his country and he wanted to see China."

ONE FOR THE LADIES!
Beijing has been hosting the final of the all male beauty contest 'SharMoon Manhunt International 2001'.
The event is the largest international model competition ever held in China, drawing 43 hopefuls from 42 countries and regions around the world. As the host country China fielded two contestants for the final.
The Manhunt idea was born in Singapore in 1987. Pageant director of Singapore Metromedia Co Ltd, Alex Liu staged the world's first ever modelling contest to ignore women in favour of catwalk friendly men.
The event grew to tempt worldwide entrants, with Manhunt International first held in Australia's Gold Coast in 1993. Now countries around the world dispatch their champions to attend a world final every year.
Like so many beauty contests that have gone before, Manhunt International contestants are judged on looks, physique, personality and charm.
Winners included Rajeev Singh from India, who picked up three awards - Champion of the Final, Best Costume and Mr SharMoon.
