The 24 contestants finishing the preliminary round in the fastest time, including no fewer than 6 female participants, will be eligible to enter the semi-final to be held on the same day, where they will compete for the 12 finalist places. The 12 finalists, comprising no fewer than 3 female participants, will be shortlisted to enter the Final. The Final, to be held from 11:30pm on 15 May (Wednesday) to 12:45am on 16 May (Thursday). Both male and female finalists will compete at the same time, scrambling for buns, which carry scores varying with their locations, on the bun tower within a time limit. The one with the highest total score will be declared a winner, while the one who bags the most buns within the specified time will be the prize winner of “Full Pockets of Lucky Buns”. To recognise their outstanding achievements and add to the atmosphere of the event, an award has been introduced since 2016 under which any male or female athlete who has won the championship three times in the Bun Scrambling Competition will become the prize winner of the “King of Kings” or the “Queen of Queens” for the Competition.
