All of these shows like “The Bachelor”,” The Bachelorette”, and “Donald Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger”, would make someone think that anyone would take the ultimate indecent proposal. But never would anyone think that someone would pay so much for the right person to marry.
Hong Kong billionaire property magnate Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, has announced a “HK$500million bounty” ($65 million) if a man that is “generous and kind hearted” would please, please, please! come and marry his lesbian daughter, according to the UK’s Telegraph. Chao said:
“I don’t mind whether he is rich or poor,” Mr Chao said. “The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted.”
All of the rush to get his daughter hitched occurred after his daughter Gigi Chao, 33, flew to France and entered into “a civil partnership” with her seven-year partner Sean Yeung, back in April. Since then, her dad has been getting the word out that the rumors of his daughter’s commitment were just a hoax and that she is still very much single.
Surely Gigi doesn’t find it flattering that her father would offer this money for her not to be gay. As you might guess, her Facebook page has hit an astronomical amount of friend requests. Back in 2007, she gave an account of her father to HK magazine that might put into perspective her relationship with her father:
“My father took a hands-off approach in parenting,” she told HK Magazine. “I see him as a friend more than a father. My parents never pressure me with high expectations.”
Obviously, the only expectation was for her to marry a man.
