Mister International Philippines announced on social media the runners-up of its recently-held 2023 edition which gave 9 young men national titles and the chance to represent the country in international pageants.

From the remaining 6 contestants in the Top 15, the pageant revealed its 2 runners-up: Daeniel John Felismino of Nueva Ecija and Ryan Kristopher Sacopon of Talisay, Batangas, in that order.

According to the pageant’s social media post, the runners-up are just as important “because in the event that any one of the proclaimed winners are unable to fulfill the duties and responsibilities inherent in each title, the ones who are officially next-in-line will take their place.
