The 13th edition of the Mister International pageant will take place in the Philippines later this month and the host delegate is all set to welcome his fellow contestants.
“I’m very excited to show the beauty of our country, our culture and our hospitality to all candidates,” Mister International Philippines 2018 Kevin Baloaloa said in a send-off press conference held February 5 at Hotel Benilde Maison De La Salle in Manila.
“I’m very confident and proud to carry the Philippine flag in this competition, with your support, blessings from God and of course with the best pageant fans in the world, I can’t ask for more,” said Baloaloa, who will be donning Filipino-made wardrobe with cultural significance during the competition. Michael Barassi will be creating his national costume, which is inspired by the Philippine mythology’s moon eating dragon Bakunawa. Bea Bianca will be providing his ready-to-wear clothes, while Olan Roque will make his competition formal wear.
