$65 Million Offered by HK Tycoon to Marry His Daughter Gigi Chao
Who wants to be a millionaire? This is the famous question of a quiz game show. However, you don’t need to exercise your brain cells to become one. You simply need to marry the daughter of a tycoon in Hong Kong.
Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, a 76 year-old property and shipping magnate in Hong Kong, is offering a staggering HK$500 million or equivalently US$65 million to any man who will marry his 33 year-old lesbian daughter Gigi Chao.
Gigi Chao was reported to have married her girlfriend of seven years, Sean Eav, five months ago in France. However, the business tycoon denied this and instead insisted that his daughter is still single and available.
When Ms. Chao learned about the reward offered by her dad, she found it entertaining. She said she will not worry about it until the right man starts courting her. Meanwhile, despite his offer, Mr. Chao emphasized that he will not force his daughter to marry someone she does not like to be with.
Mr. Chao said he hoped to help the successful suitor could start a business. The reward was “an inducement to attract someone who has the talent but not the capital to start his own business”.
“I don’t mind whether he is rich or poor – the important thing is that he is generous and kind hearted,’ the business tycoon said about the ideal man for his daughter.
“Gigi is a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous and does volunteer work,” Mr. Chao was quoted saying to South China Morning Post describing his daughter.
Since the announcement of the offer by her dad, there has been an increase in the number of twitter followers and Facebook friend requests to Ms. Chao. Her latest Facebook status says that she is no longer accepting friend requests.
Ms. Chao’s Facebook profile says that she is currently the Executive Director of Cheuk Nang (Holdings) Ltd., a real estate company with development projects in Hong Kong, Macau, Greater China, and Malaysia. She also runs Haut Monde Talent, a model management and PR firm.
Her about me profile reads: “Helicopter pilot. Social entrepreneur. Creator of expressions in colour and emotion. A woman that cares to look another in the eye and seek what’s behind. Loves to stare at a flower and imagine herself a butterfly.”
