The news surprised many as beauty pageants are generally aimed at women and Although the Mister Supranational has only five editions, Peru has participated in four of them.
It was in 2016 that the Polish businessman, producer, and director of Miss Supranational, Gerhard Von Lipinski, founded the male beauty pageant Mister Supranational, with the Panamanian Marcela Lobón, creator of WBA (World Beauty Association).
The first edition of the contest was held on December 2, 2016 at the Municipal Sports and Recreation Center (MOSIR), in the city of Krynica-Zdrój, in Poland, with the participation of 36 candidates.
Of all the contestants, it was Diego Garcy from Mexico who became the first Mister Supranational winner. At that time, a Peruvian representative was not sent to the competition.
The following year, 2017, Peru debuted in the contest with Franklin Balarezo, who failed to reach the Top 20. Meanwhile, Garcy handed over his title to Venezuelan Gabriel Correa and crowned him as his successor.
In 2018, Andrés Vilchez was chosen to travel to the Polish city of Krynica-Zdrój and participate in the contest. The Peruvian was not lucky either and it was Prathamesh Maulingkar of India who was chosen as Gabriel Correa’s successor.
In 2019 the fourth edition of the Mister Supranational was held, where Peruvian Alonso Martínez Vivanco was second finalist in the contest. Prathamesh Maulingkar, presented his title to Nate Crnkovich of the United States.
