Earlier in the day, the Miss World Philippines Organization conducted its screening of candidates for Mr. World Philippines 2018 at the House Manila. The good-looking (and nicely desirable) Filipino aspirants trooped to the venue where they were assessed by a panel headed by Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann amd Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Thomalla.
There is a good assortment of applicants who came – models, professionals, students, showbiz upstarts and previous pageant winners.
It’s still too early to tell how the actual competition will unravel for #MrWorldPhilippines2018, but the two aspirants who really stood out today have something in common between the two of them – Italy.
Marco Poli – Fil-Italian who at 6’3” is the tallest enlister today. He has a quiet charm all his own. But once he speaks, one can sense the no-nonsense quality of his answers. He is also one mean chef in the kitchen.
Former Mister Philippines titleholder Denver Hernandez – a full-blooded Filipino raised in Italy who is a force onstage and off because of his very masculine appeal, much like a discerning brute who mixes Pinoy suave with Italian machismo. He represented the country in the Dominican Republic during Men Universe Model 2017.
Let’s see if these two guys can sustain the marked impressions or allow the other comers to get in the way of getting closer to the titles at stake. They are shoo-ins to become Official Candidates, after all.
