So allow me to share my Top Ten choices (in the photo grid below) with Mister Poland Rafal Maslak and Mister India Prameet Singh Wahi on top. I am not making any conclusive statement that one of them will definitely win, but they should be up there after the victors are officially announced.
I am feeling Mister Philippines Neil Perez. For a good placement, that is. While I want him to take it all the way, my impression is that he somehow allowed the other strong candidates to take the shine from his favor. Aside from my Top 2, the likes of Brazil, Czech Republic and even Guam may have edged him out one way or the other. Be that as it may, I still see him getting a Top 5 spot.
In the end, I really want to see Rafal or Prameet becoming the successor of Jose Anmer Paredes. But I wouldn’t discount the possibility of a hometown win for Youngho Park as well. 😉
