Rome Phanuphong as the Asian Christian Gray

Mister Supranational Thailand 2016 Rome Phanuphong Wanthamat posed for Harder Magazine Issue 07 in a steamy S&M/ Bondage themed shoot. The Thai hunk never shied away from steamy and racy shoots as is shown in various stages of dress (or total lack of)… Last warning before the jump!

My Mister World Philippines 2018 Picks

Height is might, that is specially true in male pageants. On average, international winners tend to be at around 6’0″-6’1″ in height. So it is no surprise that the tallest guys are the ones on top of my list.

Before we get to our top 2 pick, here are three guys completing our top 5 for Mister World Philippines 2018. I might add that any of these three hunks would be a great rep in Mister Eco International.
* JB Saliba – he is all man and that is his best physical asset. This 5’10” hunk is competing against ‘boys’ and that is why he is my wildcard pick for the Mister World Philippines title.
* Robin Hanrath – standing at 5’10” and blessed with a boyish charm, this guy is definitely the best face in the competition. He is definitely the runaway winner for the Mister Photogenic award if there is such an award. He is my personal fave for the Mister Eco-International.
* Ricardo de Jesus – I remember this hunk from the Mister United Continents pageant in 2015. He stands  5’11” and his advantage is his very Filipino features. I have him as my Mister Supranational Philippines alternate.

Now on to my top two. Since both Mister Supranational and Mister World are two of the biggest names in male pageants, it would be fitting to send the two tallest candidates there. Either pageants would be great for the 6’4″ Marco Poli and the 6’3″ Ameen Sardouk. Personally I would prefer Ameen’s similar facial features with Andrew Wolff for Mister World. I know that Marco’s impressive height will be much appreciated in Mister Supranational. But I also think that Marco would be a good opening salvo in MW as he seems to have the polished looks that the pageant prefers. Eitherway, I would be fine who wins which as long as the two would end up with the top titles in the pageant.

Mister Tourism World 2018 to be Held in Rome!

Mister Tourism World 2017 Joshua Lennet went to Rome, Italy earlier this year in what seems to be a tour of the Eternal City. Little did we know that the trip also had something to do with the hosting of the 3rd annual competition in February of next year in Rome.

It was posted on the official Mister Tourism World Facebook page that the competition will indeed take place in Italy. One of the highlights of the contest will be World Tourism Fashion Festival. Below is the official announcement from the org…

Where the MISTER TOURISM WORLD 2018 finale will take place on February 3, 2019 (Sunday).
We can’t wait to welcome all the Charmingly Cultured gentlemen across the globe and experience a once in a lifetime journey. With the inaugural edition (2016) that was held in the Heritage City of Vigan in the Philippines, and the second edition (2017) in the City of Golden Pagodas in Yangon, Myanmar; the host city of Rome is the perfect place for the 3rd edition (2018) of Mister Tourism World.

Rome has the status of a global city. In 2016, Rome ranked as the 14th-most-visited city in the world, 3rd most visited in the European Union, and the most popular tourist attraction in Italy. It’s historic center is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are among the world’s most visited tourist destinations with both locations receiving millions of tourists a year, and the city hosted the 1960 Summer Olympics. Rome is the seat of several specialized agencies of the United Nations, such as the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

Sashes&Scripts Final Leaderboard for Mister Global 2018

The finals of the Mister Global 2018 is upon us and here are our picks for title!

Before we reveal our picks let’s mention first three gents that are honorable mentions: Dominican Republic, Egypt and Albania. In a very competitive batch, any of those three could spoil some of the guys on my top 15 list.
15. Venezuela,  Christian Nunes
14. Afghanistan, Hamid Noor
13. Spain, Fabian Perez
12. Mexico, Antonio Merchant
11. Hong Kong, Vincent Lau
Top 10 Finalist
10. Brazil, Junior Garcia
9. Switzerland, Betim Morina
8. Puerto Rico, Engel Garcia Colon
7. Guam, Adam Suharto
6. Thailand, Staporn Moollisan

4th runner up – Denmark, Marcus Joergensen
3rd runner up – Chile, Italo Robles
2nd runner up – Korea, Kang Doohyung
1st runner up – USA, Dario Duque
Wildcard/ Spoiler – South Africa, Dwayne Geldenhuis
Mister Global 2018 –  Poland, Jakub Kucner
I believe that my top three guys should be a shoo in for the title. Dario is my darkhorse in the contest that may be the spoiler for the finals. I have a hard time choosing between Dwayne and Jakub for the title. I am torn as to where should I position Dwayne hence I placed him as the possible wildcard spoiler in the competition. But he would be a great winner if he is chosen come finals. To be honest, I feel that Jakub would be a great follow up to Pedro Gicca of Brazil. I really find Jakub looking very charismatic aside from his body of charity work.

#MANicMondays: Paul Iskandar, Mister International 2016

Paul Iskandar from Lebanon was declared as the winner of Mister International 2016 at the finale held at the Asiatique The Riverfront in Bangkok, Thailand. The then 23 year old Lebanese hunk battled it out with 34 other contestants to claim the title. He succeeded Pedro Mendes from Switzerland.

Here is how he describes himself in an interview with StarCentral* magazine:
My name is Paul Iskandar, I was born in Paris, of Lebanese parents and I moved back to Lebanon when I was seven years old. I started playing Basketball when I was younger, and I ended up receiving a scholarship in high school and university. At the age of 17, I started taking on modeling jobs after being discovered on TV playing basketball by my mother agency in Lebanon. After that, I started working on my fitness career, and I got a BA in physical education and sports. I managed the best gyms in Lebanon, traveled a lot for photo shoots and work and ended up winning Mister Lebanon – I represented Lebanon in the 2016-17 Mister International competition, and I won.

After winning the competition, I became known on a bigger scale worldwide and I traveled around the world for work and attending events under the Mister International organization. I currently have a number of offers in the US, so I will be signing very soon after finishing my current contract in the Far East. I’ll later be based in Miami and NewYork.


#MANicMondays; Matheus Song, Mister Brasil 2017

Our latest #MANicMondays hunk is the Mister Brasil CNB 2017. Matheus Song is a 23-year-old model (he was born in October 1994) and student from Joinville, Santa Catarina. He represented Brazil in the Mister Supranational pageant which he placed as 2nd runner up to the eventual winner, Gabriel Correa of Venezuela.

Matheus also won most of the Top Model awards in his local competitions as well as in Mister Supranational. If you’re wondering what his ethnicity is, he can attribute his stunning good looks from his Korean father and German mother. The 6’0″ tall model is currently trying his hand at a modelling career in Asia and is currently working in Thailand. Check out more pics below.

Matheus has a black belt in Taekwondo, but he also plays soccer as one of his hobbies, as well as surfing. He now has a 1-year old daughter named Lara.

After the pageant, we were able to ask a couple of question from out rep, Keny Ong about the competition and here is what he had to say…
What is the most difficult thing you had to do for the competition?
The most difficult thing I had to do for the competition was to manage my time because I work in the bank, I manage my restaurants and I work on my thesis
What does the Mr National Universe Ambassador title mean to you?
When we say Ambassador, we mean the spokesperson aside from being the role model. The organization has entrusted me the responsibility of representing them, same with the MNU 2018. I am very thankful that still, I got one of the titles. I am still a winner.

Congratulations to all winners!
