Look who got chosen as Mr. World Philippines 2015 in a rare two-winners-for-two-consecutive-years-in-one pageant selection. Ms. Cory Quirino surely knows how to drum up a last-minute explosion for the male pageant. Not only did she make the audience gasp in awe by presenting two outstanding choices. She also made them both winners.
Now, Sam (who is with Mercator) will be scheduled for military training with the Philippine Army. And he will have lots of time to prepare for next year’s Mr. World which will become an annual event starting 2015.
Actually, a little birdie whispered to my ear that Sam was supposed to be the 2014 choice and John Spainhour for 2015. But since the latter is already 26 years old and with certified military training, it was decided that the Fil-Persian-Japanese hunk would be a better fit for next year’s edition.
Regardless, we have excellent Mr. World bets already locked in for 2014 and 2015. And I daresay that Mr. World Philippines 2016 will be a more outstanding male pageant production with the long lead time ahead.
Congratulations, Sam! 🙂
