Andy used the “opponent” arrow on Chow, he expressed: “In this film, I pointed at Chow’s head, initially I thought I used too much strength, thus I used less strength in my second time, then Chow told me not to be lazy, thus I make sure that next time I still want to point at Chow.”
In comparison, Jacky and Carina seems to have more “chemistry” as Carina used the “partners” arrow on Jacky, the reason being “acting with him is very comfortable, never expected the God of Songs could act so well too!” Upon listening, Jacky sang praise of himself: “I’m always the most under-rated actor!” Standing by his side, Andy pointed out: “Afraid that this year’s Hong Kong Films Awards, I have to hand over to you.”

Unexpectedly, the most unexpected is Chow! During the game, Jacky choose “companion” for Chow and the reason being: “Regardless to finance and life experience, Chow would give a huge security.” In return, Chow sang praise of Jacky: “Every day woke up 3AM in the morning to make breakfast, send her to school at 5AM, such a good man!” With regards to this, Jacky expressed: “People like us with Chinese zodiac Ox are very hardworking.” Andy added: “I’m also an ox.” Chow then asked the two heavenly kings if they were born in the morning or afternoon, after finding out that Andy and Jacky were born in the morning and afternoon respectively, Chow expressed: “I want to buy both of them, because they are so good!” All present burst into laughter.
