CQ Global Quest Inc., the official Philippine licensee of Mr. World Philippines, recently teamed up with Ayala Malls in conjunction with its search for this year’s official candidate for the 2014 Mr. World pageant, to be held in Torbay, London on June 15 this year.
The partnership aims to strengthen the country’s bid in the biennial competition owned and managed by the Miss World Organization, the same governing body behind the Miss World Pageant.
In 2012, world-class Filipino athlete and model Andrew Wolff did the country proud when he won 1st Runner-Up in the 2012 Mr. World pageant held in Kent, England. Colombia’s Francisco Escobar won the Mr. World title that year.
“The best part of winning is bringing honor and prestige to our country,” exclaims the 28-year old athlete. “We’ve done that with the Volcanoes, and it’s great to have done it again for a worthy cause. As the Mr. World organizers say, it’s all about ‘beauty with a purpose.’ It’s not just about beauty as such, or having the best abs or the prettiest face.”
