The 2018 Miss Hong Kong Pageant was successfully held on Sunday August 28 at TVB Studios in Tseung Kwan O. 20 contestants competed for the crown, and after a two-hour long finale, #17 Hera Chan (陳曉華) came out as the night’s big winner, winning the Miss Hong Kong crown. #20 Amber Tang (鄧卓殷) won first runner-up and Miss Photogenic, while #7 Sara Ting (丁子田) won second runner-up.
The 20 contestants showed off their best talents that night. #11 Samantha Li (李明芙) performed a Zumba number, while #15 Tania Chan (陳苑澄) did a ribbon dance. Hera did a brave yoga performance while hung in the air, and Amber awed audiences with her Chinese dance, earning the praises of celebrity judge and Miss Hong Kong veterans Tracy Chu (朱千雪) and Sisley Choi (蔡思貝). #13 Christy Tung (童銘欣) showed off her drawing skills with a witty drawing of the late Lydia Shum (沈殿霞), while Sara played the piano. #9 Yutori Kudo (工藤佑采) played the violin.
The pageant did receive a few complaints about the strange program arrangements when TVB required the eight fallen contestants to do a last dance number. Some of the girls looked visibly upset during the performance.
Finalist #14 Honey Ho (何泳芍), who was one of the most popular contestants during the earlier stages of the pageant, failed to enter top three. In a later interview, she said, “The three finalists all deserved it. We chose them too.” As for her thoughts on losing, she said, “I was a little nervous. I didn’t do that well during the Q&A stage and talent show.”
As for whether or not she would be interested in pursuing an entertainment career regardless, she said, “I am, but I will continue to work as a diving instructor.”
