FULL LIST of Winners: Serbia is Mister Universal Ambassador 2016

After 10 days of competition, Aleksa Gavrilovic of Serbia work his way on top of the other 49 handsome candidates and won as Mister Universal Ambassador 2016. He truly embodied what the organization was looking for “Captivating Role Model”.

During the final night, the 24 years old who hailed from Novi Sad, Serbia was a clear stand out already, not just armed with good looks, but he is also very intelligent, giving impressive answers during the Top 10 and Top 5 Q&A. He’s a model and stands at 6’1″.

For our very own Mister Philippines Andrea Biondo, thank you for representing our country well.  We’re proud of you. Honestly, I thought he gave a pretty decent answer and thought he could land either 1st or 2nd runner up, but still 4th runner up is a huge accomplishment already.
