Justin Lee vs Edison Chen: Who wins?

Justin Lee, 28

The son of Taiwanese billionaire businessman Lee Yueh-tsang was often photographed at nightclubs and was seen as a "golden bachelor".

Claim to infamy:

Next Magazine published an expose on Lee's sexual escapades last August.

Taiwanese police then said they had been investigating him since July 2011, after a woman reported that she had been drugged, raped and filmed by Lee.

Police found his complete collection consisted of 48 folders containing 93 videos and 176 photos, saved under the women's nicknames.

The Female Lead:

Model Maggie Wu, 29, who had a short relationship with Lee five years ago. She disappeared from public view for four months.

"There really isn't anything much to say for now."

The others:

Well-known Taiwanese models including Terri Kwan, Bianca Bai and Ruru Lin.

What happened:

Lee evaded a summons for questioning and went into hiding for about three weeks, before surrendering on Aug 22 last year.

He was sentenced to 22 years and four months in jail on Tuesday for sexually assaulting nine women and filming the acts.

He was also ordered to pay NT$14.25 million (S$612,000) to 12 of his victims, who had sued him for a total of NT$75 million in damages.

He said: He told Taiwanese media: "They've gone too far. We agreed to be filmed together. How can they go back on their word?"

Asked about the women whose eyes seem to be shut in the photos, he added: "They were sleeping. Some of them were just drunk."

What now?

Lee's lawyer told reporters that he would appeal against the ruling.

Our take:

Lee wins hands down in the douchebag scorecard. Blaming the women totally makes him a loser.

He was also made to strip in court so that a mole on his body could be identified and linked to the man in the photos and videos.

He also wins in the douchebag department for calling his sex folder "collectionz". At least spell it right.
