Call him an international man of mystery -- this year's Manhunt winner, Simon Shen, 27 (pictured left), was born in Taiwan, moved to New Zealand when he was 8 years old, and settled down in Singapore, where he now works as a chiropractor. Standing at 1.84m, Simon is not only handsome and fit, but he is deeply idealistic, as he spends his spare time doing charity work for teenagers and teaching Sunday school. 

The event, held at One Farrer Hotel and Spa on 8 September, also crowned Damien Koh (pictured right), 31, the winner of Senior Manhunt. Once quiet and withdrawn, Damien came into his own after picking up martial arts. Today, he works as a personal trainer. 

Both winners earned prizes and cash worth a total of $35,000.

The panel of judges included Julian Hee, actor and winner of Manhunt Singapore 2002; Singapore fashion icon Daniel Boey; actress Ase Wang, and Chinese model Gu You Ming.
