Looking Back on The History of Miss America Pageant
Video

Mister Global, the annual male beauty pageant, crowned its winner on Tuesday night, and while Mr Spain may have stood out to the judges as the clear winner, the true stars of the show were the national costumes each contestant wore to represent his country.

The pageant first began in 2014 but was on a two-year hiatus due to Covid making this year's event highly anticipated. With 33 contestants ready to show off their good looks and confidence, the pageant did not disappoint.

The show is broken into several sections: National Costumes, Swimwear, Evening Wear, and the question portion.

While each section promises to provide good looks, all eyes were on the National Costume portion of the contest where each contestant is asked to authentically represent his country.

Social media was abuzz Wednesday morning where several stood out as particularly incredible.

Mister Global Nigeria, Emmanuel Somto wore a costume representing the Nigerian bird. While the Instagram caption for Mister Nigeria says it is for the eagle, the actual national bird of Nigeria is the black-crowned crane.
