The highly anticipated 2012 Miss Hong Kong Pageant will be held on Sunday, August 26, 2012. This year’s new scoring system will make the beauty pageant more exciting! The organizers have pioneered a brand new judging system which will involve the decision making by 7 million Hong Kong citizens. The Miss Hong Kong 2012 winner will no longer be crowned by the judges, but it will be selected by the TV viewers instead! 

Viewers to Select Winner

Since this year is the 40th anniversary of the Miss Hong Kong Pageant, the organizers sought to implement a breakthrough in determining the winners. In the previous Miss Hong Kong pageants, the judging panel selected the winners. This year, Hong Kong citizens will be able to choose the winners among 10 pageant contestants.

The judging panel of 2012 Miss Hong Kong Pageant will only select the top 3 finalists. The top 3 finalists will then proceed to the questions and answers session, where the viewers will have a better understanding of the finalists. Viewers will have the next 10 to15 minutes of voting time to cast a vote on their favourite contestants. The results will be tabulated live, in which the 2012 Miss Hong Kong winner will be crowned with the highest number of votes.

To prevent any duplication of votes and to ensure a fair and equal standard, viewers can only cast their vote once. Thus, viewers will need to consider carefully within the short span of time to cast their precious vote on their selected contestants. Viewers can cast their votes through phones and online at TVB.com. To prevent any technical hiccups during the voting system, TVB has upgraded their system and engaged software consultants to help with the live-voting system. 

Andy Lau and Carina Lau Will be Judges

This year, TVB has invited Andy Lau (劉德華) and Carina Lau (劉嘉玲) to be part of the pageant’s judging panel. In addition, the other judges include veteran actress, Angie Chiu (趙雅芝), previous contestants of Miss Hong Kong pageants, Mandy Cho (曹敏莉), Charlene Tse (谢宁) and Ellen Wong (王爱伦).

It will be interesting to see how the ten contestants will fare under the star-studded judging panel, and who will be the favorite choice of the Hong Kong viewers!

        Don’t bother. They claimed server was down & results were actually based on judges’ scores. Bet they already knew who they had to place. Amy Cheung who didn’t deserve to be in the finals was placed last minute. And what do you know,….she got 1st runner up. RIGGED!!!!!

    The above picture doesn’t look right. The last 2 girls on the right should be facing the other way like the other girls.

    I sense that there will be controversy surrounding the voting system and the results and ultimately the winner.

    i really dislike this current format. It’s not a pageant, it’s a reality tv show. A pageant should be about style and grace, and choosing the best person. Having contests and contestants voting each other out? That’s not worthy of a pageant imho. if I am a contestant with the chance to vote someone out, I’m going to vote out the prettiest and most dangerous competitor! 😛

    What a shame to ruin the 40th anniversary of the pageant like this. Hopefully next year common sense will return.

      Agreed…there’s simply no elegance left in the MHK pageants anymore.

      I agree and MS Hk has truly lost the elegance and grace that it used to have.I am glad to see Andy, Carina, Angie, Mandy and others come back as judges though. I think they forgot that Angie was 4th place during the first Ms. Hk pageant in 1973.

    I agree that the results are going to be viewed as rigged, if this happens then I think Roxanne Tong or possibly Carat is winning this pageant since Roxanne has won 2 awards and apparently those were based on audience voting or maybe TVB. heh. I find it so wierd there’s only 10 contestants left, which makes it boring.

    I think Roxanne is actually quite good looking among these contestants

      Roxanne has a vixen look. I’m not too sure

      Login or Register before you can reply to vivien
      • HeTieShou replied:

        I agree and I do not know why people say Roxanne is good looking? I think if she looked like her uncle Kent when he was young, then she would be pretty good looking. However, she does not at all. I guess people think she is pretty compared to the other contestants since the quality of this year’s contestants is really poor.

    A lot of them are unattractive but I’m a westerner so I guess I have different standards and ideas on beauty.

    People mention Carat as one of the favourites to win and I think she is ugly. She’s from Vancouver, my city too haha.

    Melanie and Roxanne are who I’d consider the best looking. Ivana is decent too and Wingto seems to have a lot of charisma.

    • HeTieShou replied:

      Once again, I still do not get why many say that Roxanne is one of the best looking. But I guess my taste is different from many others. This pageant should be based on more than looks anyways.

      • Jessica replied:

        Apart from her nose, she’s the prettiest. Notice how I said “pretty” instead of elegant, gorgeous, beautiful, etc. She’s mall girl kind of pretty but still a whole lot prettier than the rest of the girls.

        Who do you think is the best looking?

        Login or Register before you can reply to Jessica
      • HeTieShou replied:

        I guess it is because I am a nose person. I find that even if a person had other nice features, but did not have a nice nose then I do not consider them pretty at all. But even so, I still do not feel Roxanne is pretty. However, she may win due to her connections.

        I forgot to say that I like Wingto and a few other contestants, but Roxanne is not one of my favorites.

        TVB must’ve had in mind who will won the crown. The audience poll is just a cover up of how rigged MHK is

    Oh no! If the voting system is implemented, Roxanne is bound to win,given the fact that she’s voted as favourite by the netizens before. Urgh i agree with HTS too, i find her not pretty. At all.

  14. Nicole says:

    Maybe they will rig it by selecting one popular contestant with 2 unpopular contestants for top 3, thus only the popular one will get more votes?

    But based on performance, Carat seems very strong, although I don’t like her. She is a real pageant girl. She and Roxanne won the most challenges.

    The first five minutes will be the crowning of “Miss HK”.
    The remaining 2~3hours will be TVB asking Andy Lau about his new baby while laughing at newpapers and magazines by saying: “Hey, hey, look at who we interviewed about his new kid. Yeaaah that’s right, Andy Lau”.

    Regardless of who wins, it will not mean anything since Ms HK is no longer the same as it used to be.
