Now let’s talk about one of my favorite National Male Pageants in the country, THE MISTER PHILIPPINES. The 6th year old Kawit, Cavite based Pageant, has proclaimed its new titleholders for 2015; MIKE GERARD MENDOZA (22) from Sta. Maria, Bulacan was hailed as the new Mister Philippines 2015 in a turnover ceremony held in late February, he was officially sashed by the outgoing winner Mark Del Rosario. On the same event Gio Cabanlit was also awarded the Mister Philippines Tourism title.
(MISTER PHILIPPINES, the brainchild of Mister Philippines Inc. is not to be confused with the 2 year old version “MISTERS of the PHILIPPINES” spearheaded by P.E.P.) the pageant is in a legal battle against the latter over the Exclusive use of the title. Well this can get really stressful for both parties, let’s just wait for further development but as for me? I support both entities.
Anyway back to the winner, Mike Gerard and Gio Cabanlit were both Top 12 semi-finalists at last year’s Pageant held at the Resorts World’s Newport Performing Arts Theater.
Mike Gerard will now prepare to compete in the Dominican Republic sometime in June for the Men Universe Model 2015 Pageant.Will he be the first Filipino to place in this pageant? With his charm and that winsome smile? His Chances are definitely high!
