Today is already July 8, Friday. Later this afternoon, Mr World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani will board his Qatar Airways flight that will bring him to London (via Doha) and whisked straight to Southport for the start of the competition for Mr World 2016, the Search for the World’s Most Desirable Man.
Yesterday afternoon, 26 year-old Sam was given his Official Send-off by ALV Events International of Arnold Vegafria at the Full Belly Craft Kitchen on Sgt Esguerra, QC. Selected members of the media were invited and our bet was game in answering all the questions fielded in, as well as the interview of several TV networks.
“I feel like I’m in a good place now, and I’m ready to enjoy this exciting journey. The real prize and honor is representing the country,” Sam declares
The 6’2″ Filipino-Iranian, whose Filipina mother (surnamed Vargas) comes from the Negros Island Region, is confident of himself and all the preparations he has made for the big mission up ahead. He has all bases covered – from multi-media to fitness regimen to sports training to fashion challenge all the way to the military-type of trials and the dreaded Q&A. Finals night will be on July 19.
“…I think I am intelligent enough to handle questions in the competition.” added Sam

As parting words, Sam was recorded saying the following:
This is an old file photo taken last May 29, 2014 when John Spainhour and Sam Ajdani were announced as Mr World Philippines of two separate years
Nearly two years ago today, or May 29, 2014 to be exact, an event was held inside Glorietta 6 in Makati where Mr World Philippines 2014 was to be selected in front of invited members of the Press. The interesting part was that only two (2) candidates were present to compete for the title – John Spainhour and Sam Ajdani. Both handsome guys are popular choices for the honor. But in the end, the former was formally announced by Ms. Cory Quirino as our representative to Mr. World 2014
which will start in the UK just 24 hours or so after.
Sam Ajdani did not go home empty-handed because he was also named Mr. World Philippines but for 2015 – which was last year and which did not materialize. Everyone was disappointed that his preparations went to waste.
Mr. World 2016 will be held in Southport, UK on July 19
But with Mr. World 2016
finally pushing through in Southport, UK this coming July 19, things are looking up for Sam Ajdani who is still the one recognized as our bet in this – the Search for the World’s Most Desirable Man
Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani
Is Sam ready for the big fight? I sure hope he is. Despite the long wait, the representation is still #ForThePhilippines.
