Moreno hottie Ricardo De Jesus, 25 from Candaba, Pampanga, is proud of his humble beginnings. From working as a construction worker to being a delivery man, he had to sacrifice just to make ends meet, this led him to dream big as he grew older.

He enjoys his work so much because he gets to travel a lot by spearheading job fairs across the country.

Will the winner be among these guys?

The new Mister Philippines 2014 has been proclaimed last Saturday (Jan.18) in a surprising gala conclusion held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila. Mark Del Rosario pulled off an upset and bagged the top plum Beating heavy favorites from Australia, General Santos, Mountain Province and Baguio city. The 29 year old Caviteno went ahead of his game by giving a solid impression in the interview portion, his answer to the question asked by host Wilma Doesnt as to what his advantage over the other candidates,he said his ability to be a good spokesperson for the organization and for the country, was the night’s biggest turning point for the judges that cemented the deal!

Some pageant fans in attendance were in disbelief after the announcement of the results, plus the overwhelming reactions by the Netizens spread like wildfire online shortly after the crowning. Meanwhile, unfazed by the criticisms hurled at him (more on that later), the new Mister Philippines 2014 is enjoying his victory and will now get ready to prepare for his assignment as he represents the country at Men Universe Model 2014 in the Dominican Republic!
