Tom Nuyens from Belgium won the First edition of Mister World pageant. Tom Nuyens crowned Mister World 1996 at Istanbul, Turkey on 20th September, 1996.
In Tom Nuyens words, I saw the whole competition more like a game, nothing to take too seriously. But when they actually announced ‘Belgium’ as the winner, it felt more like a dream that I had to believe. I don’t see myself any different than anybody else, although my ego knocks on my door once in a while. So no matter what kind of interpretation people give to ‘me’ or ‘to a mister world title’, it won’t change my own perspective that we are all alike, different and connected at the same time.
