In an interesting twist of fate, India - who came out of nowhere - won the Man of the World 2022 contest beating heavy favorite Ukraine who placed second. This goes to show you that popularity does not equate automatic victory.
The pageant, which celebrated its fourth edition, took place on June 18 at Baguio Convention Center in Baguio City, Philippines. Thirty-seven contestants originally signed up, but only twenty-two actually showed up. Khurana was crowned by the 2019 titleholder, Jin Kyu Kim of Korea. No contest was held in 2020 and 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
