During yesterday’s Press Presentation of the Mr. World Philippines 2018 Official Candidates, we were all expecting to see just fifteen (15) contenders based on earlier reports. But lo and behold, a 16th name was added on the PR list. And he was a pleasant surprise during the introductions.
Candidate #9 Ameen Sardouk of Parañaque City is a 27 year-old Fil-Lebanese who studies Export Management at the DLSU-College of Saint Benilde. He is a competitive basketball player who stands 6’4”. You will remember him as a Finalist of Century Tuna Superbods 2016 (watch video below) when he was 25.
Ameen is expected to provide a tougher competition to the original line-up of candidates. Aside from a towering height, he has this pleasantly engaging personality — not as effervescent as Andrew Wolff but with the right amount of charm to leave a good first impression in both public events and pre-pageant activities. What’s more, his athletic ability on the hardcourt could be a major plus factor if compared side-by-side with the other comers.
Watch out for more of Ameen Sardouk!
