$65 Million To Marry Daughter, Plus Business Capital

A Hong Kong shipping magnate has offered quite a bounty for a potential husband for his daughter after rumors began flying that she eloped with her lover in Paris earlier this year.

Cecil Chao Sze-tsung told the BBC that his daughter, 33-year old Gigi Chao, is a “very good woman with both talent and looks”, and that he just wants to find a suitable partner for her. Offering up $65 mil may not be the best way to go about finding “suitable”, but there will no doubt be a large group of men willing to step up and claim it.

Chao insists that reports of his daughter having married girlfriend of seven years Sean Eav are false and that she just needs a good man. He also said that aside from the cash, he will help out the potential suitor in starting a successful business venture.

“It is an inducement to attract someone who has the talent but not the capital to start his own business,” Mr Chao said. “I don’t mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted.”

Despite his pleas for a traditional marriage, Chao says he would never force his daughter into something she didn’t want to go along with.

    How about this? If she has a personality and is nice, you can keep the money and I will marry her for free.

    • Tom

      Dude, do you think this guy is reading the comments section here. This is not a dating site and the guy is not going to find his daughter’s future husband in the comments section.

    I have played sports almost all my life, and still really enjoy doing so. I was in Boy Scouts all the way through my Eagle Scout years. I believe in honesty, loyalty, faithfulness, good and open communication, deep passionate kisses for hrs in a relationship. I BELIEVE THAT THE EYES ARE THE OPEN WINDOW OF THE SOUL. I grew out of the stupid stage before I was married. I do not believe in 1 night stands or X dating as well. I want to find someone that we can share deep and honest feelings with each other. I want to find someone that we can have great memories and grow old with each other. I want to be able to have children with you if we were together. I do not believe in nothing less than 110% in a relationship, because that what makes a health relationship. YES, family is extremely important in life. I want to make the significant other feel like she is the princess of my eyes. I am tired of all the B. S. games and would like to get to know all of you like mind, body and soul! I love the outdoors, events, reading books, movies, dinners, cooking, quiet evening just watching t.v. cuddling under a warm and cozy fire, playing in the snow or boat. I have a huge heart that does not want to get crushed. I hope you do not going for the hills but I wanted to be upfront with you. I do not time for head games. I enjoy doing charity work for amputees around the world and working with geriatric patients. I realized that faith in this world can go a long way, so don’t give up in life and push forward then you will succeed at it. I had to leave some stuff out due to the privacy.

  • TrueLove

    Most of these comments are hilarious. For all you fellows that think the father will read your comments and find a husband for his daughter based on your comments, you guys are too funny. Let’s be realistic: the father is not going to hand over $65 million to just any loser that wants to marry his daughter. You can be sure the right candidate has to meet the father’s prerequisite.

  • Mi Mi

    All yall need 2 kill ur self, who the does that, u basically stealing her slow ass

    • Mi Mi

      Typo: who the fuck does that

  • JM

    All he has to do is get a male employee in his shipping company whom he knows is generous and kind-hearted. He can even ask a married man employee to leave his wife and marry the daughter like what Saddam Hussein did when he told a pilot to give his wife to him Saddam in exchange for promotion and the pilot could not refuse. I think it was in the movie Midway that a Japanese admiral asked a soldier to marry the admiral’s daughter and the soldier did not refuse.

  • JM

    This man is just trying to show to the world that he has money.

  • Djames

  • Noname

    Um, what does his daughter think about this? You can’t really force someone to marry the person YOU choose.

  • bruce trudeau

  • Austin Alexander

  • Lee

    Early in the prenuptial agreement, it mentions the $65 million in bold face large type. On page 33, under article 52, “Severance,” in fine print, it mentions how, if the bride decides she doesn’t like you anymore, Jet Li comes and manually removes your heart while you watch.

    This beautiful lady is happy just the way she is, seven years with the same woman is a successful love connection already in progress. I witnessed many of lesbians come out of that type of lifestyle to a straight one, get married, have children, and live a healthy productive life with the right man, but if God, is not in the equation hello, it probably want work out. Many have tried time and time again and it has been proving that money can’t buy you happiness, so to her father take the money off the table and to his beautiful daughter of Asian decent, that are men here that are crazy about Asian women. Cecil Chaos, their are men out here that can fill all your desires and fulfill every pleasure you could ever imaging only if you open yourself up to the possibilities. “From a real real man”

      Used Cecil name instead of Giving name in previous article, very sorry.

  • Colin

    Great, now I can put my charm for the older woman.

    I need the sign up sheet! Then let the best man win.
    Good match of Education and Experience with hers. Tall kids to suit her daddy’s demands. Top it off; they’ll still be pure blood Han with a young papa to take care of them.

    Since we’re Chinese; should be safe to say we got a family record to show. Very long life. My grandparents 3 are alive in the 90s. They are great grandparents since my two oldest cousins are married with kids. My parents are still alive and married. yay! lol

  • Sam

    I am fit and am Chinese living in Canada. I am perfect for her. Trust me, I never lie about these things.

    All I ask in return is an advance of $10 million. I am a very proud person and I would like to be able to provide for her from the income from my business, which is yet to be decided.


    Dear Mr. Hong Kong shipping magnate. Just let your daughter be happy and let her live her life as she pleases. You don’t have to buy happiness for your daughter, she can find happiness on her own. Just be happy that your daughter is happy. Just give your money to charity. I hope you and your daughter find peace. K.C.

  • Oonagh

    I am perfectly willing to divorce my husband, and let her have mine. He’s awesome. I mean in this economy you gotta be open to new ideas when planning for your children’s future.
