Mr.Manhunt Singapore 2011!

Yes...You guys can scold me for being slow in updating you guys about the latest Mr.Manhunt Singapore 2011...especially since the Meet-The-Guys-In-Swimtrunks-Sentosa session was held last Saturday Night?

1. Juan Wen Jie
Age: 27 years old
Height: 186 cm
Weight: 74 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Mixed Martial Arts

A natural born curious cat, Juan is always looking for something new, something fun and something interesting. He likes to push himself to the limit, hence he engages in mixed martial arts and Muay Thai frequently.

2. Charles Pan
Age: 21 years old
Height: 186 cm
Weight: 81 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Reading; finding out about himself and the world.

Charles never thought of joining Manhunt. Why? Because for many years in his life, he was overweight and looked awkward.

He took up drama in Junior College in an effort to learn to speak better. As fate would have it, Drama caused him to lose weight too, because, according to him, the female lead was so hot, he just had to!

3. Kenneth Li
Age: 24 years old
Height: 183 cm
Weight: 74 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Cooking; Swimming

Kenneth once dropped out of his polytechnic education because he was so playful. However, after his stint in National Service, he decided to turn over a new leaf and restarted his studies.

He joined Manhunt because he feels it is a once in a lifetime opportunity and wants to meet new people to expand his network.

4. Treviz Tan
Age: 22 years old
Height: 180 cm
Weight: 70 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Dance shuffling

Treviz underwent a dramatic near-death experience whilst serving in the army when he fell out of a chopper 8 stories high.

During his fall, he felt like things slowed down before hitting the ground and his family and friends flashed in his mind.

He realised from this experience that life is short and he wants to give his all.

5. Zeon Loh
Age: 21 years old
Height: 180 cm
Weight: 68 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Weight-lifting; Muay Thai

A Muay Thai enthusiast, Zeon trains rabidly for it as well as for Olympic weightlifting despite a heart condition in his childhood.

Zeon is an example of triumphing over odds.

6. Muhammad Ozalif
Age: 27 years old
Height: 179 cm
Weight: 75 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Playing the guitar; cooking.

"Oz" grew up in a 3-room flat which he shared with 6 family members. Facing financial difficulties, he had to stop his 'O' Levels to support his family and himself after his National Service.

Taking part in Manhunt has boosted Oz's confidence considerably.

7. Shane Pow
Age: 21 years old
Height: 179 cm
Weight: 70 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Collecting vintage Vespa; basketball

Shane is currently serving his National Service. He studied Mass Communication in polytechnic and has always been interested in media, both radio and print.

8. Sherwin Ong
Age: 20 years old
Height: 172 cm
Weight: 61 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Cooking; Canoeing

Before his birth, Sherwin was diagnosed with a 50% chance of having Down Syndrome. Thankfully he was born a healthy, handsome child.

However he struggled with self-image issues as during his childhood as he had severe eczema and asthma. He hopes to improve on his inter-personal and social skills and thinks that he will do just that by joining Manhunt.

9. Shahid Mazali
Age: 24 years old
Height: 178 cm
Weight: 70 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Gardening

Shah was born skinny, being called names like "beanpole" by friends. Although he laughed it off, he would cry and tell his mum but she did not see it as a problem.

Today, he is a certified personal trainer and has graduated with a Bachelor in Exercise Science with Honours. Having struggled with weight issues for a large part of his life, Shah feels that he can be a role model for fat and skinny teenagers.

10. Owen Chong
Age: 24 years old
Height: 176 cm
Weight: 72 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Scuba diving; Wing Chun

Owen suffered from severe bronchitis and nasal constrictions as a child. This led to him taking up swimming and gymnastics and sports to increase his lung capacity. His impressive physique was thus borne out of such exercises.

He wishes to achieve personal growth and satisfaction from this competition

11. Adrian Tan
Age: 26 years old
Height: 178 cm
Weight: 63 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Wakeboarding; Swimming

Adrian grew up under a strict family upbringing which caused him to become very rebellious. As a result he fell into bad company.

As he matured over the years, his rebellious nature has evolved into a strong and resolute will. He now works as an engineer.

12. Elton Liaw
Age: 19 years old
Height: 173 cm
Weight: 60 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Dancing; working out in the gym

A shy and introverted boy, Elton watched the Manhunt show at the Hereen in 2009 and was inspired to be like the contestants he saw then. He has been building up his confidence over the years since.

The result? He finally feels confident enough to take part in Manhunt this year.

13. Tan Jia Jun
Age: 18 years old
Height: 172 cm
Weight: 62 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Rock climbing; gymming; swimming

From some of the enthusiastic comments on Facebook, we can see that his friends remain committed in their support.

14. Desmond Lau
Age: 22 years old
Height: 178 cm
Weight: 70 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Breakdancing; weight-lifting

Desmond was a fat kid when he was young but became more sporty and started bulking up as he grew.

Articulate and charismatic, Desmond was encouraged to take part in CLEO's 50 Most Eligible Bachelors. His mum was very proud of the fact he appeared in CLEO and proudly showed off to everyone the magazine! We wonder what she would do if he wins Manhunt!

15. Yip Jian Wei
Age: 23 years old
Height: 179 cm
Weight: 69 kg
Hobbies/ Interests: Reading; playing the drums

Jian Wei used to be overweight and developed a strong inferiority complex when he became the frequent subject of his classmates' jokes in school.

16. Alex Ng
