It’s 2am and the winners of Mr. World-Philippines 2010 have just been announced during GMA-7’s Master Showman Presents. Alvin de Joya, chinky-eyed (Korean-looking) representative from Cauayan, Isabela and one of the tallest at over 6’1″, will be representing the country in the Mr. World 2010 to be held in Incheon, Korea on March 27. He was in tears after being selected as the top winner. First Runner-Up is Jericho Intacto, while Mr. Photogenic Jason Villegas placed 2nd Runner-Up. The two other guys in the Top 5 are Jomar Cosme and Christian Daniel.
Other special Awardees are Jayson Acero (Best in Talent and Mr. Friendship co-winner), Christian Daniel (Best in Formal Wear), Robert John Porter (Mr. Friendship co-winner). On hand to relinquish his title is Emmanuel Mago, Mr. World-Philippines 2007. Mr. World is held every 3 years which explains the jump.
Congratulations , Alvin! 😉
