Although actor Eddie Kwan’s (關禮傑) daughter Fabienne Kwan (關楓馨) was regarded as the hot favorite to win Miss Hong Kong 2021, unfortunately she did not place at all. In an interview, the 26-year-old expressed that she was not disappointed, and was already very pleased to have made it to the Top Five.
Lacking eloquence in her communication skills, Fabienne felt she did not perform well during the question and answer segment. She felt that the winner Sabina Mendes (宋宛穎) was deserving of her title due to her “dancing and speaking” skills. “She is also pretty and has a great body. It would be hard for her not to win the crown!”
Reflecting that the pageant helped her to overcome her shyness by focusing on her goals, Fabienne said, “The things that I learned in these three months would normally take me three years to learn. I’m grateful for the opportunity to face these different challenges…. From the start, I didn’t feel as if I was in a competition, because all the girls were supportive of each other.”
Eddie was in the audience to watch Fabienne compete, but left immediately once results were announced. Fabienne stated that her father was not disappointed in her performance. “He just went home to prepare a celebratory event for me!” When reporters asked if she plans on joining the entertainment industry, Fabienne said she would like to try if given the chance.
It turns out that Eddie had booked a hotel staycation for their family of four. Pleased with Fabienne’s performance in the pageant, he said, “She has been working really hard for the past two months, so I wanted her to relax! I spoke with her when she returned to the hotel last night, and she was very happy because the burden has been lifted. I have relaxed as well and am now looking forward to my newest drama The Kwoks or What <我家無難事>. It’s airing–I hope everyone likes it!”
