The World Monitor
A celebrity panel of judges selected Filipino-American contestant Christopher Friel as Mr. Asia USA 2007 on Saturday April 7, at a jam-packed fundraiser for AIDS Healthcare.
Friel bested a field of 31 other handsome Asian candidates for the coveted award. In an interview with The World Monitor, he indicated that this was his second pageant win, and he projected a star-like quality which will probably take him far in his future pursuits.
First runner-up was Michael Hake a charismatic 5'8" 156lb contestant of Thai extraction, and second runner-up was Steven Arnold another good-looking Thai competitor who was also selected as Mr. Photogenic.
The evening also included a number of vocalists, dance numbers, and of course a swimsuit competition among the contestants.
The elegantly dressed audience was enthusiastic and generous with its applause, and seemed universally to be having a great time.
