A Chinese billionaire is offering $1B Hong Kong dollars -- or $143,400,000 CAD -- to any man who can turn his lesbian daughter straight.

Cecil Chao Sze-tsung told a Malaysian newspaper his daughter is single, despite the fact she had a commitment ceremony with her longtime partner in 2012, and it's not too late to change her mind about men.

But Gigi Chao told the South China Morning Post her father could offer up his entire fortune: "I don't think my dad's offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive."

She also said her partner, Sean Eav, was "distraught" after Chao's father's latest offer.

Chao was outed by her father as being gay when he announced his initial offer in 2012. Since then, she has become an advocate for LGBT rights and founded the group Big Love Alliance.
