June Macasaet nabbed the prestigious title of being the 2012 Manhunt International during the pageants finals night on Friday, November 9, held in Bangkok, Thailand. The 29-year-old Batangueño also won the “New Urban Male Award.“ He has been one of the early favorites, along with Puerto Rico’s Jimmy Perez Rivera (who was hailed 3rd runner-up) and Singapore’s Jason Chee (who won the Mr. Internet Popularity poll), so the announcement did not come as disappointment.
Macasaet is the first Filipino to grab a place, and the top spot at that, in the annual male pageant since it was started in 1993.
He was a finalist for the 2012 Century Tuna Superbods before he attended the 2012 Manhunt International.
