Miss San Francisco Elisa Santos wins the first award of the pageant -
"Live Audience Most Liked Performance Award" (which is essentially Miss Talent).
She won by performing a pole dance, the same talent she performed
at Miss Chinatown USA in which she also won Miss Talent.
The 15 contestants’ performances ranged from dancing to singing
to playing musical instruments. Rounding out the Top 3 were
Miss Melbourne Sabrina Shi who performed an ethnic dance
and Miss Tahiti Linda Chung who performed a belly dance.
Miss Toronto did not attend the event.

On a side note, a couple days ago, the contestants competed in a speed makeup challenge
sponsored by Colourmix Makeup. The winner of that challenge was
Miss Foshan Arrixy Li. The other 3 that made it to the final round were
Miss Los Angeles Angela Liu, Miss New York Rose Li and Miss Sydney Summer Meng.
Arrixy took home a deluxe prize package from Colourmix containing many makeup products.

Miss Hong Kong is good friends with Miss Hawaii, who happens
to be the Miss Congeniality winner at Miss Hawaii Chinese.
She has a good chance at winning the Miss Friendship award this year.
On a sidenote: the last time Hawaii competed at Miss Chinese International
in 2002, Marjorie Wu took home the Miss Friendship award.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The 16 contestants for Miss Chinese International 2018 met the media
for the first time at a press conference in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Early media favorites include New York's Rose Li who was dubbed
Eliza Sam lookalike, and Vancouver's Cheryl Ng who is dubbed
Linda Chung lookalike. Laos makes it's debut this year (probably following
it's success at international pageants last year). Hawaii and Tahiti
returns to the pageant after several years. Auckland and Bangkok is not represented
this year. Miss Vancouver was lucky enough to be drawn for the practice crowning.

CHINESE PAGEANT PAGE'S PRE-ARRIVAL FAVORITES:
NEW YORK, Rose Li - She has the complete package: brains, beauty, talent, poise and pageant experience.
VANCOUVER, Cheryl Ng - Linda Chung lookalike, poised and beautiful and really shines in interview.
