The Manhunt Contest originally started in 1987, when Alex Liu, pageant director of Metromedia Singapore, decided to stage the first male model contest in Singapore. Liu consequently planned the first Manhunt contest in Singapore, which later developed into a global contest in 1993.

Vietnam initially began participating in Manhunt International in 2002, and none of the contestants had won a title until Ngo Tien Doan won the Best Body prize in 2007. A year later, Nguyen Van Thinh came second in the online poll.

Most notably, model Ngoc Tinh was crowned Mister Manhunt International 2017 and also won the Face of The Year, Mr Internet Popularity, and Best Fashion Model awards.

In 2018, Mai Tuan Anh was awarded the fourth runner-up title.

This year’s 22nd contest is scheduled to take place in Bangkok, Thailand, from May 18 to May 27.
