Many Vietnamese male models competed in several international male beauty pageants in 2023, taking home various coveted titles.

Among them are Huynh Vo Hoang Son, who was the first runner-up at the 2023 Mister Universe Tourism, and Nguyen Quoc Tri, who secured the third runner-up title at the 2023 Mister Tourism World.

Ngo Hoang Linh was named the third runner-up at the 2023 World Fitness Supermodel, while Le Huu Dat claimed the fourth runner-up title of the 2023 Mister Global.

Vietnam has yet to organize any male beauty pageant for models, but it sends many male models to international beauty competitions each year.

Over the past few years, Vietnam's male representatives have participated in varied global beauty pageants, and won lots of remarkable titles. 

In 2023 alone, Vietnam saw multiple title-holders return from global male beauty contests.

Model Son, recognized as the first runner-up in the grand finale of Mister Universe Tourism 2023 held in Bali, Indonesia, in March, currently serves as a doctor at Military Hospital 175 in Ho Chi Minh City.

Son competed in the beauty pageant to make his dream of being a model and actor come true.

The title encourages him to participate in community-driven activities and promote tourism, he said.

Tri recounted that he was surprised to be named the third runner-up of the 2023 Mister Tourism World, which was held in Brazil in early December.

Tri, 28, works as a master of ceremonies.

With his efforts and determination, model Linh won the third runner-up title of the World Fitness Supermodel in 2023, which took place in Thailand in late May.

He underwent a remarkable transformation, shedding 47 kilograms from his original weight of 132 kilograms to participate in the competition.

“Being a part of the contest allowed me to call on people to live positively and be confident,” Linh said.

He is a freelance model and fitness trainer in Ho Chi Minh City.

Dat, who clinched the second runner-up title of the first Mister Vietnam in 2019, was named the fourth runner-up in the final of the Mister Global 2023, hosted by Thailand in November.

Their wins at these international male beauty pageants have highlighted Vietnamese models’ talent and beauty.

Moreover, the title-holders have played a significant role in showcasing Vietnamese culture and costumes to the world, particularly through traditional and ethnic costume categories.
