GB opinion: Results were fair as square, with the 4 big favorites placing 1st to 4th. The winner completely deserves the title. Singapore was a pleasant surprise and deserved his 5th position. This contest has been improving year after year, showing a decent production and good quality webcast on You Tube. What it still needs to improve: overall level of candidates, with the Mister Global Org. working with stronger national organizations in most countries; representatives of pageant powerhouses such as Venezuela, Australia, Mexico, and representatives from the African continent and non-Hyspanic Caribbean nations. Nevertheless, it is today, without a doubt, one of the top 4 male pageants in the world, behind Mr World and Mr International, and right next to Manhunt International (which we all hope will return someday…). Good job!
