Mr. World 2014 Nicklas Pedersen of Denmark
More than being a certified carpenter, 23 year-old Danish hottie Nicklas Pedersen counts on his happy disposition and big dreams as tickets to fame. After being elected Mr. World 2014 in Torquay last Sunday, he will definitely see a lot of doors opening – opportunities he never thought would come at this point in his life.
And in a previous interview posted by Indonesian Pageants, he revealed some tidbits about himself that were never really discussed all throughout the duration of the competition. Below are excerpts from the same.
On his biggest inspiration in life:
“I would consider my mom as my biggest inspiration. She has always been there for me and supported me in everything I have done. I am very close with her and even though I am living abroad, I make sure to speak with her every week. She taught me to chase my dreams and to make every day count. If it hadn’t been for her, I wouldn’t have had the courage to quit my job, pack my backpack and fly across the world alone. I am forever grateful for the way she has raised me! Being away, I have realized just how important family is and I miss my family very much.”
On the proudest moment in his life prior to winning Mr. World 2014:
“The proudest moment was when I graduated and passed my carpentry test. I struggled a few times during my apprenticeship and was close to quitting at one stage, as things weren’t running as smooth as I would have liked them to. But my mom told me to finish what I had started and not to just run away when things became hard. I pulled myself together and ended up graduating on time and with good grades on my mom’s birthday. To this day today she still says it was the best birthday present a mom could ever wish for.”
On how he prepared for all the physical challenges of Mr. World 2014:
“I really love sports and have always kept myself fit. After being crowned Mr. World Denmark 2014, I have stepped up my training even more. I make sure to go to the gym 4 days a week along with swimming and playing football/soccer on the days I am not lifting weights. Maintaining a healthy diet is just as important as well.”

On his personal fashion style:
“My style would probably be seen as classic preppy. I love my boat shoes and my wardrobe counts numerous Ralph Lauren shirts and polo’s. I wear a lot of blue as well as it is my favorite color.”
On his personal definition of being “The World’s Most Desirable Man in the World”:
“In my eyes “the most desirable man in the world” has to be beautiful inside out. You would have to be lovely to look at and even more lovely to talk to. You should have an amazing personality along with good looks.”

By the looks of it, Nicklas will have the best times of his life as Mr. World 2014. Together with Miss World 2013 Megan Young and the next Miss World, he will travel far and wide (something he is personally excited about) and continue with the purpose-filled advocacy of Julia Morley and the Miss World Organization.
Do your countrymen proud, Nicklas, and aim to be the best Mr. World ever! :-D
