China Daily published the results for the most wanted men as sperm donors poll for the Chinese women (this type pool is no surprise to me since the Chinese press is rich in lifestyle articles, neglecting the local politics).
1,000 women aged 25 to 35 were asked for the most appealing sperm donor 🙂 and here are the results:
1. Andy Lau – is one of the 5 main actors In Hong Kong he is also one of the main 3 Popstars across all Asia.
The first lead role that made his initial popularity was the TVB series HUNTING in 1982. In the same year, Andy Lau started in his first movie in BOAT PEOPLE. The role of YANG GUO in WUXIA TV serial THE RETURN OF THE CONDOR HEROES made him very popular and soon got the leading role in a movie called ON THE WRONG TRACK(“Wai mit hiu dei che” original title).
An interesting fact is that in 1999, due to increasing governmental controls on the arts after the handover of HONG KONG to MAINLAND CHINA (1997), Andy Lau attempted to leave the country and move to Australia, but governmental pressure on his family forced him to return to HONG KONG. Since he is now no.1 in China, my guess is that he has very good relations with the government.
2. Bill Gates – Microsoft is a famous brand even in China and women started to buy licensed copies of Windows Vista.
3. Takeshi Kaneshiro is a Japanese, Taiwanese actor, singer and model (his mother was Chinese of Taiwanese nationality). A smart guy speaking Mandarin, Japanese, Taiwanese, Cantonese and English (I already admire him) 🙂
4. Liu Xiang – he is the first sportsman entering the top and my guess is that this is again Chinese propaganda for the Olympic Games. This guy broke the 110 hurdles record last year on the Pontaisetrack, won in 13.01 seconds. Anwar Moore of the United States finished second in 13.12 and Aries Merritt was third clocking 13.18. So this guy is great again because he defeated opponents from the United States 🙂
5. David Beckham – is a symbol all over the world. I’m not sure why is he in this top (because of the brand) of because of several commercial interests with Great Britain. My guess is that his presence in the top (along with Brad Pitt) is for PR reasons – this way, the western press is most likely to mention about this pool and find out who is Andy Lau and Liu Xiang 🙂
6. Li Ka-shing is one of the most famous businessmen in the world for his wealth and his business charisma (probably more than 25% of Chinese Intelligence works for him). He is the richest person of Chinese descent in the world, the richest and most influential investor in Asia, and the 9th richest man in the world according to Forbes with an estimated wealth of $23 billion. Again his presence in the top is pure propaganda because the guy was born on July 29th, 1928!!! What sane women would like this rich grandpa as a sperm donor???
🙂 As a joke, I wonder if he paid for this pool – after all, he is better than Brad Pitt 🙂
7. Tony Leung is another famous actor and again I smell propaganda because he is one of the few actors that won in 2000 the Best Actor Award in the Cannes Film Festival
8. Louis Koo – also actor – his Cantonese name is Koo Tin-Lok and his Mandarin name is Gu Tianle. This guy has to be the perfect lover 🙂
9. Lee-hom Wang – this guy is huge – four time Golden Melody Award-winning American singer-songwriter and actor who has achieved highly recognized success in Taiwan, Mainland China, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Thailand and the rest of Southeast Asia – 25 albums 13,000,000 sales (see clip below) 🙂
10. Brad Pitt is strategically positioned in the end (PR reasons) but there is also a symbolic meaning. Brad Pitt was banned from entering China because of his role in Seven Years in Tibet (1997). This is a strong signal that China is changing 🙂
I hope you’ve enjoyed my comments on this top and I hope you’ll make it in top 10 in the next years 😉
