Media Invite for the Launch
Come February 27, Gentlemen of the Philippines
will have its Media Launch at 2Go Travel’s “The Hub @ Kilometer 0” right in the heart of Rizal Park in Manila. The male pageant will have all the seven (7) Gentlemen
– Mister Model International Philippines 2015 Arcel Yambing, Mister Tourism International Philippines 2015 Willan Pagayon, Mister Worldwide Philippines 2015 Jolo Dayrit, Mister Tourism International Philippines 2014 Judah Cohen, Mister Bachelor Philippines Italy 2015 Kevin Fichera plus the Honorary Reniel Villareal & Rick Kristoffer Palencia

At the same time, Gentlemen Charities Incorporated (GCI) will have special guests flying in all the way from Jakarta, Indonesia. They are the Founder of Indonesian Male Pageants (IMP) Edin Muhammad and his titleholders – Mister Universal Ambassador 2015 Christian Daniel Ortiz of Puerto Rico, Mister Indonesia 2015 Damian Ronny and Mister Teen Indonesia 2015 Tandi Islami.
The event is going to be memorable for both Gentlemen Charities Incorporated and Indonesian Male Pageants Association because it signals the strong friendship between the two, forged by the close ties of both its founders – Precious Anne Medina and Edin Muhammad. And it will definitely grow even stronger after the said launch.

Mister Tourism World could be the next biggest event in international male pageantry
This coming Saturday, January 30, a new international male pageant will officially be born in Bali, Indonesia where the Grand Launching and Press Conference will happen at the Harris Ballroom on Sunset Road Kuta. This is Mister Tourism World 2016
, and it aims to set the bar high in the staging of a competition among “charmingly cultured” and handsome men from different countries.

The island of Bali will also host the inaugural edition and grand finals from November 17-26, 2016, with Bhumiku Convention Center as the venue for the election of the winner. This early, the response from national directors from different countries is very encouraging. I wouldn’t be surprised if the organizers will exceed the initially-anticipated number of confirmed delegates.
Watch a video from the Bali Tourism Board now.

Misters 2015 2nd Runner-Up Kevin Fichera is literally going places nowadays. After spending a month in the Philippines for the male pageant, he immediately packed his bags and flew to Stockholm, Sweden with his manager Chase Dasalla upon the invitation of the Adicon Charity Organization to be one of the special guests of their Charity Masquerade Gala held at Clarion Hotel.
The 20 year-old Filipino-Italian could not believe his good fortune at being able to visit the Swedish capital soon after collecting fond memories of the Philippines. There, he was met by male pageant franchise holder Precious Anne Medina for the black-and-tie event where he actually met local actor John Arcilla who is currently making waves in the Oscar-bound movie ‘Heneral Luna’, as well as some of the high society personalities in the organization.
More trips and cities to conquer for dear Kevin. Next stop, Hamburg, Germany come October 17!
La vita e bella, Signore Fichera! 😀

I regretfully missed the Press Launch of Misters 2015: The Misters of Pilipinas Search yesterday afternoon at K-Pub in The Fort. I had to prioritize my brother’s wedding at St. John Bosco Parish and reception at Acacia Hotel Manila. And since I already informed the PEPPs people ahead of time, I just promised to blog about the special event.
The launch also coincided with the Official Send-Off of Mister Tourism International Philippines 2014 Judah Cohen for Mister Tourism International 2015 which will be hosted in Panama City come August. His fellow title holders – Mister International 2014/15 Neil Perez, Mister Global Philippines 2014 Joseph Doruelo, 1st Runner-Up Nicko Cruz – were around to give him words of encouragement for the upcoming competition. Mister International 2013 Jose Anmer Paredes was also present to add his message for Judah.
“I am a bit disappointed about the delay,but under no circumstances have I been discouraged. I take the extra time to prepare as a blessing.” said Judah

Kevin will come to Manila for Misters2015
A 20 year-old student at the Facoltá Economia of Roma Tre University was elected Mr. Bachelor Philippines Italy 2015 at the Teatro Italia in Rome yesterday afternoon. Kevin John Fichera
will now be the official representative of the Filipino Community of Italy in the upcoming Misters2015 / Mister Filipinas Search that will culminate in the national finals on September 13.
Going into the competition, Kevin was already one of the heavy favorites based on online popularity (he is actually my #1 choice to top it all). And in the midst of the actual event, he scooped two important special awards – Best in Swimwear and Best in Formal Wear – that helped seal his victory. He was also named Mr. Globe (Telecoms) and one of the Top 5 for Mr. Megaworld.
Kevin succeeded Pierre Luigi Reyes who was the first winner of the male pageant last year. On hand to award him was Madam Precious Anne Medina, the Head of Mister Filipinas Search.
