Philippine representative Jeff Langan is now in Goldcoast, Australia for the Manhunt International 2018 pageant.
“I will do my best (to win the title),” the Filipino-American told Bulletin Entertainment few days before his departure. He was named Manhunt Philippines 2018 early this month.
Jeff brought two pairs of sportswear, two pairs of smart casual outfit, and a tuxedo created by renowned fashion designer Francis Libiran, which he will wear come finals night on Dec. 2.
His national costume is described as a “golden warrior outfit.”
In preparing for the finals, the 6’11” stunner said he tries his best to stay on his diet. He is not worried about the question and answer part of the competition, saying “It’s more on a personality questions. It’s better for me because I like being myself.”
Manhunt International is the world’s most recognized and longest running international male contest. It aims to promote new faces for the male modeling and fashion industry, while becoming role models and good corporate citizens for younger people to look up to. June Macasaet was the first Filipino to bag the title in 2012.
An international model based in Las Vegas, Nevada himself, Jeff is confident enough he can slay the Manhunt International runway.
“I feel like I was born for this,” the 25-year-old hottie said.
Jeff feels grateful being able to represent the Philippines in the international stage. He then acknowledged the support his kababayans have given him.
“It feels good (being able to represent our country). It feels like I have a purpose for something in the end because I get to represent my country which is the Philippines so I’m really excited,” he said, adding he plans to pursue a showbiz career after the pageant.
Sexual harassment has been a hot topic on pageantry over the past months.
Asked if such incident also happens in male beauty pageants or even in the modeling industry, Jeff noted: “I couldn’t really say because this is my first pageant. But in the modelling world, yes, I guess it happens from time to time.”
“But I’ve been well protected with the agencies I have been with so every time I go out on the shoots, they know the clients, so it’s never really sketchy,” he added.
