Emergency and trauma nurse Nate Crnkovich, 24, will represent the United States in Mister Supranational 2019. He will be the fourth man to represent the country in the international male beauty pageant.
Crnkovich hails from Omaha, Nebraska, USA. He is 1.93m tall.
Representing Nebraska, Crnkovich competed against 12 other candidates in Mr. Supranational USA 2019. The coronation night took place in Los Angeles, California, USA on October 27, 2019.
While Crnkovich won the Mr. Supranational USA 2019 title, Zakk Davis of Maryland was first runner-up. Branden Cruz of Florida, Karthik-Karl Muddu of New York, Kaden James of Bay Area and Lance Manibog of Fresno County were the respective second, third, fourth and fifth runners-up.
Manibog was Most Photogenic. Muddu and James won the Mister Personality and Best Style awards, respectively.
Including Crnkovich, around 50 bachelors from around the world are expected to compete in Mr. Supranational 2019. The coronation night will take place in Katowice, Poland on December 8, 2019.
If Crnkovich wins Mr. Supranational 2019, he will become the international male beauty pageant’s first ever titleholder from the U.S. In the inaugural edition of the contest, Walker Barnes of the U.S. did not place.
Cody Ondrick and Nicholas Kotselas represented the U.S. in the 2017 and 2018 editions of Mr. Supranational, respectively. Both finished in the Top 10.
The reigning Mr. Supranational 2018 is Prathamesh Maulingkar of India. He was crowned in Krynica-Zdrój, Poland on December 8, 2018.
The reigning Mr. Supranational 2019 is a newbie to the travel nursing industry. He told Atlas MedStaff, “Even in nursing school, I knew it was something I always wanted to do so it was more just a matter of getting the experience in the emergency room.”
“I wanted to make sure I had at least two years of critical care experience working as a trauma and ER nurse at Bergan Mercy here in Omaha,” Crnkovich continued. “So once I felt I had enough experience, I felt competent in my skill sets and just being a competent RN, I felt that I was ready to do traveling.”
