It is that time of the year once again as the search for gentlemen who are more than just good looks is at hand.
A group of 30 gentlemen of the Philippines from different regions of the country and Filipino Communities Overseas will take center-stage for this years competition. 20 gents were already selected at earlier castings in Manila which drew eligible young men as far as the Ilocos region down to the south. Four Filipino halfies from overseas have been named to join the competition as well. Just a few more and Batch GotPH2017 will be complete. These gents will be competing for the chance to compete at the following international male competitions: Mister Universal Ambassador, Mister Tourism World and Mister Model International.
Coronation Night will be on September 9, 2017 at Grand Ballroom, Hotel Rembrandt, Timog Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City.
Earlier this year, I have blogged about Hannah Beach Resort and Convention Center becoming a destination for the biggest pageants in the Philippines. Well, the premier pageant destination in the Philippines truly is living up to that name.
They have recently extended their support for national and international male pageants. Recently Mister Indonesia welcome Hannahs Beach Resort and Convention Center, as one of the official sponsors of the biggest male pageant in Indonesia. Mister Indonesia is the owner of the Mister Universal Ambassador and is also reportedly getting the local franchise for Mister Supranational and Mister World.
Also on the pipeline is the Gentlemen of the Philippines 2017 competition! The GotPh2017 is scheduled to be held on September 9th. It is expected that the field of candidates this year will be narrowed down to only 25-30 gents competing for the confirmed titles at stake.
Not to mention that Hannah’s was also the venue for the recent Mutya ng Pilipinas swimwear mini-competition. With a heavy participation of the resort in pageants, we can see what this Pagudpud resort has to offer. So the next time you plan your vacay, put Hannah’s Beach Resort in mind as you may just glance the next national and international titleholders frolicking at their beaches…
