​​Tonight, my friend-cum-mentee Jason Bruce Martin will be among the thirty exceptionally hot and indisputably bright Adonises competing neck and neck at the Gentlemen of the Philippines 2016 Finals at the Trinity University of Asia Theater in Quezon City. 

Seven gentlemen extraordinaire will walk away as the cream of the crop, each wearing a crown and a sash with the title: Mister Universal Ambassador, Mister Model International, Mister Tourism International, Mister Worldwide, Best Global Model, Mister Tourism World, Mister Teen International. 

Updates from Manila have it that this six-foot-tall thunder from down under and Men&Muses/AD Models Philippines Homme et Femme protege representing the Filipino Community of the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, is one of the top contenders, what with the two special awards he’s reaped already prior to tonight’s main event: Mister HeA Watch 2016 and Mister Online Travel Express 2016. 

Because the Gentlemen of the Philippines pageant zeroes in not just on the looks but the totality of its men, this handsome John Lloyd Cruz dead ringer named Jason Martin says, “True beauty is contained within the individual. What matters most is your character and the respect you have for not only yourself but others too.”
