The Mr World 2019 candidates were given a rousing welcome at the Novotel Manila Araneta Center (Official Residence) earlier in the afternoon today. Actually, around half of the expected 88 have already checked-in, with the rest arriving tonight and tomorrow to complete the roster for Thursday’s Press Presentation.
Mr Philippines JB Saliba – looking stylish and spiffy in a Barong Tagalog – was on hand to welcome his new brothers. The atmosphere was very festive as loud banging of rhythmic drums filled the hotel’s lobby.
Between now and August 22, the candidates will have their hands full with different activities and fast-track challenges leading to the finals on August 23 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Below are more photos from the said activity.
