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. Darren Storsley, the organizer of the Miss B.C. World pageant, was named Mr. World Canada in 2007. Ron Wear of Edmonton, Alberta won the competition in 2010. Wear went on to compete in Mister World 2010, but he did not win. Wear attested to his Mr. World Canada duties preventing him from pursuing an acting career to the extent that he would have liked. In 2012, Frankie Cena of Burnaby, British Columbia won the Mr. World Canada competition. 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. At Mister World 2012, Cena ranked first at the talent show, second in the multimedia competition, and tenth overall. While Mr. World Canada, Cena sang at the Warmth of Light Musical Banquet hosted by Miss World Canada contestant Selina Yue.
