Carrie Lam Lei (Traditional Chinese:林莉), born 25 March 1980 with family roots in Chaozhou, Guangdong, is a Hong Kong television presenter and actress affiliated with TVB. She was also Miss Hong Kong 2005 2nd runner-up.
Miss Hong Kong
Carrie competed in the Miss Hong Kong Pageant 2005 alongside Tracy Ip. They were in the same Top 40 group, The Modelling Group, competing to be in the top 20. In the end, Tracy won the crown while Carrie took 2nd runner-up.
Typically, TVB sent the second runners-up of Miss Hong Kong to represent Hong Kong in the Miss International Pageant. As Carrie is 2nd runner-up of 2005, she should have competed in Miss International 2005. However, due to the Miss International entry deadline to be before the Miss Hong Kong pageant took place, TVB opted to send Miss Hong Kong 2004 1st Runner-Up, Queenie Chu to the pageant instead.
Life after the pageants
She signed an artist contract with TVB after her reign was over and entered the entertainment business. She hosted the TVB show "E-Buzz", then left the company after her contract was over. She is now a full-time model with Starzpeople and occasionally works with TVB, hosting "Money Smart" and having a cameo appearance in Moonlight Resonance and Gem of Life.
On December 12, 2011, she also had a cameo appearance on Episode 72 of "Running Man" Hong Kong Special, a popular South Korean variety show.
