21-year-old Kevin Oduor Owiti, will Teusday night (19th) represent Kenya in Southport, UK, contesting in a pageant that seeks “The World’s Most Desirable Man.

The 5’9, athletic third-year business management and economics student at Catholic University in Nairobi, will battle it out with 46 other contestants from different countries to get the coveted tittle.

Kevin will be contesting as the first official Mr. World Kenya for almost a decade and one of the only five Africans in a pageant that seeks the crown.

The office of Mr World Kenya had been vacant since Victor Mugambi was crowned in 2007.

Kevin who loves to play all kinds of sports, from football to kickboxing says he is keen on modelling, and hopes to make a name for himself internationally in the future.

“I am humbled to be representing my country at the world finals and I hope to bring the crown home. Since I took the national title, I have been preparing myself physically and mentally with the help of some mentors who have helped me become a better version of myself,” he says.

Some of the commercials that Kevin has featured in include Kenya @50, KCB Pepea, Safaricom Tetemesha, Safaricom Fanikisha and Numi noodles

According to Mr. World official website, the pageant is looking for an all-rounded person with good looks, physical strength, charisma, charm, and a strong personality.

These are judged across five events: fashion and style, the extreme physical challenge, a multimedia award, the sports challenge and the talent competition to reveal the person who is most desirable of all.

Thereafter, the winners in these five categories earn a slot in the top 10 while the other positions are decided by a panel of judges.
