The 9th Mister International candidates at Ansan-Wa Stadium
Who will be Jose Anmer’s successor?
Thirty. There are now thirty (30) guys vying for the 9th Mister International title tomorrow night. With the very late arrival of Mister Slovenia Mitja Nadizar, he circles out the number to thirty.
So allow me to share my Top Ten choices (in the photo grid below) with Mister Poland Rafal Maslak and Mister India Prameet Singh Wahi on top. I am not making any conclusive statement that one of them will definitely win, but they should be up there after the victors are officially announced.
I am feeling Mister Philippines Neil Perez. For a good placement, that is. While I want him to take it all the way, my impression is that he somehow allowed the other strong candidates to take the shine from his favor. Aside from my Top 2, the likes of Brazil, Czech Republic and even Guam may have edged him out one way or the other. Be that as it may, I still see him getting a Top 5 spot.
In the end, I really want to see Rafal or Prameet becoming the successor of Jose Anmer Paredes. But I wouldn’t discount the possibility of a hometown win for Youngho Park as well. 😉
My Top 10 picks for the 9th Mister International with Poland and India leading the pack.
My Top 5 (in order of preference) 1) Rafal Maslak of Poland, 2) Prameet Singh Wahi of India, 3) Neil Perez of the Philippines, 4) Matheus Martins of Brazil and 5) Tomas Dumbrovsky of Czech Republic
Three of the requested favorites in the 9th Mister International - Poland's Rafal Maslak, India's Prameet Singh Wahi and Brazil's Matheus Martins
I caved in to the request for Misters Poland Rafal Maslak, India Prameet Singh Wahi and Brazil Matheus Martins. I also like the trio.
But did you know that Rafal is a real-life firefighter (reason why he bonds well with our Neil Perez), Prameet is an aspiring Bollywood actor who did underwear ads for Calvin Klein and Matheus is a fashion/print model/soccer fanatic who dotes on & loves his nieces and nephews a lot? You don’t? Those are the reasons I love them even more.

Well, just watch their ambush interviews with Mister Colombia David Angel below. 😉
The 9th Mister International Pageant will officially start in Seoul tomorrow with the arrival of the candidates
Mister International Philippines Neil Perez will be facing tough opponents in Seoul
At around 7:00 tomorrow morning, Mister International Philippines 2014 Neil Perez will arrive in Seoul with hopes of becoming the 9th Mister International on February 12. The competition won’t be easy because the delegates from other countries are just as fierce and hungry for the win.
I will be regularly coordinating with his handler (Aski Pascual) in the Korean capital for all the fresh updates about Neil’s quest for the title, including his participation in the different pre-pageant activities.
This early, I can already see the host delegate Youngho Park becoming a heavy favorite, along with Matheus Martins of Brazil, David Roca Martinez of Spain, Rafal Maslak of Poland and Arian Alexis Lopez Abrego of Panama. But I’m sure our bet won’t allow them to take charge of the battle just yet. He is armed and ready to give it a good fight.
Below are the forty-two (42) handsome men in the way of our Neil Perez to the 9th Mister International victory.
