In its fifth year, the Mister Global men's beauty pageant is basically a slew of sizzling, shirtless men from all around the globe competing, and we're sad we didn't hear about it sooner!
For the 2019 Mister Global beauty pageant, men from around the world posed in national costumes representing the traditions and cultures of their home countries for breathtaking portraits taken by photographer, David Ryo. The competition, held on September 26 and hosted in Thailand every year, follows the format of typical beauty pageants, like Miss Universe, with men competing for the title of the most 'Inspiring Gentlemen' for their involvement in various philanthropic endeavors and as leaders in their community. Oh, did we mention they were hot?
The stunning portraits featured the contestants from various countries such as Haiti, Nigeria, and more, showing off their best, smoldering stares while representing their home country in traditional garb. Some were shirtless with elaborate headdresses while others were fully clothed in the customary fashion from their country. All-in-all, the portraits of these inspiring gentlemen representing their respective countries' rich cultures had our jaws on the floor.
