The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many industries around the world, specifically the airline and travel industry. To show solidarity and support, TVB has organized a talent acquisition competition titled Triumph in the Skies Competition <衝上雲霄大選>, named after the 2003 dramatic series of the same name, to find fresh new blood for the entertainment industry.
The competition recruits members of the airline industry, including flight attendants and pilots, to compete for a chance to win 100,000 Hong Kong dollars prize money and an opportunity to audition for a drama.
The competition also hopes to educate viewers about the airline industry as a whole.
Today, TVB announced its 15 finalists, which included five female flight attendants and ten male pilots and flight attendants. Among the 15 included co-pilot Brian Lee (李傑志), a former member of the boy band Square who has ten years of flying experience; and Keith Shing (盛勁為), Louisa Mak’s (麥明詩) rumored boyfriend.
A standout contestant is Derek Mak (麥大力), a pilot in command with ten years of experience. The witty and smart Derek quickly warmed up to the cameras, and has expressed his wish to try out acting and hosting in the future.
Finals will be held on December 26, 2020.
