The candidates of the 2015 Mister International Pageant were presented to the media last November 19 at the Sulo Riviera Hotel in Quezon City.
The gorgeous contestants, who came from all corners of the globe, convened in Manila, Philippines for the 10th edition of the most prestigious annual male pageant in the world.
The candidates who came from varied backgrounds like those in business, modeling, and even a former overseas worker, were presented one by one to the members of the press and other pageant supporters. They will then go to a round of activities that will not only have them participate in some pocket competitions, but also give them a chance to see the Philippines.
"There is a lot in store for our candidates", mentioned Carlo Galang, PEPPS president and chairman of the Philippine Host Committee for the pageant. "For one, they will visit Ilocos Norte to see the beauty of the province. They will have fun activities while they are there".
Also in attendance was the reigning Mister International 2014 Neil Perez of the Philippines. He is very excited that the country is hosting the annual pageant.
"It is an honor for us to host Mister International 2015. I really am excited to meet all the candidates and become an example to them," he further added. When asked on his thoughts now that his reign is about to end he quips, "It's a bit sad that my reign will end, but I am very thankful to the Mister International Organization because they have been very supportive of me. I also would like to thank my PEPPS family because they have been behind me 100% of the time. I am also excited for all the opportunities that will happen after I reliquish my title."
Currently, apart from being an active police officer, Neil can also be seen in GMA 7 series "Princess in the Palace" and have been active in various charitable activities.
