Due to the server crash at the Miss Hong Kong 2012 final, the 'One Vote Per Person' failed to capture HK citizens votes for Miss HK and audience were furious when the TVB judges took over to decide the winners. NOW TV took advantage of the failure and created their own "One Person One Comment, Vote For the True Miss HK" which went from August 30th to 31st on Facebook and their website.
NOW TV announced the results last night. On Facebook, 70% voted for Tracy Chu, Jacqueline Wong got 21% of the votes and Carat Cheung only got 9% of the votes. On the NOW TV Channels 100 and 102, the results were Tracy Chu got 38% of the votes, Jacqueline 36% and Carat Cheung 15%. There were 11% who didn't like any of the top three.
Based on Netizens' votes, Tracy Chu is the true winner as she took a huge lead ahead of Carat on the votes. Gaining so much support from audience, Tracy feels happy and satisfied, however, she feels its good enough that she got the second runner-up title. She said: "I don't think its necessary to overthrow the results. Carat Cheung had performed well all along, she deserved the title. As for myself, I'm already satisfied to know that I'm the winner in audience's hearts. To me, I only participated in the contest because I wanted to get recognition and support."
Tracy and Carat are good friends, and will not feel awkward because of those results. Tracy said Carat took her feelings into consideration, and once asked if she minded the rankings. She also expressed Carat had never complained of her unhappiness in front of her, but she believes Carat also hopes people will accept her and think she deserves it.
Carat: Contest is Over, Meaningless to Keep Talking About It
Carat expressed she will not be upset at Tracy because of these results, but actually she's concerned of her feelings. Tracy's votes were much higher than her's? Carat said: "I haven't paid attention, it's not that I don't want to see it, but actually anything could happen. I'm not feeling annoyed, but I do feel a little unhappy. I'm unhappy because people are just focusing on the votes and not the show itself. Many people said the show was a good watch." When asked if she's worried she won't win the audience's heart? She said there's nothing she can do, but to do her best on her own part, display her good qualities and hope audience will accept her. Did she vote on nowTV too? She said immediately: "No! Actually, Miss HK is already over, it is meaningless to keep talking about it."
