The Miss Hong Kong Mask Contest 2022 is underway. It is a competition held as a reality tv show and broadcast on a Hong Kong television channel. The special thing about this contest is that contestants and judges must wear masks during the recording process.
In the newly aired episode, the judges selected 20 outstanding contestants from 50 contestants who passed the preliminary round. In the competition for the Top 20, contestants are asked to perform and show off their physique. Strangely, the judges asked the contestants in the top 20 to give presentations about umbilical holes and show off their toes.

In these sections, contestants are required to wear open-waisted shirts to show off their bodies. In addition to the cryptic presentation of the umbilical hole, contestants are asked to let the examiner touch their toes for evaluation. Contestants also go through the challenge of putting fruit for the judges… pedestrian.
Shortly after airing, the show immediately received criticism on social media. Most of the audience criticized the organizers for creating an offensive contest, filled with sexual elements and disrespect for women.
Earlier, this contest made the audience angry when the organizers agreed to let the contestant put two oranges in the chest during the drumming performance. The contestant also had an offensive striptease on stage. After a series of actions that annoyed the audience, this contestant was still allowed by the organizers to go on to the next round.

Currently, the organizers of the Miss Hong Kong Mask 2022 pageant have not responded to negative reviews from the audience. Some argue that, although the nature of the contest is a reality TV show with the aim of taking entertainment as the top, it is inappropriate to broadcast objectionable images for viewing.
The Miss Hong Kong Mask Pageant was held in 2020, as a reality show. Candidates must wear a mask that covers their face during the exam. They are only allowed to show their real faces when crowned. In the first season, the beauty Trinh Doan Ky (27 years old) won the miss crown.
The declining quality of beauty pageants in Hong Kong showbiz
Hong Kong’s beauty pageants have been increasingly degraded in quality and controversial in recent years. In particular, the beauty contest is considered the most prestigious in the entertainment industry of Hong Kong – Miss Hong Kong constantly disappoints the audience because of the quality of the contestants.
The Miss Hong Kong pageant has been hailed as a springboard for the fame of many stars of the country. However, in the past few years, the quality of contestants of this contest has been considered to be downhill. The contestants who participated in the contest did not have outstanding, even controversial appearances.

Since the Miss Hong Kong pageant, many stars and beauties of the entertainment industry of The Port have been discovered such as Ly Gia Han, Quach Thien Ni, Xa Thi Man, Truong Man Ngoc, Ho Hanh Nhi … They have not only outstanding appearance, but also remarkable talent in art.
However, in the last 8 years, many crowned beauties of the Miss Hong Kong pageant have encountered mixed opinions about beauty. Most of the faces who came out of the competition did not have outstanding artistic activities despite joining TVB (Hong Kong) and being facilitated.
Last July, the top 20 of the Miss Hong Kong 2022 pageant debuted to the audience. Many candidates are considered not to possess the right beauty and physique to conquer the miss arena. Their fashion and makeup styles are also judged to pale in comparison to a beauty pageant.

This year, the organizers raised the age limit for contestants. Accordingly, the candidates of this competition include girls from 17 to 28 years old. The contest organizers affirmed that the quality of contestants of Miss Hong Kong 2022 is quite uniform and stable, but the audience has not noticed it.
According to HK01, the reason why the quality of contestants participating in the country’s beauty contests has decreased is due to the lax criteria of the organizers, the abuse of “cheap” entertainment details to attract the media, the overreach of the audience before the rampant organization of beauty contests for many years.
TVB (Hong Kong) has been accused of abusing a contestant’s body show in the Miss Hong Kong 2021 finale to increase views. During the swimsuit performance, the station asked the contestants to pose, so that the camera captured the whole figure from above.
