Mister World 2014: Meet all the handsome contestants

While most of us will be tuning in to watch the first rounds of the World Cup this weekend, a bevy of male beauties will be vying for a different, but equally coveted international title – Most Desirable Man.

The world’s leading male beauty contest, Mister World 2014, comes to a head on Sunday, June 15, where 46 men from 46 different countries will face off to determine who among them is the most attractive male specimen.

Contestants are judged based on various categories, including Sports, Talent, Fashion & Style, Multi-Media and the Extreme Challenge, with points awarded individually based on performance. (There appears to be no “swimsuit competition” to speak of).
