Let’s gets closer as he shared his insights during our recent interview:

 

With the Philippines outstanding performance in pageant, are you pressured to deliver?

There is always pressure in everything we do, especially if we are competing. But with right preparation, pressure becomes an excitement. Sabi nga ni Abraham Lincoln, “I will prepare and some day my chance will come.”  At this time, I’m more excited than pressured.

What is your favorite part of the competition?

“If some candidates are afraid of the question and answer, it’s the segment that I enjoyed most. It’s the make or break segment!”

It’s interesting to note that he was the most applauded finalist in Question and Answer during the Mister International Philippines finals in Flying V arena last year and finished 1st runner up. Placencia is still finishing his bachelor’s degree in Political Science in Siliman University.

What are the places that you want to visit in Thailand?

I always see the pictures of temples and elephants from Thailand, I would love to see places that reflect their history and culture when I arrive in Thailand, Hopefully I have enough time to visit Thailand’s best places.

With the global unrest happening in Thailand, are you afraid about your security?

“Not at all. I was told that the political situations in Bangkok is getting better and besides the Pageant will travel to some parts of Thailand and not in Bangkok alone. Kahit saan naman may security and political issues.”
