And your Mr PE UberMANn 2018 is…

After three months of gruelling training and fiery determination, the winners of the Mr PE UberMANn and Junior UberMANn for 2018 were chosen during the Gala Evening at the Boardwalk International Convention Centre (ICC) on Saturday.

Of the 12 finalists, only one would be crowned this year’s Mr PE UberMANn. And this year, the new Junior UberMANn competition had six young men aiming to become the first to be crowned.

The ICC was filled to capacity with the finalists’ supporters all cheering for their favourites to emerge victorious.

After the finalists strut their stuff for the last time the judges gave their results and the winners were selected.

The 2018 winner of the Sun Boardwalk Mr PE UberMANn was Ofentse Boloko, and the first ever Sun Boardwalk Junior UberMANn, was Marco Venter.

“This was an unbelievable experience. I never thought that out of the three months I would be the one standing at the top. I am a proud resident of Port Elizabeth, I will treat this title with honour and the utmost respect as the ambassador of Port Elizabeth,” said Ofentse.

“I think this is a big honour to represent PE in a junior position, I hope I fulfil my position to showcase Port Eliabeth as the best city in the world,” said Marco.

The 2018 title holder will be ambassadors for the city of Port Elizabeth and support three charities during their reign, namely Domestic Animal Care, the Khayalethu Youth Centre and a charity of their choice.
