Subject: Mister International 2009 is Mister Bolivia.

A Bolivian student beat off heart throbs from around the world to win an international male beauty pageant in Taiwan on Saturday.

Bruno Kettels, 20, won out against 30 other hopefuls to take the Mister International crown.

Kettels, an engineering major, was crowned in front of an audience of 400 in a hotel in the island's central city of Taichung after walking down the catwalk in swimwear and evening wear. He was also interviewed.

"He's confident and he presents himself with style," said Alan Sim, president of the Mister Singapore organisation which created the pageant.

Kettels, who succeeded last year's Ngo Tien Doan of Vietnam, won 5,000 dollars and sponsorship contracts worth up to 45,000 dollars. He will also travel the world to promote AIDS awareness and other charity causes, Sim said.

The first and second runner-ups are Hector Soria of Spain and Marcelino Gebrayel of Lebanon.

[> Subject: Congratulations to Bruno! He was one of my top choices. Spain making first runner up was a bit of a surprise only because he didn't have the best physique, but he was one of the best looking ones there. Lebanon - well, aside from Wissam Hanna, they've always sent overrated contestants who place far too high. Complete results (from Pageantopolis) inside.

Like last year, there's weird results throughout. Taiwan making the top 15 and 10 - well, it's not like I didn't predict that right here a few days ago. Singapore doing this well is also a joke. Belgium was overrated as well - who cares if he looks like (the also overrated) Zac Efron? Slovenia was fantastic from the neck down.

France and Poland making the top 5 pleases me. France had one of the sleekest looks (definite improvement from Mister Universe Model in April) and Poland had a 'real man' sexiness to him.

Glad to see Ireland make the top 15, surprised that Vietnam and USA didn't make the top 10, and really surprised that Costa Rica, Great Britain and Greece were left out in the cold altogether.

Thanks to MSO for putting on the only major male pageant of 2009!
