They came, they flexed, they conquered. Muhammad Fuad and Sammy Phua out-muscled the competition at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway on Saturday (Dec 5) to win the Manhunt Singapore and Manhunt Singapore (Senior) titles respectively.

Despite the lack of supporters in the crowd, Fuad, 25, beat 19 hopefuls to emerge the winner and make history of sorts – the graphic designer is the second Malay winner in 27 years of competition - the last winner 25 years ago.

Shocked by his win, Fuad wrote on Facebook on Saturday that he kept “replaying the whole event over and over again in my head” to be sure that it did happen.

Also making history in his own way, was cosplayer Kenneth Ting, who bounced back from a severe neck injury in October to make it into the top five of the Senior category and take home the Mr Fabulous award - one which he undoubtedly deserved. Despite feeling a great deal of discomfort, the 34-year-old, who was left almost paralysed after a stunt gone wrong, tried to stay positive and give his best smile during the competition.

Apart from the Manhunt (Senior) title, the 33-year-old was also won the Most Well Groomed (Senior) award. The self-confessed quiet guy whose wife encouraged him to take part in Manhunt to come out of his shell said the competition has given him a newfound confidence.
