The competition might be over, for now, but the delegates are more active than ever, using their platforms to promote their social campaigns and all the achievements that they had during their journey.
During the competition, the delegates did a photoshoot for a South African magazine, where the 22 delegates from all around the world are together (wearing tiny little swimwear) in the photo shoot, but only 10 of them were chosen to be on the cover of their newest issue.
What was to be a dream for them, to be on the cover of a magazine, became a (hilarious) tragedy, Mr Gay Ireland (Guilherme Souza) and Mr Gay Japan (Tiger Shigetake) had their faces covered by the logo of the magazine and just showing the faces of the other 8 delegates who were chosen for the cover photo shoot. The final result? You can check it below.

Guill (Mr Gay Ireland) and Tiger (Mr Gay Japan) placed in the top 10 finalists in the competition, Guill won the award of the best face out of the other 21 delegates in the competition and he will be starring an international campaign for a cosmetic brand. Tiger won the social project challenge and also the title as Mr Congeniality. But none of that “saved” them from having their faces covered on the cover.
As we love the internet and the power that it has, the delegates used their social media platforms to share their opinions about the creative decisions and some A-M-A-Z-I-N-G memes! We all love memes, right?
