What is Mr World?
In a sentence, Mr World is “The Search for the World’s Most Desirable Man.”
Unlike conventional Male "Beauty Pageants", Mr World is a 2-3 week competition designed to test the candidates in a variety of ways through a series of challenge events, interviews and a final stage show. These challenges test every aspect deemed necessary to be "The World's Most Desirable Man." A global event, each candidate represents a single nation, with no two contestants representing the same territory.
The whole competition is filmed, with a live show broadcast followed by an 90 minute television edit.
FIVE challenge events take place: Fashion & Style, the Extreme Challenge, the Multi-Media Award, the Sports Challenge & the Talent Competition. Each one of these Challenges has a winner, who takes his place in the Final TOP TEN of the competition. There are also collective points earned through the team based elements of the challenges, with the contestants split into four teams throughout the event.
FIVE places remain for the other contestants, whose performances over the challenges, their behaviour during the competition as well as their interviews with the judges will determine who takes their place in the TOP TEN.
The Winner is then selected by the panel of judges who weigh up the performances of each candidate before hearing from them on stage as to why they want to win Mr World, and what it would mean to them.
To Win Mr World you must be a well rounded individual with good looks, physical strength, charisma, charm, and a strong personality. We are looking for the full package, desirable in every sense.
