Miss Hong Kong 2012 Will Be Chosen by Viewers
The highly anticipated 2012 Miss Hong Kong Pageant will be held on Sunday, August 26, 2012. This yearís 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 pageantís 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!
