The contestant who went by the name of ‘Zorro’ (Christian Lacsamana in real life) was one of the top leaders all throughout. He even got Best in Swimwear. But it was during Top 10 and Top 5 where he clearly stamped his class as he delivered answers that were both articulate and well-thought of. When he quoted an article in the Philippine Constitution for his answer about LGBT discrimination concerns in the country, the title was practically in the bag. And I was no longer surprised that the 29 year-old did well, being a MAPEH Grade 7 teacher at San Juan High School in Mexico, Pampanga
Four other finalists – 1st Runner-Up ‘Calvin Klein’ (Jhapett Raymundo), 2nd Runner-Up ‘Perry Ellis’ (Kenneth Balboa, who got Best in Sport Wear and Formal Wear), 3rd Runner-Up ‘Prada Milano’ (Jose Diaz) and ‘Hummer’ (Jose Ricamonte Karganilla) stayed in the hunt till the wee hours of Sunday morning.Congratulations to all the winners, as well as to F Philippines’ CEO & Founder Wilbert Tolentino, Publicist Ryan Soto and Director Rodgil Flores (of KF) for a successful holding of the search.
It was a full-packed venue that had a lot of ‘clans’, supporters and followers coming in droves to witness the whole event. 🙂
