A man of few words he is not. That, in a nutshell, is my first impression of Mister Grand International 2017 Michaelangelo Skyllas from Australia. During the Presscon – held earlier at St. Nicholas Restaurant in Mandaluyong – to formalize his entry to Psalmstre as its latest Placenta for Men brand endorser, this 19 year-old bartender from Sydney had a lot of things to say the minute he got into the groove of our one-on-one interview set-up. And it’s all good. He strongly feels that he thinks ahead of his real age, and prefers to talk about a variety of subject matters with older people more than those in his age bracket.
Angelo – who is 100% Greek and moved to Down Under when he was already 15 – does not hide the fact his entry into the pageant world is something that took him a long time to digest. But when he finally landed in Manila to represent Australia in the inaugural edition of the male competition he won last month, it dawned on him that this could be the chance to make something big out of himself. He is willing to try his luck in Manila for possible career opportunities after the New Year, and who knows where to after.
