Who will be Mr PE UberMANn 2017?

The time to choose the Sun Boardwalk Mr PE UberMANn 2017 winner is fast approaching, and tickets are selling out fast for the Gala Night on the 3rd of June when the decision will be made.

In its sixteenth year, the Mr PE title has increasingly grown in stature since its establishment in 2002. The aim of the title is to embrace responsibility and encourage a positive impact through community activities.

Not to be confused with modelling competitions and beauty pageants; the title carries the full weight and responsibility of the qualifying criteria set out in the entry form, as well as the expectations of all the sponsors involved.

Past Mr PE’s have undoubtedly been much needed role models to the youth of the region.

The 2017 titleholder will support three charitable organizations, namely the Association for Persons with Disability (APD), CANSA and a charity of his choice. All three will benefit from fundraising events organised by the Mr PE brand.

12 finalists have so far been on an 11-week journey that has seen them being tested on both their physical and mental strength.

The competition culminates in a spectacular and well attended gala evening at the Boardwalk Hotel International Convention Centre (ICC) on the 3rd of June. Local celebrity, Roland Gaspar, will be the MC for the event. The Director of Boss Models and Mens Health Photographer, Byron Keulemans, will be on the panel of judges for the Gala night, as well as current Mr PE, Nicholas Affat, and Miss SA 2017.
