Male pageantry came into existence in early to mid-1990’s. Over the years, the world witnessed the arrival of several male pageants. These events offered young men with a credible and strong platform, where they can reach out to greater number of people and impart a positive influence at a larger scale. However, these events were marred by several challenges including irregular occurrences and inconsistencies in staging. Almost after two decades since the advent of male pageantry, there came a pageant that proved its worth and cemented itself as a successful global event instantly. It was the Mister Global championship.
The Mister Global championship was created by Thai entrepreneur, pageant analyst and businessperson, Pradit Pradinunt. The gentleman is often referred to as the driving force behind the colossal success of Mister Global championship. His creative and farsighted vision made Mister Global one of the biggest and most prestigious titles in international male pageantry. Under his leadership, the Mister Global championship joined hands with some of the major national level male pageants in the world, amplifying its prestige and influence. Today, most of the delegates that compete at Mister Global are national level titleholders who win their entry to Mister Global championship after winning the national pageants in their respective nations.
While most of the international male pageants take place for just 5 to 7 days and everything is rushed in a hurry, the Mister Global championship stretches up to almost 2 weeks, offering proper time to all the activities to take place in a well-formulated manner. During this 2-week extravaganza, the candidates from different parts of the world take part in a series of preliminary challenges and pre-pageant activities, and also get the chance to explore different cities and towns. The candidates get the opportunity to interact with their supporters and admirers and also take part in a series of press-meets and media events. Different preliminary activities and challenges are the major highlights of this championship. The most anticipated segment of the event is the National Costume competition, where candidates from different parts of the world walk down the runway, wearing exquisite attires showcasing their respective nation’s culture and heritage. This round is followed by fitness and swimwear segment and formal wear segment.
Along with all its glitzy and glamour quotient, the championship also focuses on several social causes and advocacies. The motto of the pageant is “Inspiring Gentlemen” and according to the president of the event, Pradit Pradinunt, the winner of Mister Global contest is more than just a beauty pageant titleholder; he is a spokesperson for various charitable causes and advocacies that the organization is associated with. One of the major causes that the Mister Global championship works for is conservation of environment and biodiversity. All these aspects make Mister Global championship a perfect blend of glitz, glamour and social purposes and causes.
