Thirty finalists for this year’s Manhunt Singapore contest were unveiled at Alkaff Mansion last week. Out of more than 100 hopefuls, 20 Manhunt Singapore finalists and 10 Senior Manhunt Singapore finalists were chosen including a father and son pair.

Senior Manhunt contestant Jack Poon, who runs an air conditioning business, was approached by organisers to take part in the competition and he “ordered” his son, 24-year-old Ryan Poon, to join him.

Though Jack is the competition's oldest contestant at 48 years old, his toned physique has given the other younger contestants a run for their money, Ryan included.

“My father’s body is so much better than mine,” said the former hairdresser in an interview with a local paper, but he is confident he can get his body in tip-top shape for the grand final in December.

Besides hot bods and lookers, we also have a hero in our midst - “MRT hero”, also known as the guy who stood up to a Caucasian commuter for verbally abusing a teen over his T-shirt.

Not only did Muhammad Hanafie earn praise from the public after a video of his heroic act went viral, the 26-year-old also caught the eye of Manhunt organisers who tracked him down on Facebook and offered him a spot in the contest. Hanafie, who is currently unemployed, has also been cast in an upcoming drama on Suria. It sure pays to do good.

The Manhunt Singapore grand final will be held on December 5 at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway.
