Filipino-American John Spainhour, a model and a former US marine scout sniper was chosen to represent the Philippines in the upcoming Mister World 2014 that will be held in Torbay, United Kingdom. The announcement was made last May 29 at the Glorietta 5 Atrium by Ms. Cory Quirino who’s heading the so-far very successful campaigns of both Miss World and Mister World Philippines since 2011.
26 year old John was born in South Carolina, USA, growing up in Manila, Philippines. Describing himself as “Disciplined, hardworking and dedicated” John is a former Marine Corp Scout Sniper. Since finishing his service, he has worked as a fashion model, and is looking for new opportunities and adventures to pursue. In his spare time he likes to be in the outdoors, going camping, snowboarding and hiking. He is also a scuba diver and likes to play video games. via MrWorldTV
Now this is good news for pageant pundits and fans because we now have a very capable candidate to hopefully succeed the current Mister World Francisco Escobar of Colombia. If you still remember, Andrew Wolff almost bagged the crown from Escobar in 2012 placing as 1st runner-up. With John’s military training and modeling experience, it should be easy for him to do the physically tasking challenges required in the pageant and at the same time pull that charm that will hopefully win him the title. Good luck John!! Make the country proud!
