England Wins Mr. World 2019

MANILA, Philippines — Jack Heslewood of England was declared Mr. World 2019, beating 71 candidates for the title during the pageant finals held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Friday, August 23. Heslewood's victory marks the first time that England has won the contest.

Jack suceeded India's Rohit Khandelwal, who completed his reign of 3 years.

South Africa's Fezile Mkhize was 1st runner-up while Mexico's Brian Faugier was 2nd runner-up. The other finalists were Alejandro Martinez of the Dominican Republic and Carlos Franco of Brazil.

Completing the top 12 were the delegates from Austria, Ireland, Lebanon, Nepal, Northern Ireland, Philippines and Tonga.

The Continental King titles were distributed as follows:

Mr World Europe: Austria, Alberto Nodale
Mr World Africa: South Africa, Fezile Mkhize
Mr World Americas: Mexico, Brian Faugier
Mr World Caribbean: Dominican Republic, Alejandro Martinez
Mr World Asia Pacific: Philippines, JB Saliba

The show was hosted by Miss World 2013 Megan Young from the Philippines and Mikael Daez, a Filipino actor and television presenter.

Here's an interesting trivia about Heslewood: he competed in Mister England 2016 where he placed 1st runner-up to the original winner, Jack Eyers. But Eyers was forced to give up his title (for undisclosed reasons) and he was succeeded by Heslewood whose sister, Kirsty Heslewood was Miss England 2013 and placed in top 10 at Miss World 2013. 

Mr. World began in 1996 as the male counterpart of the Miss World competition. Like Miss World, the Mr World titleholder travels around the world as an ambassador of the organization and takes part in various charity events. But unlike Miss World which is held every year since 1951, Mr. World has only been held nine times so far.

End Of The Year Review - Pageantry In 2021

  And the winner is... Miss Quasi-Normal. Runners-up include Miss Apartheid Universe and Miss Covid World.         2021 pageantry was characterized by a gradual return to normalcy as pageant competitions – which had been cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic – succeeded in staging physical productions while paying close attention to universal safety guidelines. Even major events like the Tokyo Summer Olympics, which was cancelled in 2020, successfully took place in 2021. Miss Universe and Miss Grand International held two editions (one each for 2020 and 2021), The Miss World finals was postponed for March 2022 after several contestants had tested positive for COVID-19 in Puerto Rico which hosts the pageant. The year was also a milestone for Miss Universe and Miss World’s 70th anniversary and Miss America’s 100th anniversary.
