Together with the Mister Polski competition, the Mister Brasil CNB contest is the very best in national male competitions. It has proper preliminary rounds, excellent social media exposure and its contestants are highlighted in an exemplary way.
One young man, we have followed for months in the Mister Brasil CNB competition is Leonardo Nobre, who first won the local leg of the contest competed in his hometown of Natal. After securing the Mister Rio Grande do Norte title he was set to compete at the national level. This was Leonardo first foray into the world of modelling and male contests.
Leonardo prepared meticulously, a process he shared with the world in his social media account. You could see the earnestness and dedication with which he took on representing his home state.
In this whole process his charisma was clearly evident, he was being himself, not taking on any persona, being effortless and even somewhat shy.
We predicted Leonardo as the one to beat in the national competition and ultimately he was bested by only one other participant.
Leonardo will be representing Brazil at the Mister International competition in December of this year and for us he is a definite front runner in that contest.
In the lead up to the Mister Brasil CNB 2017 competition, we published on our Facebook Page our list of 10 young men to watch. These were the guys we would describe as having the charisma, being EFFORTLESS, to make it to the top of the competition. One of these was Leonardo Menegon, Mister Mato Grosso. Furthermore, we predicted Leonardo would be one of the Top 3 in the competition.
Leonardo made it to the Top 20 and was also voted Mister Friendship by his fellow contestant. Leonardo’s reaction to winning this title is a vivid illustration of why he is one of the best male contestants we have come across.
You could say that Leonardo is too down to earth to be in the world of modelling and contests. Notwithstanding, he fits in excellently.
You get the impression that he is just being himself, exploring life’s opportunities and being open to all sorts of new experiences. A regular guy living his life outside the box, without compromises.
We are disappointed that Leonardo will not be representing Brazil internationally and it would be great if he were to take another shot at the title of Mister Brasil CNB.
As we stated previously, what makes a male competitor great is his charisma. He needs to project approachability, to be kind of man that men want to emulate and women (and some men) want to be with.
Charisma is not something you can learn or practice, although you will see most male contestants try. Charisma has to be EFFORTLESS.
One young man who you can say is the epitome of charisma is Jack Eyers, Mister England 2017. Jack is ruggedly handsome, an avid sportsman and, as they say, he “cleans up nicely”. He is a catwalk and commercial model and never puts on airs. In all his pictures he just looks like you captured some of his daily activities. Jack is indeed EFFORTLESS.
Jack is also smashing barriers in the world of pageants and fashion, as the first amputee to win a national title. With Jack, that is the last thing you notice though.
Jack will represent England at Mister World 2018 and we already predict he will do very well at this competition.
A tasteful variation on the nude pump.
Another welcome deviation from the Bling Wars, is this creation by Pinoy designer Mark Bumgarner. It is smashing, as it does not contain any decoration. This allows the simplicity of the material to highlight the design, a modern interpretation of a timeless classic. As worn by newly crowned Miss World Philippines 2017, it could have been a masterclass in evening gown presentation. Sadly, she chose to wear this beautiful creation with the most inappropriate footwear, cheapening the overall look.
In this time when it seems that designers are trying to see who can put the most bling on a gown, this toned down version by Pinoy designer Mak Tumang really catches the eye and sets the one wearing it apart from the crowd.
