I attended the final last Friday at VivoCity. I was quite surprised to see supporters turning up with home-made placards and posters to rally for some of the contestants. It felt as if there was a mini-concert going on.
Overall, I think the event was pretty successful with a healthy turnout of the right office crowd. There was no swimsuit round as per most conventional beauty pageants and contestants need not answer fake “world peace” kind of questions.
Instead, the whole event was like a mega job interview for a bunch of highly confident, well-educated and articulate individuals, vying for the top positions.
The eventual three top winners were all females… what happens to the guys!
Anyway, the winners are overall winner Evelyn Pang, 27, a scientific-affairs associate; first runner-up Meryl Koh, 25, a lawyer; and second runner-up Cai Suqi, 25, a senior marketing executive.
