William Pagayon, Mr. Tourism International 2015

1 William-Pagayon-Maestro-Orobia 2 William-Pagayon-Maestro-OrobiaKAHIT BUSY ako, naisingit ko pa ring mag-interbyu kahit subsob na tayo sa trabaho dahil malapit na ang art exhibit ko. Tinawagan kasi tayo ni Tita Annie Ayroso para tulungan ang handler na si Herald Domine. Nakita natin ang mga macho guwapito sa loob ng studio ng GMA 7. Sila ang male counterpart ng ating mga pamosong pageants sa larangan ng kakisigan, kamachuhan, katalinuhan, kaguwapuhan, at marami pang mga kategorya. Ang mga ito ay dumaraan din sa maraming mga pagsasanay at exposure upang mapili ang pinakaangat at nararapat na isali sa international competition.

Isa na rito si William Pagayon na tubong Iloilo City. Nasungkit niya ang titulong Mr. Tourism International 2015 at lalahok sa Panama sa October 2016. Sa kanyang tindig at porma, halatang malakas ang kumpiyansa ni William na maiuuwi niya ang nasabing world title.

Narito ang aking panayam sa kanya.

Bakit mo naisipang sumali sa Mr. Tourism International?

“I started joining pageants way back three years ago with an advocacy of I wanted to inform gentlemen, not only gentlemen here in the country, but all people in the world, respectful and God-fearing individuals. So, that’s my advocacy and that is why I wanted to set an example, that is why I joined.

Ah, bukod dito sakaling nanalo ka, ano ang posibleng pangarap mo?

“Now that I won, I became a representative. Next year, sana masungkit natin ‘yung titulo na Mr. Tourism International. First, if I’ll win the title next year, I will work closely with the Department of Tourism because my role as a winner is to promote our country, not only to our country but to all tourism industries all over the world. So, ‘pag sa showbiz binigyan tayo ng chance, and the door is open, why not? So, willing naman tayo doon, ‘di ba?

“Ako naging commercial model na rin ako, nagawa ko na rin like acting, pero ako I wanted to be a host kung sakali dito sa GMA. Kasi sa tourism I like speaking and talking to people. So, I can see myself working as a host. Ako, I look at myself as a host of a travel show na more on tourism kasi eh, sobrang traveler ako, eh. I’ve been out of the country. I’ve been all around the Philippines. Kaya siguro ako na-bless na ibinigay sa akin ‘yung title kasi I’ve experienced Philippines 85%. I know everything in the Philippines and I look up as a host of GMA like Drew Arellano.”

What if this question is asked during the pageant: ‘How would you define the beauty of the Philippines if there are political chaos in your country?’

“The beauty of the Philippines is given by God to the people. We need to spare the government issues and tourism industry because the Philippines with all due respect to all people in the world, Philippines is a hundred percent creation of God, it is distinct beauty because it is 100% beauty of panoramic scene. We have here the best seasons. Yes, I believe that Philippines is a respectable country. The best that we have here in the Philippines is the genuine friendship and the way we take care of every foreigners that come here in our country.”

Posibleng isang araw mahilig ka rin sa theater?

“Yeah theater but not musical, hahahaha! Yeah, I can act because of my experience.”

Ano ang pinakagusto mo sa babae na liligawan mo?

“Ah, ako mahilig ako sa sobrang simple. First way, nakukuha ako sa pag-aalaga sa pamamagitan ng pagluluto. Ako, personally, I cook. So, ‘yung taong mag-aalaga sa akin ay dapat masarap magluto at number one rule ‘yan ng nanay ko.”

Ang pinaka weakness mo ay….

“Magaling magluto! Hahahah!”
