Miss Hong Kong 2007

What are beauty pageants about? Beauty? Poise? Elegance? Intelligence? I really don't know... Every year, many take part in Miss Hong Kong, as this pageant is a good stepping stone into the entertainment industry. Many past finalists in Miss Hong Kong have now become A-list actresses in Hong Kong and have fans outside of Hong Kong.

Here is a picture of all the finalists this year on TVB's webby.
Contestant no. 3 is the winner. Contestant no. 9 is the first runner-up. Contestant no. 7 is the 2nd runner-up. Honestly, I would not consider all 3 having "winner" looks. Not being biased, even my favorite TVB actresses, Myolie Wu Hang Yee and Charmaine Sheh Sze Man, who were runner-ups in their respective Miss Hong Kong pageants are prettier than this year's top 3!

Don't tell me it's a repeat of the 1993 Miss Hong Kong pageant. It was rumored that TVB had already targetted to sign finalist Kenix Kwok Ho Ying, who was a hot favorite, and wanted her to act almost immediately. Thus, they "prevented" her from winning so she need not travel overseas and "fulfil her obligations" byt taking part in pageants overseas. If it's is really true, maybe the "hot favorite" for this year, contestant no. 2 will receive news from TVB soon...

Just my speculation...
