This round we asked: The loss of which profession would disrupt Hong Kong most?

Contestant 1

Handsome men. Admit it, girls, you wouldn't go to watch a film if the male actor wasn't hot enough to make you drool, would you? So imagine Hong Kong without its ravishing, well-built boys! We fangirls would be forced to live a lacklustre life deprived of a source of intense happiness. This would lead to a low quality of life where nobody is willing to work. Hong Kong's future would be bleak.

Contestant 2

It's easy ... making traditional snacks, of course! Hong Kong is well known for many delicious treats, such as waffles, egg tarts and milk tea. Hong Kong citizens have grown up with these products - they're a part of our fond memories, and continue to have a special place in our hearts. They also provide the energy to motivate us all.

Contestant 3

Gai daan jai (egg waffle) makers! Almost everybody will agree that gai daan jai are one of the most endearing symbols of Hong Kong. Not only are gai daan jai delicious, their bubbly exterior makes them special and different to all the other types of waffles out there. Imagine how disruptive it would be if no one was there to satisfy our craving?

Contestant 4

If McDonald's disappeared, everyone would either burst into tears and hide in a corner ... or go to KFC and Burger King instead, to satisfy their desire to eat fast food. But there's a problem: the feeling just isn't the same. Closing down McDonald's could crush the economy (I'm serious, it's one of Hong Kong's biggest income sources), and more importantly, make people lose their lifeblood!

Contestant 5

The disappearance of bus drivers would cause chaos in Hong Kong. There are very long queues for buses already. Now imagine a day without bus drivers! We would be very, very late and out of energy for work or school. This would definitely drive me mad.

Contestant 6

Athletes. Athletic achievement is a symbol of excellence and perseverance. Hong Kong people strive for perfection and never give up. Many locals are also athletic, and this trait is an essential element in daring to dream. What's more, they look up to athletes who have that attitude. Without athletes to promote this legendary Hong Kong spirit, Hongkongers would lose their motivation and no longer strive for success.

Contestant 7

Hong Kong would face severe disruption if all the fashion editors disappeared. If there were no more fashion magazines or websites, Hongkongers wouldn't have a clue about style. Imagine seeing people trying too hard for the vintage look by tucking their jackets into their sweatpants; or playing with patterns by wearing striped shirts with checkered trousers; or even celebrating Christmas in green dresses and red stockings! Just thinking about this is nauseating. I shudder to think what it would be like if it came true.

Contestant 8

Without baristas, teachers wouldn't get their morning coffee. Without that early motivation, half of them wouldn't be able to get out of bed. With only half of the teaching force at work, this would reduce the number of students able to be taught by 50 per cent. And since every student is part of a larger, unified community, this would wreak havoc on schools and society.

Actually in my points of view the loss of doctors would disrupt Hong Kong most. Just think about that how often do you feel sick? I think everyone must feel ill at least once a year,and who are we going to meet if we are sick? That is doctor.
