The Man of the World to be revealed tonight

TONIGHT and on Sunday night, the very first Man of the World and Miss Tourism Philippines will be crowned and will reign as the newest ambassadors of education and beauty tourism, respectively.

Twenty-eight young men from around the world have gathered in Manila for Man of the World, which is being staged by Prime Events Productions Philippines Foundation, Inc. headed by Carlo Morris Galang, the same outfit that produces the annual Misters of Filipinas tilt.

We picked seven who stood out during their media presentation at ICON Hotel EDSA, Quezon City last week, and are most-likely to make it to tonight’s finals at One Esplanade, MOA Complex, Pasay City.

They are: model Mostafa Galal Mohammed Elezali of Egypt, gym instructor Marc Tarres of Spain, model Abou Sahyoun Wassim of Palestine, police inspector Christopher Dulagan of the Philippines, actor James Carne of Australia, model Tatsuya Furuyama of Japan and model Victor Suiu of Moldova. 


On Sunday, the twenty-eight candidates of Miss Tourism Philippines 2017 will battle it out for the five titles at stake – Miss Tourism Philippines-Universe, Miss Tourism Philippines-World, Miss Tourism-Luzon, Miss Tourism-Visayas and Miss Tourism-Mindanao – at the grand coronation night to be held at Chardonnay by Astoria in Pasig.

Preliminary events and subsidiary competitions were held at Chateau Royale Resort & Spa in Nasugbu, Batangas; Ichthus Beach Resort in Magsingal, Ilocos Sur and official shoots at Jose Panganiban, Camarines Norte and Zambales.

During the media presentation held at Astoria Plaza Hotel the other Wednesday, we picked the delegates from Palawan; San Fernando, La Union; San Fernando, Pampanga; Pasig City; and Umingan, Pangasinan as the most likely to advance to Sunday’s finals. 

Miss Tourism Philippines Inc. president Amelia Sunio-Abarquez gave the Darling of the Press title to Sharlan Santillan of Palawan and the Miss Congeniality awarx to Sofia Grace Galve of Umingan, Pangasinan.

Miss Tourism Philippines-World will vie for Miss Tourism World in Melaka, Malaysia while Miss Tourism Philippines-Universe will compete for Miss Tourism Universe in Beirut, Lebanon later this year.
