Juan Garcia Postigo Crowned World's "Most Desirable Man"


PostigoSpanish model/actor Juan Garcia Postigo has been crowned "Mr. World". The event, held in the city of Sanya on southern China's Hainan island, is what organizers call the search for the world's "most desirable" man.

According to the Daily Telegraph, "Men from 56 nations competed in the 21-day event that included tests of style, strength, perseverance, mental agility and determination. Competitors strutted their stuff on the catwalk, climbed mountains, raced bikes and held a cook-off."

There's no report on what gave Postigo the edge, but perhaps a hypnotic modely Zoolander-esque glance stunned the judges into submission.

Lucas Gil from Brazil and Jiang Lejun from China, below, were the runners up.

  5. That shot reminds me of Bill Bixby just before he turns into the Hulk, in his "how did he do that" contact lenses.

  10. What does one do with a title like that--head to the Meat Packing District, do blow and make out with strangers? Oh, never mind--Miss America has already beat him to the punch.

  12. Nice, but the whole thing is a bit odd.

  13. It just begs the question... does anyone "most desire" someone who spends that much time and money trying to prove they are "most desirable"?

  14. He looks like he's trying to sound-out a three syllable word.

  17. Why so many haters?

    Posted by: Marc | Apr 3, 2007 4:55:34 PM

  18. On first read, I thought the contest included a "cock off." Much more exciting than a cook off!

  19. This sounds like some weird "South Park"-style scam where they are all enslaved by a Gaysian villian. WTF???

  20. Blue Steel!

  21. Could they have picked a more remote venue for such an idiotic event than an island in China?

  22. I love all the haters turning their noses up when face-to-face with any of the Top 3 they'd be turning their asses up. But my real first thought was that the delegates from Latin countries always dominate ANY beauty contest they're in, male or female. Gotta hand it to them.
