This year's MCI's standards are quite even, but of the more outstanding include Number 17 Miss Hong Kong Mandy Cho, 'Takako Tokiwa lookalike' Number 8 Miss Los Angeles Chui Ching Kit and Number 11 Miss Auckland Lee Chiu Ting.
Mandy Cho reveals that at the moment they are all training together in a hotel, so she cannot go home: "I can't go back to my home now, so if I need anything I have to tell my mum to drop it off at the hotel lobby for me."
Also, Number 12 Miss Vancouver Linda Chung hails from the "Miss Chinese International Cradle" UBC that has produced former MCI winners including Tiffany Lam and Bernice Liu. The filming for MCI will begin on 3rd January in Dalian and the final will take place on 17th January.
