Mr World 2019: Recap of a busy week


The Mr World contest has had a busy and successful week in the Philippines, and we will go over the main happenings in the pageant.

We start by informing that 72 countries have made it to this year´s edition, which, in the end, is not a world record. In 2010, in Korea, 74 nations competed. For unknown reasons, the representatives of Scotland, Wales, Bolivia, Moldova, Sweden, Vietnam, and others who had been confirmed, never showed up for undisclosed reasons.

Reigning Mr World Rohit Khandelwal has arrived in the Philippines for Mr World 2019 and met with the country’s most influential media to talk about his reign and view on this year’s contestants.

Not everything is hard work for the 72 competitors. Recently they visited the beautiful Manohari Agri Farm at Rosario in Batangas, where they planted trees and were in contact with nature.

There´s has been a press conference, when local journalists and bloggers had the chance to chat with the candidates and organizers.


The boys got a chance to go shopping and dining out, which can always be fun a relaxing.

In the beginning of the week, the 72 candidates took part in this year's Mr World Extreme Challenge. They were put through their paces in a test of strength, fitness and agility. The winner of this fast-track event has not been announced yet.

It´s good not only to see Mr World back, but back with style, in a country that provides attention and fun activities to the candidates. The Philippines has been a fantastic host country so far!

Stay tuned for more updates…
