Twenty-three-year-old Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗) was crowned as the 2011 Miss Hong Kong winner at the beauty pageant held on August 7, 2011. Through her beauty and intelligence, Rebecca won the title and lived up to the public’s expectations. Hyman Chu (朱希敏) was the first runner-up, while Whitney Hui (許亦妮) was the second runner-up at this year’s Miss Hong Kong pageant.
Known as “Mainland Niki Chow,” Rebecca studied ballet and graduated from a performing arts program. Rebecca loved dancing and music, while her desire was to do their best to help people in need. Prior to her coronation, Rebecca received the Most Popular Award from guest presenter, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒). When MC Eric Tsang introduced Myolie onstage, he referred to her as “Mrs. Wong” (Bosco Wong’s wife).
During the segment when the Miss Hong Kong contestants’ family members appeared onstage to cheer for their daughters, Hyman Chu and mother shared the experience of participating in the pageant. Hyman cried forcibly, even causing her to lose her false eyelashes. The scene was quite moving and Eric Tsang’s eyes also became wet with tears.
Second runner-up, Whitney Hui, also won the Most Photogenic Award. Hailing from London, Whitney was nicknamed as “D Cup Gi Gi” by the media due to her curvaceous figure. The 22-year-old enjoys reading and cooking. Whitney hoped to contribute to society and help people in need.
Contestant # 6, Nicole Leung (梁麗翹), received the Miss International Goodwill Award. The 26-year-old was a senior marketing director and enjoyed playing the piano and traveling. Nicole was eager to become a successful manager. When the results were announced, Nicole was surprised and very excited upon receiving the award.
Jayne: Congratulations to the winners of the 2011 Miss Hong Kong Pageant! She was the hot favorite to win the crown! I like the qipaos, which looked very elegant in white. The swimsuits, influenced by recent trend in animal prints, was modern looking and sexy. The evening gowns looked atrocious though; too frilly!
