Mister Global – Pedro Gicca, Brazil

Mister Grand International – Michael Angelo Skyllas, Australia
Mister International – Paul Iskandar, Lebanon (the 2016 pageant was moved due to the demise of the King of Thailand where the pageant was supposed to be held. Hence, Paul is considered here as the 2017 titleholder as well)

Manhunt International started in 1993 as a modeling competition and is considered the oldest male competition of its kind. It attracted its largest participants in 2006 and 2012 with 53 countries joining. The Philippines won the title for the first time in 2012, with June Macasaet winning in Thailand. Despite having been in absentia from 2013-2015, it still is one of the biggest international male competitions. This year Thailand will once again host the competition on November this year.
Who do you think will be the next Philippine rep to Manhunt International?
