Jordan Bruno from Australia has won Mr Gay World 2018 at the finale held in Knysna, South Africa.
Jordan was chosen from 19 delegates from across the globe after competing in challenges throughout the week. This is the first time Australia has won the title.
New Zealand’s Ricky Devine-White was named first runner-up, meaning the top two placegetters came from Oceania, a remarkable result.
The final places were: 1. Australia, 2. New Zealand, 3. India, 4. Taiwan, 5. Portugal.
Winning the first ever Mr Gay World title for Australia hasn’t sunk in yet, but Jordan is grateful for all the support and help that has got him to take away the ultimate title. He said he was overwhelmed and couldn’t believe it was real.
“My first emotion is surreal because I can’t believe this has actually happened,” he explained. “Am I emotional, I’m always emotional, I only cried for a minute which is pretty good for me. Normally I cry for half a day. I’m also feeling inspired, the panel of judges that elected me, they’re huge role models internationally and for their nations so to receive an award from them and get recognised means a lot,” he added.
