And here’s a look through the crown-holder’s Instagram to prove it.
1. Behold, mortals, this year's Mister International: Neil Perez.
2. Hailing from the Philippines, Neil was crowned on February 14 in Ansan, Korea.
His real name is Mariano Perez Flormata, but hey, as long as he can *neil* me — I’m sorry, I’ll stop.
3. Before ascending to the crown, Neil belonged to the Philippine National Police's Aviation Security Group as a bomb and explosives technician.
I’ll refrain from the many “explosive” and “the D so bomb” jokes, you know, out of respect.
