Just as I predicted, the Aussie eye candy won the entire finals competition which lasted for 90 minutes in total.
Congratulations to all the winners of Manhunt International Male Supermodel 2022:

2nd Runner-Up: Elijah Van Zanten of the USA 🇺🇸
3rd Runner-Up: Tran Manh Kien of Vietnam 🇻🇳
4th Runner-Up: Cas Hagman of the Netherlands 🇳🇱
The trickiest part in making #FinalPredictions for Manhunt International Male Supermodel 2022 is in choosing the ones with the best potential to do well in commercial modeling and build a killer modeling portfolio that will bring him close to different projects here in the Philippines and around the world.
Among the candidates this year, there are the real-looking handsome guys you can possibly see in different ads and those whose faces exude character for editorial shots. Below, I have combined ten (10) aspirants who possess both. They are:
Lochie Carey of Australia 🇦🇺
Daniel Jares of Peru 🇵🇪
Alexander Calvo of Spain 🇪🇸
Marcus Max Karsten of South Africa 🇿🇦
Joshua de Sequera of the Philippines 🇵🇭
Elijah Van Zanten of the USA 🇺🇸
Cas Hagman of the Netherlands 🇳🇱
Zacharias Ktistakis of Greece 🇬🇷
Tran Manh Kien of Vietnam 🇻🇳
Samuel Albert of Canada 🇨🇦
As to who among them will wrest the title from Paul Luzineau tonight, it can be anybody’s guess. But I am placing my bets on the guys mentioned above.
Best of luck to all in the Finale!
Below is my #1 choice for the title – Lochie Carey of Australia
#Introducing: Manhunt Philippines Male Supermodel Joshua de Sequera
This 25 year-old Property Specialist and Volleyball player stands 6’4” and will represent the Philippines in Manhunt International 2022 which will be held in the country from September 24-October 1. He is the father of Jacob- a one year old and a half toddler who is his main source of joy. For the uninitiated, he is the son of supermodel and TV actress Marina Benipayo.
Joshua is preparing hard for the international modeling competition and promises to give it his best, knowing fully well how consistently successful the country performs in pageants and like-natured contests.
The son and daughter of two former Bb. Pilipinas titleholders grabbed two of the six titles at stake in the finals of GLobal Asian Model Philippines 2019.
Joshua de Sequera, son of former Miss Maja Pilipinas (but who went on to Miss World) Marina Benipayo was adjudged Male Winner of GLobal Asian Model Philippines 2019. Ashley Subijano Montenegro, daughter of Miss World 1994 Top 10 Finisher Caroline Subijano, was named as the very first Miss Charm Philippines and will represent the country in the inaugural edition of Miss Charm International in Vietnam next month.
Cebu-based model Daina Nelson partnered with De Sequera as Female Winner of GLobal Asian Model Philippines 2019.
Los Angeles Fil-Am import Daumier Corilla grabbed the Manhunt Philippines honor and will be host delegate in Manhunt International that will be held in Manila come February, 2020.
Meanwhile, Davao bet Mico Teng was proclaimed Mister Global Philippines and will be Thailand-bound for Mister Global 2020. Finally, Karen Laurrie Mendoza was chosen as representative of the country in next year’s Supermodel International which will also take place in the Land of Smiles.
In the same event, the key individuals behind Miss Universe Philippines Organization were formally presented as a prelude to next month’s Press Conference. But more about this on a separate blog.
Congratulations to all the winners!
