Mister Dominican Republic, Erick Jiménez Sabater, is the new Mister Universe Model 2012. He edged out other 26 hunks who competed for the title in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Mister Slovenia, Miha Dragos, was the 1st runner-up, followed by Mister Argentina, Daniel Cajiao (2nd runner-up and Mr Internet), Mister Spain, Nicolás Ferreiro (3rd runner-up and Mister Elegance), Mister Venezuela, Julio César Torres (4th runner-up and Mr Photogenic), and Mister Chile, Alberto Byers (5th runner-up).
The Top 12 semi-finalists were: Misters Luxembourg, Serbia, Nicaragua, Peru, Italy and U.S. Virgin Islands (also the winner of the Best National Costume award).
Although locals celebrated the victory of their own Erick Jiménez, most other candidates walked away in protest and did not greet the winner.
