And here’s a look through the crown-holder’s Instagram to prove it.
1. Behold, mortals, this year’s Mister International: Neil Perez.
2. Hailing from the Philippines, Neil was crowned on February 14 in Ansan, Korea.
His real name is Mariano Perez Flormata, but hey, as long as he can *neil* me — I’m sorry, I’ll stop.
3. Before ascending to the crown, Neil belonged to the Philippine National Police’s Aviation Security Group as a bomb and explosives technician.
I’ll refrain from the many “explosive” and “the D so bomb” jokes, you know, out of respect.
4. Since his victory, Neil has been busy with his Mister International duties, making press stops nearly everywhere in the Philippines and in Asia.
6. To relax.
7. And to have fun.
