Five Asian winners in the international pageant stage for 2016 so far
Even in male pageants, Asian men are not lagging behind
Thailand won Miss Tourism Metropolitan International as well
To date, 2016 has been a harvest-filled year for Asians in the global pageant stage – both female and male categories. Miss International, Miss Supranational, Miss Grand International, The Miss Globe, Miss United Continents and Miss Tourism Metropolitan International have reigning winners from the continent courtesy of Kylie Verzosa, Srinidhi Shetty, Ariska Putri Pertiwi, Dimple Patel, Jeslyn Santos and Chalisa Amanda respectively.
On the other side, Mister World, Mister Model International, Mister Tourism World and Man of the Year are also now being held by Asians via Rohit Khandelwal, Narapat Sakunsong, Okkar Min Maung and Karan Singhdole respectively.
And the year is not over yet. With three more finals coming in soon – Miss World, Miss Tourism International and Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International – I bet the number will increase.
And mind you, I did not even include Miss Asia which has a Filipina titleholder as this contest is continent-focused.
Truly, Asia is in its best year of performance in international pageantry. 🙂

Pareho din sila ng logo. Pero the winner here is Fil-American, di ba?
The same thing happened to Miss Supranational a few years back, nung kakapanalo lang ni Mutya. The Poland-produced version has since been held reliably and has even added a “Mister” so mukhang that is here to stay…for now.
