Torbay, United Kingdom  (The Adobo Chronicles) – When Miss Philippines Megan Young won the title of Miss World last year, the United States protested, claiming that Young should have been considered a U.S. entry to the prestigious beauty pageant on the grounds that she was born in the U.S.

It’s a different story this year at the Mr. World Pageant held Sunday in Torbay, U.K.

Mr. Philippines, John Spainhour who is Filipino American, didn’t win the title. He didn’t even make it to the top 10 finalists.

Mr. America World, Inc.  the American franchise holder for the competition to select the U.S. representative to the Mr. World Pageant,  was unusually quiet and refused to answer reporters’ questions about whether it would also claim Spainhour as a U.S. entry like the U.S. did when Young won the crown.

The 2014 Mr. World title went to Denmark, with Nigeria and Mexico, taking the second and third spots, respectively.
