He may have ended his reign last year by awarding the Mister International 2015 title to Pedro Mendes but Mariano “Neil Perez” Flormata is still one visible international titleholder after having cemented himself a winner of major male pageant via Mister International 2014.
Neil went back to his work in the Philippine National Police (immediately after winning Mister International 2014 actually) and at the same time, continuing his engagements with PEPPS after the departure of Rein Villareal (Mister International Philippines 2015) to Gentlemen of the Philippines. He also attended engagements abroad and is expected to come back to the stage as Mister International Philippines when he crowns the national bet to Mister International 2016 on the Misters of Filipinas 2016 Finals Night (Date still to be determined) .
His work ethic as a policeman shows the way he still presents himself at the moment, for the time being, your blogger felt that this was even a better version of himself when he competed and won in 2014. Cosmo.ph recently named Sir Neil as one of the Philippines’ Beautiful Blue Collar Boys (truly deserving tag alright?)
Your blogger was already a fan of Neil ever since the Misters of the Philippines 2014 stint, but this whole thing I get to read about him, it would be a crime not to talk about it. 🙂
