Yesterday ATV's Mr. Asia Contest 2012 held the auditions for Mainlanders. There were a total of 20 contestants that participated. The first choices were 'Twisting Butt Sammy Shum' (Cho Lo Ha, #7), 'Uncle' (Chiu Fong Wah, #1) and 'Cunning William Hu' (Ho Siu Ping, #17). Number 7 was on stage showing off his beautiful eyes to the judges and even started doing a butt-twisting dance. Uncle (#1) is a 46 year old, who danced a mutated version of popular internet sensation, Psy's Ganggam Style. Number 17, showed off his charming poses.
The ones with decent looks included, "Tender Pakkho Chau" (Man Yu, #3) and "Pirated Tian Liang" (Suen Wang Chiu, #5) and the ones with decent body figures were "Powdered Face Muscle Man" (Lee See Tung, #15), "Refined Law Lok Lam" (Lau Kit, #14) and "Big Version Spencer Leung" (Hui Chi Kit, #11).
"Uncle" is 46 years old this year and has a 22 year old daughter, he expressed: "Actually before I came here, I called and asked is 46 years old too old? I felt a little ashamed to be competiting with other handsome guys. However, this is an opportunity to help boost my confidence. I am not participating in this contest for fame, I'm already 46 and can give it a try. (Does your family support you?) Yes, but I didn't know I had to wear swim trunks, I didn't have the nerve to tell my friends."
'Pirated Deep Ng' (So Yuk Wah, #12) and Chan Chun Yuen (#19) didn't have a very good body figure and only relied on their speaking skills to win the judges' favor. So Yuk Wah clearly expressed if he qualify for the finals, he will be loyal to ATV and vowed to 'stomp down' on TVB. Chan Chun Yuen expressed he found many investors to invest into ATV.
ATV executive (Yip Ka Bo) was one of the judges. He expressed it has not been decided on how many Mainland contestants there will be in the finals because they still have to look at the qualities of the other local contestants before deciding. He hopes to have a total of 30 contestants in this contest. As many of the contestants were unprepared for the audition, Yip Ka Bo denied that they were pulled in on short notice.
