Mandy Chai is Crowned Miss Chinese International 2015
The Miss Chinese International 2015 pageant concluded on January 25, with Mandy Chai (蔡美霆) from Sydney, Australia winning the crown. Veronica Shiu (邵珮詩) from Hong Kong won first runner-up, while Catherine Hui (惠櫸喬) from New York, United States won second runner-up. Christina Jin (金詩迪) from Auckland, New Zealand received the Miss Friendship award.
Prior to finals night, Mandy Chai maintained a low profile and she was considered as a dark horse candidate. However, her warm smile and impressive Samba dancing skills won over judges’ votes. When the results were announced, Mandy could not stop crying and was surprised by her own win and said she would like to talk to the judges after the show. A nurse by profession, the 22-year-old will consider remaining in Hong Kong and whether she would pursue a career in the entertainment industry after the pageant.
Sweeping the awards at Miss Hong Kong earlier, Veronica Shiu once again demonstrated her strength in dancing by performing to Michael Jackson’s Moonwalk. The 24-year-old was satisfied with own performance and felt that she had already done her best. Commenting on Mandy’s victory, Veronica said, “She deserves the crown as she performed very well and displayed a good sense of humor. Perhaps I lost in this aspect.”
Although Catherine Hui from New York is only 18 years old, she was a hot media favorite due to her curvaceous 5-feet-7-inch figure. During the talent segment, Catherine impressed judges with her piano skills and elegance. A high school student, Catherine’s dream is to become a successful lawyer. Becoming close friends with many contestants, Catherine is sad to see the pageant draw to a close.
