Misters of Filipinas-Man Hot Star Jovy Bequillo ready for Thai tilt
MANILA, Philippines — Misters of Filipinas-Man Hot Star Jovy Bequillo appeared calm and collected when he showed up before members of the media for his send-off press conference just a few days before he leaves for Thailand to compete in his first international contest, so one would think he had been preparing for it for a long time. But that is not the case.
He clinched his national title exactly a month ago in a competition staged just a few weeks from his regional pageant. But for many observers, he comes off as someone who has been doing this for a long time, somebody who was born to be on stage.

Several titles were at stake for his first national pageant, But Bequillo said he has really had his eyes set on the Man Hot Star International, a new international competition in Thailand that merges pageantry, modeling, and entertainment.
The Misters of Filipinas pageant has referred to the international contest as “the newest luxurious pageant in Thailand” that is looking for a “luxury brand model to meet the needs of the national business class.
