Good looks must run in the Lam family.
Former TVB hunk Wilson Lam's daughter, Denice Lam, has been crowned Miss Hong Kong 2022. The event was held yesterday (Sept 25).
Denice, 27, who is a model, says she didn't think she would win the pageant.
"Actually,I still can't believe that I've won because I felt that my performance wasn't very good," she told Hong Kong media after the event.
Denice was a hot favourite right from the start of the competition. Obviously, some wondered if Denice had an unfair advantage over the other contestants, especially since her father was once a popular artiste on TVB.
Denice disagreed, telling hk01: "In the past few months, I've put in a lot of effort. From maintaining my figure to improving myself, even though I can't say that I deserve this title, but I did work hard to earn it."
Denice acknowledged her father in her speech after winning. She spoke facing the camera as if talking to her dad, saying: “You asked me not to fool you when I asked you if I should join Miss Hong Kong. You see, I got the crown now.”
The 1.8m beauty beat out 18 other contestants for the crown. Cecca Xu, 25, a bank analyst is first runner-up while 26-year-old programme recruitment specialist Joey Leung is in third place.
Denice's father Wilson was one of the hottest actors in Hong Kong in the 1980s and 1990s. Back in his heydays, Wilson was named "one of Hong Kong's most handsome men" by the media. He retired from acting in 1996.
Miss Hong Kong 2022 was hosted by Eric Tsang, Carol Cheng, Natalis Chan, Chin Ka Lok and Lawrence Cheng while Grasshoppers and Leon Lai were the guest artistes for the night.
