Choosing Miss & Mr. CHIN is not an easy task. As such, the contestants are scored on 40% interview, 40% onstage the day of the show, 10% for their participation at all of the pre-promotional events that run from May-June and 10% for online voting, which is sponsored by Paul Buceta.
Judges are instructed to look for qualities including intelligence, beauty, poise and grace. Ultimately CHIN Radio is looking for strong spokesperson for their male and female winners to represent their company and sponsors at community events throughout the year as well as next year’s show/picnic. The event rentalscommunicates this to contenders when they apply and also to judges scoring them the day of.
