I know they’re from overseas….obviously.

          This might be an unfair comparison, but I’m gonna do it anyway. Many of the Koreans who grew up elsewhere can still speak it fluently. Why is this the case then? I myself speak Chinese fluently growing up here in the States. I understood that my heritage is very important. I’m of the very few who can still speak Chinese/Cantonese fluently while also speaking fluent English with no accents.

          I’m not trying to imply anything other than how important for us (Chinese) to not forget where we come from and have some sort of national pride. I don’t really see much of that. I just see a lot of assimilation…..sometimes even shame (from others who I grew up with, and TV media, and Chinese foreigners who go back to HK to act/sing).

          ok…i think im getting off-topic

          Yina,
          Similiar to other immigrant groups that have assimiliated into American society or other overseas location, language skills get successively weaker with each generation. Even our understanding of history, holiday customs, local recipes, and more arcane aspects of the family’s home country decrease with time spent overseas. I am also guilty of this, where I emphasize Christmas more than Lunar New Year now, where my English is stronger than my Chinese, and the food I make has heavy American influences. In the end, social influences shape how we turn out.

          Many Chinese growing up overseas speak heavily accented Chinese or no Chinese at all. It also depends on the family emphasis and whether the language has been strongly emphasized, whether the kids are required to speak to the parents in Chinese. Socially, most kids converse in English. If they have no interest in Chinese entertainment, do not go to Chinese school, and are not required to converse a real, full conversation with their parents and family in Chinese, those verbal fluency skills never get a chance to be developed. People will just choose to converse in their stronger language since it’s easier.

          Mandarin is the hot language to learn given the growth rate of China’s economy. You never know; you might need it for a future job!

          I also wanted to add that I agree with Jayne and I can see with the 3rd generation which are my nephews, they know ONLY English even though we try to teach and educate them our language and culture. But since they are growing up in an English environment it is hard to keep up with their grandparents L1. My cousin in law is a 6th generation Japanese so of course she doesn’t even know a word of Japanese except for her name. She also doesn’t even know much about the culture of Japan. When she married my cousin, her parents were soo easy going and did everything the American way. You can’t blame them since they have been in the US for many generations…

          But if they were truly planning to go to Hong Kong to develop in that society they should at least get the culture andd language down. I mean all their influences probably will be changed by the time they get to Hong Kong. But there are still 3rd generations that speak the language. My little ccousins are fluent in cantonese and in some other dialect whihch I can’t spell in english…But it really does depend on the person. But I think if you are participating in something that is cultured to something like this, you should AT LEAST(!!!) get the language down. Even if you still have a slight accent, and if english (or french) is your main languge.

          Mandy was interested. But, she cannot to play by TVB rules. She gave it a second chance after she came back from her study, but, still unable to adjust.

          “Although I don’t think Kate is likable by the audience overall, it was good timing since Mandy declined TVB’s attempt to promote her. I guess the title was handed to Kate and TVB was looking forward to promoting new artists at the time.”

          I disagree that the title was handed to Kate. She deserves to win. She’s one of the more outstanding contestants in her pageant. She also held herself well against the other contestants in MCI.

          This is true. Mandy may have been interested in acting when she initially won, but she admitted that she didn’t like acting because it was too tiring for her. I’m assuming by tiring she meant TVB’s long working hours and maybe pressure from directors. So yes, it’s due to adjustment issues.

          “I disagree that the title was handed to Kate. She deserves to win. She’s one of the more outstanding contestants in her pageant. She also held herself well against the other contestants in MCI.”

          Sorry for the misunderstanding. I used the wrong words. I didn’t mean the MHK or MCI title was handed to Kate. I meant the promotion that TVB was going to invest on Mandy was given to Kate.

        These days it seems all the pageant winners aren’t ad good as they used to be when it comes to acting. Before everyone was atleast decent, now all the ones that win these pageants can’t speak properly(Christine Kuo…okay so maybe it’s just her). But I really think after they win they should go to the acting classes(or do they? Cause I think Mandy Wong did…that’s why she can act!) I’m not saying that pageant winners suck I just think they should get some kind of formal training before they start acting. And walking a catwalk doesn’t count! But maybe it’s just that the new pageant winners haven’t had enough time to be onscreen or promoted so no one really know how they act!

        I still think that you are not being fair. As I have said, I know that there are going to be some people that speak their native language very well.However, those are few compared to the big majority that don’t and you cannot blame them for it. Like in my case, I speak Vietnamese and Chinese pretty well but I am one of the few in my family that are good with languages and I majored in it in school as well. However, in my family, many of my cousins who were all 2nd generation and were all born and raised in the US don’t know anything much except for English. My uncles and aunts always make them speak anything but English. However, growing up in the US, you can’t help it but know English best. Even though I speak other languages, English is still the one that I know best since I was educated with in school and all.

        I’m guessing that those who can’t speak proper Cantonese are those contestants recruited from overseas. This year there are 6. Normally, it’s only 5.

        In terms of looks, overseas contestants are usually prettier I have to say. Whitney was an overseas contestants. Many of you were saying that the final contestants were better than the one who appeared for the pre-interviews. This is because overseas contestants didn’t have to meet the press on that occasion.

        I also heard that the interview for overseas contestants is easier.

        I’m guessing TVB wants to stretch their influence as far as possible to other countries, so thus the overseas recruitment? They probably don’t care as much for their language fluency.

          That was what I initially thought when all these MHK contestants came in with language barriers and couldn’t speak Cantonese correctly. I thought since this was going to be a Miss Hong Kong pageant, shouldn’t they represent Hong Kong in a good way?

          However, it seems like TVB has been using the pageant to recruit new artists for their company. I’m not sure how much they really care about the MHK image anymore. (Also, in 2009, I remember the contestants no longer wore qipaos and only wore evening gowns. That use to be a MHK tradition.) Although we don’t believe that TVB artists hailed from MHK/MCI are talented in acting, TVB thinks otherwise.
