Source – The Hong Kong billionaire playboy who offered nearly £40million to any man who could turn his homosexual daughter straight, has now doubled the ‘dowry’. Cecil Chao raised the reward to HK$1million ($130million) after thousands of eligible bachelors failed to convince his daughter Gigi to marry any of them. The 77-year-old property magnate insists that 34-year-old Gigi is ‘still single’ despite the fact that she married her long-term partner Sean Eav two years ago. Mr Chao told a Malaysian newspaper that despite offering HK$500million, approximately $25million, and 20,000 men registering their interest in taking up the quest, Gigi is still not in a straight marriage. He said that he did not want to interfere with his daughter’s private life, but that he wanted her to have ‘a good marriage and children’. In response, Ms Chao said that although her wife had been left ‘distraught’ by her father’s interview, she found it easier to ignore – even offering to comply with the terms, as long as the man in question donated a large part of the money to charity, and did not mind that she is already married. ‘I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive,’ she told South China Morning Post.
Kind of surprising that he needed to double the dowry, no? Did both Cecil and Gigi not go through all couple thousand of the applications or something? Because if you watch that 20/20 clip from a few years ago, you’ll notice a pretty eligible bachelor in there, putting his heart on the line
So what gives? Why did I get passed over? And I’m not just a pretty face (OK, I do have 2 black eyes in that 20/20 interview that I tried my best to cover with make-up, but chicks love a bad boy. If anything, that should have been more of a primal turn on). We also have a lot in common. Take a look at her Facebook “Likes” page, we’re practically soul mates (notice no snowmobiling, pure class)
I even told her as much…
So I’m perplexed. What part did I mess up? Where did I go wrong in desperately trying to turn a lesbian straight for a large cash prize? I gotta be honest, kind of feel like one of the suitors outside Odysseus and Penelope’s house right now. Feel like no matter what I do, it’s never going to be enough. But that doesn’t mean I’ll stop trying. I’ll win this lesbo lottery if it’s the last thing I do.
PS – Gigi, I have breasts right now. I started working out again, but I’ll stop in a heartbeat if you think the breasts will make your transition to men easier. Something to think about.
