The new MISTER INTERNATIONAL 2013 is Jose Anmer Paredes from Venezuela!

Mister Venezuela

Surprise: Venezuela’s Jose Anmer Paredes beat the odds and was elected Mister International 2013in Jakarta, Indonesia, on November 21st. Most websites covering the event did not place the Venezuelan candidate even among the Top 16 possible semi-finalists, (Even yours truly just ranked him at #14 on my final list!) but organizers explained that “his amazing figure, intelligence and good answers” put him right on the top.

The Top 6 Finalists from L-R: MEXICO, INDONESIA, VENEZUELA, BRAZIL, PHILIPPINES and CZECH REPUBLIC

Hometown boy Albern Sultan, from Indonesia, placed 2nd, followed by Brazil’s Jhonatan Marko in 3rd, Mexico’s Hans Briseno in 4th, Philippines’ Gil Wagas in 5th, and Czech Republic’s Antonin Beranek in 6th place, respectively.

Mister Czech Republic was a hot favorite among pageant followers (including this website) but he literally froze when giving his final answers.

Countries which made the top 10 were Slovakia, China, Colombia and Singapore.

Top 15 quarter-finalists came from Costa Rica, Turkey, Slovenia, Canada, Italy, and Chile.

Overall results had some more surprises, as hot favorites from Spain, Peru (Mr. World semi-finalist), Belgium (Mr. World semi-finalist), Puerto Rico (Manhunt Int’l’s 2nd runner-up), and Lebanon, were “left in the ice”.

The new Mister International won around USD 7000 cash among several other prizes. The event is produced by Alan Sim, from Singapore.

My QUALMS and QUIBBLES:

I share the same sentiments of most pageant fans but this makes me realize to never bet against a Venezuelan, weather it be in female beauty pageants or for men! I may have placed Mister Venezuela at #14 but in all fairness to him he looked buffed and has a great personality! This makes the Venezuelan genes more inimitable! BRAVO! of the actual Top 6, Czech Republic and Indonesia were the most handsome but hey who am I to complain, the judges saw what I didn’t see so it’s totally fine!

But It’s a total shock to know that pageant veterans BELGIUM, PERU and PUERTO RICO were left out in the cold. I think I smell fishy on this part, they were the most prepared and were miles ahead as far as looks are concerned, instead we saw CHINA, COSTA RICA and COLOMBIA advanced in the semi-finals? it’s a big head scratcher!!

Another big favorite Michal Gazdosech also wonders why?

And where was the God Hammoud Ali? I think I didn’t hear anything from him nor see a glimpse of his presence through out the competition, instead he was dancing with the stars!

Overall I’m pretty ok with the results, 12 of my bets made the actual Top 16 and 3 of my Top 6 advanced to the final round! Congratulations to everyone!!!
