MANILA, Philippines — Six men from the Mister International Philippines stable will head out to different global contests to represent the country, and hopefully bring home titles from their respective competitions.

In a “sashing ceremony” held at the Novotel Manila Araneta City in Quezon City on Sept. 8, the Mister International Philippines (MIPH) organization officially conferred national titles to the pageant’s four runners-up chosen during the contest’s finals last June 27. A top 10 finisher also received his own overseas assignment.


Myron Jude Ordillano took home the top title Mister International Philippines at the culmination of the organization’s inaugural competition, and will compete in the 14th edition of the Bangkok-based Mister International pageant which will be staged in the Philippines next month.

Before the staging of the national pageant’s coronation ceremony, MIPH already announced that two runners up will be sent to their own international competitions. In August, two more runners-up received their respective global assignments, while a finalist was announced as another Philippine representative abroad earlier this month.


First runner-up Mark Avendaño received the Mister Global Philippines title, and will head out to Thailand for the Mister Global tilt. Second runner-up Michael Ver Comaling got the Mister National Universe sash, and will also fly to Thailand for the Mister National Universe contest sometime next year.

The two gentlemen’s international assignments were made known during the coronation ceremony in June as they were proclaimed runners-up.

In August, MIPH also announced that 3rd runner-up Kitt Cortez and 4th runner-up Andre Cue will be sent abroad to represent the Philippines in international competitions in November.

Cortez received the Mister Tourism International Philippines title and will fly to Indonesia for the Mister Tourism International pageant, while Cue got the Caballero Universal Filipinas sash, and will head to Venezuela for the Caballero Universal contest.

MIPH also appointed Cue as Mister Teen International Philippines in July. The organization’s president, lawyer Manuel Deldio, told the Inquirer that in the event where he brings home the Caballero Universal title from Venezuela, he will no longer take part in the international contest for teenagers scheduled in Laos in June 2023.

Earlier this month, MIPH announced that it has also secured the license for the inaugural edition of the Miss and Mister Beauté International pageant in Turkey, and designated top 10 finalist John Ernest Tanting as the country’s representative in the contest’s male division. He finished sixth overall in the national competition, the national pageant’s spokesperson Norman Tinio told the Inquirer.

MIPH will hold auditions this month for Tanting’s female counterpart for the Istanbul-based pageant scheduled in November. JB
