The 25 Hunks Competing in Mr. Republic of the Philippines 2015
I had the pleasure of attending the press presentation of the 25 hunks competing in the Mr. Republic of the Philippines 2015 male pageant. No, I don’t really cover male pageants but since I was free and still feverish with the recent victory of Neil Perez in Mr. International 2014/15 in South Korea, I decided to check this out.
And I did not regret it! I got to meet all these good-looking totoys (LOL) and macho men and found it refreshing to see guys, instead of girls, face-off on the pageant stage.
I just have one little critique which is actually not a little thing. Several of our handsome cuties need to work out more in the gym. Our beauties in Bb. Pilipinas are more buff than many of you, naku naman! But there is still time to shake off those inner tires and put life into those tiny chests and arms. The coronation is on March 6, 2015 so boys, get your butts moving!
Three titles are at stake in this pageant: MR. WORLDWIDE INTERNATIONAL 2015, MR MODEL OF THE WORLD INTERNATIONAL WCOPA2015 and MR. RUNWAY MODEL OF THE WORLD INTERNATIONAL 2015. The three winners will have the chance to compete in international pageants abroad and will win half a million pesos each.
