And it is on.
The Philippines’s bet AR dela Serna is now currently in Nowy Sacz in Poland for the 1st Mister Supranational pageant, to be held on December 3 (December 4, Philippine time) at the Miejski Ośrodek Sportu i Rekreacji (Hall of Sports).
AR, 23, hopes to become the country’s first Mister Supranational titleholder.
AR has arrived in the city of Krynica-Zdrój in Poland last Wednesday night (Nov. 23, Thursday morning, Philippine time) for the pageant’s preliminary events and activities, such as top model runway, photo and video challenges.
“It is very cold here,” AR told VRS on Facebook chat.
And it gets even busier. In the coming days, AR will participate in a number of much-anticipated events such as the talent show, preview and contestant interviews. Preliminary competitions will be held also in Slovakia on Nov. 27-29.
AR said he is ready for the pageant. In the weeks after he won Mister of Filipinas’ Mister Supranational, AR underwent courses on personality development and public speaking, attended Polish language classes, did rigid gym workouts, fielded incisive questions during interviews, took up good-grooming lessons and took (pieces of) advice from colleagues and mentors on how to keep that “winning/fighting” spirit up.
“I’ve been training for quite some time. I’m only gonna be showcasing who I am. As I represent the country. I assure everyone that I am prepared to represent the country,” AR said.
AR, the first Mister Supranational Philippines, is among pageant enthusiasts’ favorites to enter the Mister Supranational.
“I’ve set my life towards the goal. I’ve kept a very healthy lifestyle,” he said.
The live televised event will be held at the Miejski Ośrodek Sportu i Rekreacji (MOSIR), Krynica’s main events venue with capacity for 3,000 people. The production promises to be a total success.
(Note: To help AR to win the premier edition of Mister Supranational, you need to download the MobStar app. If he gets the MobStar People’s Choice Award, he would easily advance in the semifinal round during the finals night!)
