Chua was noted by fans to have rejected the advances of a male participant Chen Yue.
Many speculated that it was because she was already dating Wang.

> Former Hong Kong pageant finalist and yoga instructor Jessica Liu confronted and publicly called out a man who stalked her and repeatedly took photos of her, reports Sin Chew Daily.
The 25-year-old wrote on Instagram that she ran up to her stalker and demanded that he delete the photos.
“He refused to open up his phone. If he has not done it, why was he running away?” she said.
Liu urged other women to have the courage to confront perverts.
“I know many women have met perverts who take their pictures but chose to remain silent and let things go. But when I am in that situation, I would always voice out and chase them down.
“Why are we choosing to keep silent after being subjected to harassment? It is the perverts who are in the wrong (and not us), ” she said.
Liu was once a flight attendant with Thai Airways and had worked as a yoga instructor.
She is now an actor with Hong Kong broadcasting company TVB.
