Lousia Mak crowned Miss Hong Kong 2015


The magnificent finale of Miss Hong Kong concluded with the crowning of Louisa Mak Ming-sze as the winner and the new Miss Hong Kong. Louisa is a Straight-A student and is a Cambridge law graduate and will now represent Hong Kong at the Miss World 2015 pageant. Mak caused quite a buzz when in the second round of her pageant interview held in June, Mak didn’t answer when asked about Hong Kong’s reform package. However, she did mention that she believed in democracy and the freedom to vote.

When Mak was in her High School, she always wanted to become a politician and even the Hong Kong chief executive someday. In 2012, the TVB for the first time planned to select the winner through public voting. But the system crashed during the show amid the heavy pour of voting. Therefore, the winner was chosen by a panel of experts and judges.

However, in 2014 the public voting again gained attention and this time it came with a condition of “one man one vote”. Also the voting was relevant only after the judges came out with their top 10 finalists. Veronica Shiu Pui-sie, a university student, was crowned Miss Hong Kong 2014 after winning more than 156,000 votes out of the total 200,000, outnumbering the first runner-up, Erin Wong Cheuk-ki and law degree graduate Katherine Ho Yim-kuen.

In addition to announcing the winner, the finals of Miss Hong Kong 2015 also had two runners-up. Ada Pong was adjudged as the first runner-up and Karmen Kwok was adjudged as the second runner-up.
