Mr. World Philippines, The Pageant… Happening in May 2014!
Last year, Cory Quirino promised us a full-blown pageant for the Mr. World Philippines 2014 competition and it is going to happen in the second week of May 2014!
She made the confirmation yesterday, April 8, 2014, in a press conference at the Atrium of Glorietta 5 in Makati. Aside from that, Ms Cory also announced that Ayala Malls will partner with Mr. World Philippines and will officially host the screenings of applicants at their malls.
Our last representative, Andrew Wolff, who was hand-picked in 2012, donned the Philippine sash and won 1st Runner up in the Mr. World competition held in Kent, England. The competition is held every two years.
Because of Andrew’s success, Ms Cory is turning the search into a full-blown on-stage competition. She is hoping for 15 to 20 official candidates to vie for the Mr. World Philippines 2014 title. The winner will receive cash prizes, gift certificates, endorsements AND the chance to represent the Philippines in the Mr. World 2014 competition to be held in Torbay, London on June 15, 2014 !!!
“It is not a beauty pageant,” Andrew Wolff insists. He addss, “it’s also not about the prettiest face or the best 6-pack. It’s a competition that tests a man’s character, creativity, sincerety and ability to communicate. You have to be well-rounded.”
Apart from the above, Mr. World takes physical fitness seriously. It’s contestants have to face special challenges in the area of sports and even extreme sports. This is apart form challenges in style, talent and multimedia.
But what kind of man is Mr. World Philippines looking for?
Cory says, “all you have to do is look at Andrew Wolff’s character and you’ll know the kind of man we’re looking for. He must have a fiery spirit, with guts, brains and intellect. He can be full Pinoy or mixed, it doesn’t matter as long as he can represent the Philippines well and become the most desirable man in the world!”
