Beauty pageant contestants criticised after cosplay photos leaked

The annual Miss Chinese International Pageant will be held on January 25, 2015, with a total of 18 contestants competing for the crown.

Yesterday, the contestants visited a temple in Yuen Long to seek divine guidance in the upcoming pageant.

Contestants' Cosplay Photos Leaked

Contestant #6, Veronica Shiu, who will be representing Hong Kong in the upcoming pageant, was advised by the priest that although she has the opportunity to win the competition, she should pay close attention while wearing high heels. In response to the reading, Veronica seemed undaunted.

"The most important thing is to be your best self." She further added that she regularly engages in exercise. "I'm not clumsy. I can run even with heels on!"

The recently leaked cosplay photos of contestant #4, Jennifer Zhang, and contestant #11, Catherine Hui, generated heated discussion among netizens.

When teased that she has been upstaged by Jennifer and Catherine, Veronica calmly replied, "There's no need to generate news for myself. I believe that the audience will appreciate my performance!"

Representing Toronto, contestant #16, Valerie Fong, was plagued with rumours that she had gone under the knife for plastic surgery. She debunked the rumours and indicated that it was merely the magic of makeup.

She further added, "I have also been dieting these past two years and have gotten much thinner!"

Destined to Win?

On the other hand, contestant #3, Isabella Ng, contestant #5, Holly, contestant #8, Katrina Lee, contestant #11, Catherine Hui, and contestant #17, Erica Chen, all received positive predictions. It was further predicted that Katrina, Catherine, and Erica will place in the top three. Of the three, Katrina was predicted to have the best outcome. She responded, "I'll just try my best. If I say I want this and don't get it, it will be painful!"

Although Valerie also got an optimistic reading, the priest advised that she should continue working hard. Asserting that she is not superstitious, Valerie expressed that she will continue to work hard, "I think that every time I go up on stage, I could work on improving my confidence."
