They may have become good friends with one another outside of the competition but put the 20 Miss Hong Kong finalists on a catwalk and the niceties are off as they bid to make it to the final 10.
Even though some of the contestants experienced a wardrobe malfunction while sashaying down the catwalk in a specially-designed swimsuit for the pageant, it was not enough to throw them off their A-game.
China News reported that the swimsuit made at least five contestants show more flesh than they had intended, while a contestant's belly bulged out in the swimsuit.
The one-piece also helped accentuate the assets of three contestants, one of them who made it through to the next round.
The 10 finalists who will vie for the Miss Hong Kong 2013 crown are:
Kendy Cheung (張敬仁)
Moon Lau (劉佩玥)
Virginia Lau (劉溫馨)
Sisley Choi (蔡思貝)
Grace Chan (陳凱琳)
Acca Sum (沈桂澄)
Karen Leung (梁家欣)
Tammy Ou Yang (歐陽巧瑩)
Peggy Tsui (徐韶蓓)
Vicky Chan (陳偉琪)
