Finally, how does GB rate the candidates on group 3, from Philippines to Wales??

PHILIPPINES

Grand Slam Ranking: 9th

GB Rating: Favorite!

After placing 2nd in Mr World´s last edition, the Philippines sent an even stronger candidate this time. If he wins, the Philippines will have the reigning Miss and Mr World, something that never happened before with any other nation.

POLAND

Best Placement: never placed
Mr World Ranking: 51st
Grand Slam Ranking: 56th
Mr Poland@ MrWorld.tv
GB Rating: Long shot

Poland has never had a semi-finalist in Mr World history, elegant Michal will try to break the odds and become the first.

PUERTO RICO

Winners: 0
Placements: 3
Best Placement: 2nd (1998)
Mr World Ranking: 10th
Grand Slam Ranking: 18th
Mr Puerto Rico@ MrWorld.tv
GB Rating: Strong delegate!

Here is another candidate to watch out for, Puerto Rico! He got the looks and would love to win a first title for his island (Puerto Rico has reached the top 3 twice, but hasn´t won it yet).

ROMANIA

Grand Slam Ranking: 92nd

GB Rating: Dark horse

In 2010 Romania had perhaps the most good looking guy competing in Mr World. However, he was “left in the ice” in a year filled with surprises. Can Bogdan go against all odds and make justice for his country now?

RUSSIA

Best Placement: never placed
Mr World Ranking: 51st
Grand Slam Ranking: 92nd
Mr Russia@ MrWorld.tv
GB Rating: possible surprise

OK, this is shocking: Russia, the country many people believe has the most beautiful people on Earth, has never had a single semi-finalist in Mr World or in any other Grand Slam contest. Miles is actually quite good, even if not a favorite. It would be nice to see Russia finally breaking through.

SOUTH AFRICA

Winners: 0
Placements: 1
Best Placement: semi-finalist (2007)
Mr World Ranking: 31st
Grand Slam Ranking: 21st
Mr South Africa@ MrWorld.tv
GB Rating: remote possibility
bon3

Perhaps the best bet from Africa, we wonder if it´s gonna be enough for South Africa to place.

SPAIN

Winners: 1
Placements: 2
Best Placement: winner (2007)
Mr World Ranking: 4th
Grand Slam Ranking: 12th
Mr Spain@ MrWorld.tv
GB Rating: Possible top 10
bon3

Spain has already conquered the Mr World title back in 2007, with the great Juan Garcia. This country always sends competitive guys, and Jose Ignacio is no exception. If he lands in the Top 10, don´t be surprised.

SRI LANKA

Winners: 0
Placements: 0
Best Placement: never placed
Mr World Ranking: 51st
Grand Slam Ranking: 81st
Mr Sri Lanka@ MrWorld.tv
GB Rating: possible pleasant surprise
bon3

A placement for Sri Lanka never looked so promising in Mr World. Angelo remains a long shot, but if Sri Lanka places, it will be completely well deserved (and refreshing). Great candidate!

SWAZILAND

Bonelelwe has certainly added some fun moments and great smiles to this year´s contest.

SWITZERLAND

It´s nice to see Switzerland back in both Mr and Miss World, even if not yet at the competitive level it used to be.

TURKEY

Placements: 1
Best Placement: 3rd (1996)
Mr World Ranking: 18th
Grand Slam Ranking: 8th
Mr Turkey@ MrWorld.tv
GB Rating: remote possibility
bon3

Turkey has tradition in male pageants, so Efekan could pull a surprise, although he is clearly more of a model than a Mister.

UKRAINE

Placements: 1
Best Placement: semi-finalist (2010)
Mr World Ranking: 31st
Grand Slam Ranking: 75th
Mr Ukraine@ MrWorld.tv

Ukraine has one semi-finalist in Mr World history. Bogdan will try hard to become the second.

VENEZUELA

Placements: 4
Best Placement: winner (1998)
Mr World Ranking: 5th

Mr Venezuela@ MrWorld.tv

We expected much more from Venezuela, but this is a sash that deserves respect, so who knows?

WALES

With a beautiful face, a nice personality, and being British, Mr Wales could pull a surprise.

  1. Jupiter Street says:

    Mister World – Moldova
    1st RU – Mexico
    2nd RU – Denmark

    Fearless forecast =)

  2. I hope Philippines. Ever since he guested on Kris Aquino morning show, he has quickly became a national celebrity. He’s also an endorser of a very popular local brand of clothing.

    • national celebrity my foot! he’s still an unknown in the philippines.

  3. Sorry, but Poland is just a dark horse in this competition and Puerto Rico is a very long shot.

  4. John Spainhower will get the crown

    • did he get it? :P lol
