On July 30, the 2017 Miss Hong Kong contestants finished their fifth day in Taiwan. The 12 girls, ages 17 to 24, greeted the reporters for the first time in swimwear. Jessica Hsuan (宣萱) and Andrew Yuen (袁文傑) were the surprise celebrity guest judges.
The girls filmed their segment at the Spa Spring Resort in Taipei. Out of the 12, Juliette Louie (雷莊兒) stood out with her tanned glow and athletic figure—standing at 5 foot 7, Juliette’s vital stats were 34.5-26-36; her abs also stood out from the rest of the contestants.
“It wasn’t really done on purpose,” said Juliette, when asked about her abs. “I think it’s genetics, but I do exercise often.” She added that she had to take a break from working out when she injured her back while she was still studying in Canada. It wasn’t until the Miss Hong Kong pageant when she had recovered well enough to exercise again. As for her proudest feature, Juliette said, “My legs and height.”
Popular favorite Kelly Ng (伍樂怡) bust is her shortcoming, but she has an agile, balanced figure. She actively keeps fit and doesn’t find herself to be on the losing side. “I prefer balance, I love how I look,” she said confidently.
Nicole Wu (胡美貽) is actually much more voluptuous than she looked, with vitals stats of 34-23-35. She doesn’t think she has a particularly good body, but added that her mother is also very voluptuous. Asking if she had confidence during the swimwear segment, she said she would feel more confident if she lost more fat on her thighs and arms, and also add more muscle in the process. She doesn’t want to go on an intense diet, as she wants to have energy during the competition.
17-year-old Mandy Yau (邱晴) has the height, but is showing some slight tummy fat. The other girls are all as fit as they are professional—reporters highlighted Suki Wong (黃瑋琦), who they think will be the pageant’s black horse. Though Suki is confident in her looks, she believes that she can be more fit. On the other hand, Regina Ho (何依婷) was nervous about greeting the press with only a bikini, but at the end of conference, she believed she did okay.
By the end of their Taiwan show, Angela Lau (劉穎敏) was fouled, bring 12 girls down to 11. The girls have already returned to Hong Kong and will be preparing for their final round.
