The 28 MCIP contestants met the press on January 6. Michelle Yim’s niece and daughter of actors Norman Chui and Shirley Yim, Erica Chui (徐穎堃) has not only inherited her father’s “big hero nose”, but also her mother’s features. As a pageant expert, she has been participating in many beauty contests back in her home country Vancouver. Currently rumored with actress Rose Chan, her brother Edward Chui congratulated Erica on Weibo for being crowned a three-titled champion.
Tipping Daughter in Top Three
Although Erica is coming in with many celebrity connections, she did not mention about her family background at the press conference yesterday. Instead, her chest caught the audience’s attention and she stole the limelight. Filming in mainland China, Norman Chui said, “I am very confident. The results are not as important as to win experience. However, she has participated in many beauty competitions. She has experience and has seen great things! (Oppose daughter in the industry?) I am confident that she will enter top three. If she enters the entertainment industry, TVB will definitely offer her a contract. Three or four years ago, I persuaded her to join the Miss Hong Kong Pageant, but her boyfriend turned down the thought. But, she has dumped him now. I told her too! (Ask MC Eric Tsang to lend a hand?) He knows what to do. Haha!”
Aunt Michelle Yim Supports, Erica has her Own Strengths
Although Michelle Yim is not Erica’s nominator, but the two often keeps in contact. She said over in a phone interview, “I have been paying attention to her. I told her to keep calm and try her best! (Confident?) Yes! Her calmness is her advantage. (Prepare soup?) Her training schedule is tight and I am busy with filming The Great Eunuch. I will wait and see!”
Coming in with celebrity connections, I do not see it as an advantage for Erica.
