The Gentlemen of the Philippines are Coming!

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.

Hannah’s Beach Resort & Male Competitions

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…

JayJay Olano for Gentlemen of the Philippines 2017

Filipino-Italians have done quite well in Gentlemen of the Philippines with Andrea Biondo winning the top title last year. This year Mister Bachelor Philippines-Italy 2017 is sending JayJay Olano to compete in the upcoming finals on September 9th.

JayJay who is born and raised in Milan, Italy is a 20 year old with a towering 6’3″ in height and is a Computer Technology student. He is speak fluently Italian and Tagalog and he speaks also in English. He spend most of his spare time to the gym and reading books apart from playing basketball and ride his bike.*
With a height made for modeling, I am almost quite sure that he would be a great rep for the Mister Model International competition to be held in Miami this year. All he needs to do is to develop a little more musculature and he would be good to go. I am also liking his facial hair as it adds more character to his face, hopefully he keeps it for the competition.

We cannot wait for more of the GotPh2017 guys to be revealed. It surely is shaping up to be a competition for the best that the global Filipino has to offer…
