Posted by : Pinoy Screen and Stage Monday, July 25, 2016
It was a night to remember. Mister United Continents 2016, a male beauty pageant organized by Blue Circles Events and Managements, was held at Tanghalang Pasigueño last July 22. The theater has never looked more spacious with the overwhelming number of attendees. The event also had the backing of BG Productions headed by Ms. Baby Go as one of the major sponsors. Three of the judges aside from the “queen of indie films” came from the said production outfit, namely: Romeo Lindain, Neal “Buboy” Tan, and Dennis Evangelista. Another major sponsor is the hit noontime show of ABS-CBN, Showtime.
The parade of the 17 finalists from around the globe kicked off the competition. The first batch of special awards like Mr. Friendship, Mr. Health and Wellness Spa, Best in Advocacy Presentation, Mr. Online Presentation, and Best in National Costume, the latter having been won by Le Ngo Bao Viet of Vietnam.
A video of their activities at Alaminos, Pangasinan was shown including a courtesy call to city mayor Arthur F. Celeste as well as a zipline adventure at Governor’s island. Quezon Island, another one of Pangasinan’s Hundred Islands, became the venue for the contestants’ kayak race and banana boat ride.
After a very hip dance production number of all the guys involved, the second batch of special awards were handed out. These included Mr. Sundance, Mr. Fashion Exchange / Best in Sports Challenge, Mr. Pierre Marcel, Mr. Uncle Cheffy, Darling of the Press, Mr. Resort Wear, Mr. Hundred Islands, and Best in Swimwear. Grand slam winner for this segment was Mark Redfearn of United Kingdom, who bagged all the three awards not mentioned: Mr. Fraganza, Mr. Principal Beauty, and Mr. Eurotel.
Bulilit Diva Felicity gave an intermission number prior to the handing out of the final batch of special awards which were Best in Talent, Mr. Photogenic, Best in Li-Ning Sportswear, and Best in Resort Wear. After that, the Top 13 contenders were announced, then another child performer, Noah Anderson, showcased his singing prowess. The “Chinito Heartthrob” of The Voice Kids gave his rendition of “Just Give me a Reason” which reverberated through the entire theater.
The top 7 contenders were then selected and each was given a corresponding position after they sashayed wearing barongs. The new Master’s Division which aim to include middle-aged men (31-42 years old) gave victory to Vietnam’s Nguyen Hoang Tuan, who was named the Master United Continents 2016. His prize was $5,000 in cash among others. Mohit Singh, Mr. India, is a yuppie electrical engineer who took home the coveted title of Mister United Continents 2016.
The Philippine representatives Joseph Cruz Franco (QC) and Joser de Leon Sinfuego (29) both made it to the Top 13 at least. This is the 2nd year of the pageant. A source mentioned that allegedly, one of the sponsors, Ms. Baby Go, plans to organize a beauty pageant of her own. This will be an exciting new venture for BG productions if this pushes through.
