Spectacular! This is how the final live show of Mister Supranational 2018 can be described. WIth stage director and choreographer Tomasz Baranski back in the Supra team, a fantastic stage production and an excellent group of candidates, Mister Supranational was entertaining from the beginning until the end.
Our competitors started the show as the most handsome pirates in the world, in an exhilarating opening number! They were then introduced one by one wearing Pierre Cardin smart and elegante looks, and also brought the temperature up when wearing Self Collection in the swimwear competition. The 39 hunks not only walked the runway as models, but they also danced like professionals, catching the audience´s attention and enthusiasm at all times.
