Vietnam will be the host country for Mister Grand International 2023, organizer Voyage Group announced on Sunday evening.
According to the contest’s official Facebook page, the competition is scheduled to take place in November this year, with designer and director Le Tran Dac Ngoc selected as the head of the organizing committee.
Ngoc is also one of the four owners of the Mister Grand International pageant, marking an international beauty contest co-owned by a Vietnamese national, Voyage Group said in its announcement.
Mister Grand International was first held in 2017 in the Philippines and will celebrate its sixth edition this year, recognizing men's qualities such as masculinity, sportsmanship, and social influence.

Vietnam had its first winner, Nguyen Van Tuan, at the competition in 2019.
Tuan, however, has not engaged in many activities after being crowned.
Therefore, the organizer has vowed to have the winner of Mister Grand International 2023 carry out many meaningful community projects around the world.
Besides Mister Grand International 2023, several international beauty contests have been confirmed to be held in Vietnam this year, including Miss Grand International 2023, Miss Earth 2023, Miss Global 2023, and Miss Charm 2023.
