Mr. World Philippines 2018: 16 Official Candidates

After an unprecedented harvest of three major global titles last year, the organizers of Miss World Philippines are set to make pageant history once more as they proudly kick off the preliminaries for the Mr. World Philippines 2018 pageant.

This year's Mr. World Philippines pageant serves as a prelude to “the search for the world's most desirable man,” the biennial Mr. World pageant, which will be held in the Philippines for the very first time on January 27, 2019 at Resorts World Manila.

Miss World Organization founder and CEO Julia Morley first made the official announcement through a Facebook post last April 3, sending Pinoy pageant fans in a fit of excitement and jubilation.

Since its inception in 1996, the biennial pageant has been held predominantly in Europe, and only twice in Asia (China, 2007 and Korea, 2010).

The Philippines has joined only thrice, and past Filipino representatives include Mr. World 2012 1st runner-up Andrew Wolff, John Spainhour (2014), and Sam Ajdani (2016).

Unlike conventional male beauty pageants, Mr. World is a two to three week competition designed to test the candidates in a variety of ways through a series of challenge events, interviews and a final stage show. These challenges test every aspect deemed necessary to be "The World's Most Desirable Man."

There are also collective points earned through the team based elements of the challenges, with the contestants split into four teams throughout the event.

Miss World Philippines National Director Arnold Vegafria welcomes the challenge of staging the Mr. World 2018 pageant in Manila.

Vegafria emphasized, “This is the right time to harness the collective strength of a united brotherhood of men; a time to take pride in our cultural diversity; to build bridges of cooperation and mutual understanding regardless of race, creed or political persuasion.”

“This year, as we attempt to mount another pageant spectacle of epic proportion, we shall never lose sight of our main objective: the spirit of charity and compassion. This is the legacy that the Mr. World pageant seeks to perpetuate, as we call on a new breed of young men to look beyond their vanity and pride, and channel all their energies to more meaningful and purposeful action.”
