48 candidates competed for the title.
About the contest: After 10 days of great activities in Bali, the candidates embarked on a 10-hour bus journey to Surubaya, where the final event took place. The show started over an hour late and lasted for nearly four hours. Musical performances were far from being outstanding and a bunch of children received sashes on stage. There were no original elements to it, and as most male pageants, it attempted to copy the Miss Universe formula.
The level of candidates was high, results seemed fair, but the final show needs a lot of improvement for it to reach the level of other contests of this nature, like Mr World, Mister International, Manhunt International and even Mister Global, who came a long way in just three years.
Nonetheless, it has improved from last year´s edition and has lots of potential to grow.
We wish the winner the best of luck during his year of reign!
