The Miss Hong Kong Pageant (Chinese: 香港小姐競選), or Miss HK (港姐) for short, is a beauty pageant organised by the leading Hong Kong television station, TVB. In 2012, for the first time, every HK citizen with valid HK identity card was allowed to vote for who gets which position given the shortlisted three finalists. Nevertheless, this had to be abandoned at the last minute supposedly due to a server breakdown.

Recruitment[edit]

All participants have to have a Hong Kong ID or be born in Hong Kong (with a valid birth certificate). The age requirement is 17–27 as of 2011, though the upper age was previously up to 25. It should be noted that early contestants, such as Deborah Moore competed at as young age as 16.[1] While there has been other Miss Hong Kong pageants in prior years producing notable titleholders such as Judy Dann (1951), Virginia June Lee (1953), Michelle Mok (1958), Laura da Costa (1967) and Mabel Hawkett (1970), the current annual TVB pageant began in 1973. Apart from the top prize winner, first runner-up and second runner-up prizes, the pageant also has other consolation prizes that vary slightly from year to year. Many Miss Hong Kong contestants have gone on to have movie careers as it is quite typical for the top contestants to garner television contracts from TVB.

  • Overseas Recruitment: Applications are available in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, any TVB rental store in the US, Fairchild TV station, Ontario, Richmond, British Columbia, and any TVB rental store in Canada. Delegates have to send in their applications before the deadline. TVB, organizers of the pageant travel to cities in the US and Canada. They include: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, and Vancouver. TVB would choose a certain amount of delegates to interview and would call them to interview. Besides personal interviews, delegates have to wear swimsuits chosen by themselves and walk around in it. Delegates are chosen and return to Hong Kong in late May to compete.
  • Local Recruitment: Hong Kong. Applications are available in Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, United Kingdom, and Europe. Delegates have to send in their applications before the deadline. Weeks later, primary and secondary interviews are conducted. Top interviewed finalists are chosen and they record a reality TV show (like 2006) to choose the deserving semifinalists to compete. They joined the overseas delegates to form the top event finalists.

The pageant is traditionally televised into two events, although this is not always necessarily the case in recent years. First, a preliminary event is held where 12 finalists are selected from a group of candidates, the number of which is usually around 20–25 (with 30 being the maximum). Then a final event is held, culminating in the announcement of the winner and the first and second runner-ups from the 12 finalists. In some years, the field is narrowed down to a final 5, from which the runner-ups and winner are chosen. Often several contestants dropped out of the pageant before the televised preliminary, thus there would be a candidate with #30 assigned to her, but only 25 or so contestants.

Non-human participant in Miss Hong Kong Pageant 2013[edit]

In Year 2013 Miss Hong Kong Pageant, an unusual participant had joined the local recruitment which was a non-human being – a dolphin named Ruby (Chinese Name: 白海樂), nominated by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Hong Kong to drive awareness of the plight of her species in Hong Kong. According to WWF Hong Kong, Ruby was "a true native and symbol of Hong Kong, Chinese white dolphins are creatures of majestic beauty who are facing escalating threats in their Hong Kong marine habitat. Ruby only has 61 peers left in the HK waters when compare to 158 of them in 10 years ago. Through her nomination into the pageant, we hope to raise mass awareness on the true beauty yet grave plight of the Chinese white dolphin as reclamation, increasing marine traffic and polluted waters rapidly contribute to the startling decline in their numbers," said Samantha Lee, Senior Conservation Officer, Marine of WWF-Hong Kong.[2]

Wai Yin Association[edit]

Wai Yin Association (慧妍雅集) is the official association for all official contestants (i.e., those that made it into the semi-finals). It is a registered charity. It was established in 1982 to help the citizens of Hong Kong.

Controversial contestants[edit]

  • 1981 Winner Doris Law 羅佩芝 was deemed disqualified and was dethroned when it was discovered that she had used her sister's health documentation. Therefore, 1st runner-up Irene Lo 勞錦嫦 was crowned first place.
  • 1987 Contestant Chingmy Yau 邱淑貞 was asked not to compete in the finale after a controversy claiming she had had plastic surgery on her chin was considered as bad publicity for the show. During the finale she had to pretend she decided to withdraw from the competition due to health issues.
  • 1997 Winner Virginia Yung 翁嘉穗 and First runner-up Vivian Lee 李明慧 caused controversy when they were involved in a love triangle with Hong Kong businessman Yau-Ching Wu 鄔友正, which resulted in a public feud in 1998. Yung and Wu were eventually married in 1999.

Notice that Vancouver has the most Miss Hong Kong winners from the overseas. They had a record of four consecutive winners from 1997–2000. 2000 was the only year where the top 3 delegates were all from overseas. Even though the 2007 pageant had the top 3 all from the US and Canada but Grace Wong and Lorretta Chow travelled to Hong Kong to compete in the pageant, so they are recognised by TVB to be local delegates not overseas delegates. They did however come from the overseas.

Miss Hong Kong at Miss Chinese International Pageant[edit]

Hong Kong is the most successful city at Miss Chinese International Pageant. They produced 3 winners, 9 first runners-up, and 3 second runners-up. The city either places in the top 10 OR wins an award every year. The city has only failed to place in the top 5 for three times only (1994 had no top 5 announcement). Vancouver has the most winners, four, and all of them won in a time span of 5 years. However, Hong Kong finished as 1st runner up for four consecutive years, a record which hasn't happened since 1993.

Prior to 2000, all the winners competed at Miss Universe, with the exception of Michelle Reis (1988) and Winnie Yeung (1996). In 2009, Miss Hong Kong 2008 winner, Edelweiss Cheung refused to compete in the pageant, reportedly due to health reasons. The first runner up, Skye Chan competed instead, making her the first non-winner to compete in MCI. Miss Chinese International Pageant 2010 was held on 5 November 2010, and therefore, Miss Hong Kong 2009, Sandy Lau did not in 2011. Sandy Lau was the second Miss Hong Kong winner not to compete in Miss Chinese International.
