The competition for Mister Universe 2017 (Men Universe) in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is heating up very nicely with the almost forty candidates jockeying up for front-runner positions im the international male competition. And mind you, our entry – Mister Philippines Denver Hernandez – is not lagging behind in terms of popularity and appeal both online and among the locals & organizers in the host city. In fact, many are already putting him on the list of strong favorites for the title which will have its finals later this week. Credit goes to his truly masculine looks and smoldering hot moves during photoshoots. He is the type who will significantly increase his likeability the longer you spend time talking with and knowing him better. I should know. He is one of the Mister Philippines 2017 candidates who remained very consistent all throughout the national search. And by now, he has learned how to churn up the needed points to stand out amidst the presence of taller and bulkier caucasians in the roster.
Will Denver do us proud and win the title? We’ll see!
