Complete list of Man of the World 2022 candidates


Man of the World 2019 Jin Kyu Kim, 29, of South Korea will crown his successor in Baguio City, Philippines on June 18, 2022. It will be the fourth edition of the international male beauty pageant.

It was Daniel Georgiev, 29, of Bulgaria who won Man of the World 2019 at the Fil-Oil Flying V Center in San Juan City, Metro Manila, Philippines on July 11, 2019. Kim was runner-up to Georgiev.


The Bulgarian winner was dethroned after he declined to sign an exclusive contract with Prime Event Productions Philippines (PEPPS), which organizes the beauty pageant. On July 29, 2020, Kim was officially crowned as the new Man of the World 2019.

Because of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Kim was not able to crown his successor in 2020 and in 2021. Here is the list of the 30 candidates competing for the Man of the World 2022 title:
