A 27 year-old Health & Wellness enthusiast of GNC Armal from Beirut, Lebanon was proclaimed as the inaugural winner of Mister United Continents 2015 last night at the Tanghalang Pasigueño. Kamel Raad defeated sixteen (16) other delegates on his way to becoming his country’s first international pageant titleholder this year. He is my top pick for the victory.
His court includes 1st Runner-Up Bobbi Rahman Tehgu of Indonesia who gave it a good fight till the end. 2nd Runner-Up is Kristian Denver Diaz of Canada, with Antonio Chimbanda of Angola getting 3rd Runner-Up honors. To complete the Top 6 are 4th Runner-Up Nguyen Quang Huan of Vietnam and 5th Runner-Up Deepaj Sharma of India.
While host delegate Reynaldo Cataluna III did not make it to the winning circle, the 3rd place finish of Mister Canada (who has 100% Pinoy lineage) makes up for the same. Together with the bets of Albania, Australia, Bahamas, Dominican Republic and Guam, he finished in the Top 12.

After the pre-pageant night last Wednesday, the finals of Mister United Continents 2015 will come to a climax tonight with the selection of the winner among the seventeen (17) candidates. A couple of new favorites have emerged, including Mister Angola Antonio Chimbanda (left photo) who looks adorably dashing in his Onesimus Barong Tagalog and Mister Dominican Republic Larry Taveras. Somebody whispered to my ear that height has become a significant consideration (as expected
) among the judges, and this will not augur too well for a couple of them despite being tagged as potential winners.
Let’s see who will show consistency and take his bid to victorious heights. The top finisher will have the honor of becoming the first-ever Mister United Continents.
Best of luck to everyone! 🙂
