Mr. World Canada

Mr. World Canada (sometimes informally referred to as Mr. Canada) is a Canadian male beauty pageant that runs in parallel with the Miss World Canada pageant, the two sending their winners to compete in the Mister World and Miss World pageants respectively.[1] Darren Storsley, the organizer of the Miss B.C. World pageant, was named Mr. World Canada in 2007.[2] Ron Wear of Edmonton, Alberta won the competition in 2010.[3] Wear went on to compete in Mister World 2010, but he did not win.[4] Wear attested to his Mr. World Canada duties preventing him from pursuing an acting career to the extent that he would have liked.[5] In 2012, Frankie Cena of Burnaby, British Columbia won the Mr. World Canada competition.[6] Cena was an undergraduate student at the University of British Columbia at the time, and went on to use his title to model, act, and represent Canada to other nations.[7] At Mister World 2012, Cena ranked first at the talent show, second in the multimedia competition, and tenth overall.[8] While Mr. World Canada, Cena sang at the Warmth of Light Musical Banquet hosted by Miss World Canada contestant Selina Yue.[9]
