John Spainhour Arrives at Torbay for the Mr. World 2014 Competition!
And lets all heave a corporate sigh of relief now that we finally have a Philippine rep to the 2014 Mr. World competition!
Congratulations to Fil-American John Spainhour for being THE guy and mostly, congratulations to Cory Quirino, franchise holder of Mr. World Philippines for another photofinish winner. Cory is gaining the reputation for holding pageants/screenings at the 11th hour and YET coming up with winners like Miss World 2013 Megan Young, Miss World 2011 1st Princess Gwen Ruais and Mr. World 2011 1st Runner-up Andrew Wolff!
And now we have John Spainhour!
Apart from his romantic-sounding name, John’s assets include a chiseled yet boyish face, rock hard muscles thanks to his military background and a hot 6’1″ presence on stage. He also is quite the boyscout being always prepared…. prepared enough to fly out the day after he was announced THE chosen one. The announcement that John was Mr. World Philippines was made on May 29, 2014, Thursday, at the Glorietta 5 Atrium in Makati.
In a phone conversation with Cory, she told me that May 30th was the very last day our contestant could fly off and arrive in time for the competition. In fact, John is already there and is busy getting to know his co-competitors as I type. The competition is two weeks long with the winner being announced on June 15, 2014.
So what are John Spainhour’s chances of winning?
This blogger thinks that the lowest he could get is a runner-up slot and yes, the possibility is high that he could win specially since he is not new to this kind of competition being a former Century Tuna Superbod winner. The Philippines has also gained much favor with Julia Morley, chairman of the Mr. World organization ever since Cory Quirino took the franchise.
With all that on our side, John Spainhour now has to do a Megan Young by stunning the judges and pageant organizers not just with his good looks (which the other contestants already have as well) but with his character, personality and willingness to rise above himself and serve others.
Here’s the blurb on John Spainhour’s official contestant page in Mr. World 2014:
