See us in bikinis and trunks? Fat chance

Both of them chickened out from a bold bet they made with the Hong Kong media.

And as The New Paper found out over the weekend, there is zero chance they will fulfil it.

Hong Kong television stars Bosco Wong, 32, and Niki Chow, 34, were in town to promote their new hit thriller series A Change Of Heart.

The pair had reportedly promised Hong Kong reporters in July that they would don swimming trunks and bikinis in public if the 30-parter achieved an average Nielsen rating of more than 30 points.

Each point represents 64,200 viewers. A rating of 30 means an audience of more than 1.9 million people.

When the show aired in Hong Kong that same month, it lived up to its hype and even peaked at 32 points during the final three episodes.

But Wong and Chow went back on their word.

At a recent promotional event at TVB City in Tseung Kwan O New Town, they brought along sexy swimwear, but merely posed with it. Wong elicited laughs by draping a red bikini top over his chest.

On Saturday, Wong told The New Paper with a grin: "Actually, I'm still fine with fulfilling the bet proper, but like I said before, it has to be a group effort by the leading cast members. I wouldn't do it if it's just myself.

"The main reason we couldn't do it was that Niki and (fellow actor) Michael Miu were not free over the last couple of months. Niki had filming obligations in China and Michael was overseas on holiday.
