On Saturday, May 19, a host of lucky audience members got up close and personal with the 31 finalists of Manhunt Singapore 2018, who strutted, did headstands, and of course, flashed their sculpted physiques to the crowd. 

Sure, there was a good deal of silliness -- and some eyebrow-raising outfit choices -- involved. So we'll hand it to the guys for being game to pose and preen as if their lives depended on it. 

After combing through the many, many photos of sweaty, half-naked men, we've singled out a few of our personal MVPs for posing, Renaissance statue-like, in Beam Artistes' annual pageantry of the male form.

As much as we appreciate all three tickets to the gun show, we'll give Luke Newton (pictured in the middle) extra points for his intense smize.

Handstands can look a little goofy, but Austrian contestant Richard Englisch posed gracefully even mid-flail.

Because nothing toughens up a gym towel-style loincloth like a fighting pose.

Questionable headgear aside, it's clear these guys have worked hard to sculpt their physiques ahead of the competition.
