Mr Denmark Wins Mr World - Here's A Look At The Contenders

The winner of Mr World - the spin-off competition of Miss World - has been announced: Nicklas Pedersen aka Mr Denmark.

"His strong performances throughout the competition added to his good looks, strong personality and great character gave him the necessary attributes to be Mr World," said organisers.

In second place was Emmanuel Ifeanyi Ikubese from Nigeria, with Jose Pablo Minor from Mexico in third.

As we reported earlier in the week, Miss World could learn from Mr World: if only they ditched beach beauty and dress categories for 'extreme challenge' and 'multi-media' perhaps then we might take it more seriously.

The male version of the competition took place in Torbay, dubbed the "English Riviera' on the website, and featured 46 hopefuls from all over the world.

The extreme challenge category was one of five, and involved going through a drill with the UK Royal Marine Commandos to test 'strength, endurance and determination'. The winner of that category was Moldova's Valeriu Gutu.

Each round gained them points, and they were heavily scrutinised over two weeks.
