Neil with a young fan
Mister International 2014 Neil Perez is having the time of his life in Prague, Czech Republic right now. This is his first trip to Europe and in one of its most beautiful cities yet.
Neil is a special guest of the organizers of Mister International Czech Republic. He will help award the 2015 winner alongside Tomáš Dumbrovský – reigning titleholder – who became his good friend and 2nd Runner-Up in Ansan, Korea during the competition last February.
Neil will have his hands full with a busy schedule which will also include a courtesy call with the country’s Prime Minister, Bohuslav Sobotka.
Enjoy your working vacation in Prague, Neil! 🙂

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
